Canterbury Golf Club PGA Golf Professional
It had been a while, but it was fantastic to see Padraig Harrington win again on the European Tour, his first Tour title for eight years at the weekend's Portugal Masters.
He's won three Majors of course, but you could tell this one meant a lot, and his gritty up-and-down at the final hole summed up what he's all about.
"It's a big win," said the 45-year-old. "I tried to be really aggressive. The golf course really suited me and I just tried to go after every pin I could.
"I have a pretty good short game that was on form this week. No matter where I hit it, I felt like I could get it up and down."
That short game helped him get to 23 under par, but it was his chip on the 18th that secured the title after his final approach had cannoned into the grandstands.
The impressive Andy Sullivan watched on with interest - as a playoff looked on the cards - but the Irishman's chip to five feet was right out of the top drawer, and he cleaned up for the win.
The moral of the story? Hard work and perseverance pays off! Well done Padraig.
