Watch: Padraig Harrington Drains 'Ridiculous' 90ft Putt To Save Par At Scottish Open

Padraig Harrington sits two shots off the lead after carding an opening round 67 at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open on Thursday.

While Rory McIlroy will have a battle on his hands to avoid a third missed cut in four events after his 74 left him two over and nine shots off the leader, but Harrington enjoyed a lot more fortune, particularly on the 16th.

After a wayward drive saw him forced to take a penalty drop, Harrington was looking at a costly seven until he strolled up and sank a putt from 90 feet to save par. You could tell from his reaction that it was a nice surprise.

Beautiful.

He would go on to chip in for birdie on the 17th leaving him at -5 for the day and right in contention after round one.

Go get 'em Padraig!
