Harrington grabs lead at storm-struck PGA event

February 28th, 2015

Padraig Harrington of Ireland plays his tee shot on the 11th hole during the second round of The Honda Classic at PGA National Resort & Spa - Champion Course on February 27, 2015 in Palm Beach Gardens, FloridaIreland's Padraig Harrington completed a four-under par 66 Saturday to seize a one-stroke lead over American Patrick Reed after the second round of the storm-hit US PGA Tour's Honda Classic. Thunderstorms on Friday pushed the conclusion of the second round to Saturday morning and they returned Saturday afternoon to swamp the course at PGA National, wiping out play early. Harrington, a three-time major champion who has slid to 297th in the world rankings, could have enjoyed a larger margin but a bogey-bogey finish left him on seven-under 133 after 36 holes. "At times I get lost and distracted from the process," Harrington said.
