Harrington tumbles out of Top Ten

Home

Padraig Harrington has fallen out of the top 10 in the world – just 10 months after his back-to-back major wins.

Padraig Harrington has fallen out of the top 10 in the world – just 10 months after his back-to-back wins in The Open and US PGA Championship had rocketed him to Number three in the World and saw him poised to challenge Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
Harrington’s early exit from the Memorial tournament on Friday made it three missed cuts in his last four starts and he has not had a top 10 finish since January.
Woods, meanwhile, widened his lead at the top of the rankings again with a brilliant one-stroke victory at Muirfield Village.
The second win of his comeback from injury came with an outrageous chip-in for eagle on the long 11th and then two closing birdies.
Denmark’s Jeppe Huldahl, surprise winner of the Celtic Manor Wales Open after no top 10s in his previous 44 European Tour starts, is up from 377th to 202nd.
