Confident Harrington raring to go
Last updated: 6th November 2012
Fresh off a first win in two years, Padraig Harrington is brimming with confidence ahead of the Barclays Singapore Open.
The forecast is for sweltering heat in Singapore, but despite not being accustomed to that kind of weather, Harrington is confident he'll be able to deal with whatever nature throws his way.
"Believe it or not, it doesn't bother me one bit, it's actually a big advantage for me to come here and play in the extreme heat. I'm disciplined in what I eat and drink.
"I'm fit and I don't perspire too much. I've never been the guy you would see in a shirt with a pool of perspiration or anything like that," said Harrington.
The Irishman has some unfinished business at this event, having lost by one shot to Jeev Milkha Singh of India in 2008.
"I lost in 2008 and it was probably my most bitter loss ever on a golf course. I was two shots ahead with three holes to play and I played them in two-over par, so I came close that year and I can certainly remember those three holes very well," said Harrington.
