Padraig Harrington comes agonisingly close to sinking hole in one

Padraig Harrington has had an incredible couple of days at the Czech Masters in Czechia.

The Dubliner currently trails Italian Andrea Pavan by a single stroke on the final day of the tournament after shooting 66, 68 and 65 through the opening three rounds.

Harrington will look to win his first tournament since his one stroke win at the Portugal Masters in 2016 and he had a strong start on Sunday with three birdies through the first nine holes.

He followed up a birdie on the par 5 ninth hole with another birdie on the 13th that was just inches away from finding the cup.

The three-time major winner was surprisingly pessimistic about his chances heading into the final round and hinted at signs of fatigue.

"I feel like it was a day too early," Harrington said. "It took a lot out of me, a lot of focus and I holed the putts that you'd like to be holing on a Sunday."
