Padraig Harrington holds the lead by one stroke at the 2023 Senior PGA Championship in Texas, as the field heads into their final round.
The current Senior Open champion, Darren Clarke, lies in a tie for fourth, seven shots off the lead, while Harrington, the current Senior US Open champion, holds a one shot lead over Steve Stricker.
Harrington went bogeyless over the first two days and well into his third round, before making double on the 16th.
In his post-match interview, he jokingly gave a very 'senior' reason as to why his bogey-free streak was suddenly broken.
Padraig Harrington Leads The Senior PGA Champion Ship
Padraig Harrington hadn’t made bogey in 51 holes, but he doubled No. 16. “I’ve got the silliest excuse,” he said. He tried to get into a port-a-potty after his tee shot. It was locked. “We you get over 50, sometimes it takes a long time to pee.” Had to rush to his next shot. pic.twitter.com/f2FYTmIQ7K
