Harrington clinches victory at Hoag with impressive birdie-birdie finish after double bogey

Irish Golfing Legend Padraig Harrington Claims Seventh PGA Tour Champions Victory at Hoag Classic

Padraig Harrington claimed his seventh PGA Tour Champions victory at the Hoag Classic on Sunday, held at the windy Newport Beach Country Club. Despite a double bogey on the par-4 16th hole, Harrington rallied with birdies on the final two holes to secure a one-stroke win over Thongchai Jaidee.

The 52-year-old Irishman, who is set to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in June, boasts victories in The Open in 2007 and 2008, as well as the PGA Championship in 2008. With this win, he has now won eight major championships and more than 150 worldwide tournaments.

Jaidee, hailing from Thailand, also carded a 69, but fell short after a par on the 18th hole. Miguel Angel Jimenez, who played alongside Harrington and Jaidee in the final group, finished two strokes back after a final round 68. Stephen Ames secured fourth place at 11-under with a 67, while Jerry Kelly and K.J. Choi finished at 10 under and Steve Stricker was one stroke further back after a 70.
