Padraig Harrington overcomes double bogey with birdies on final 2 holes at windy Newport Beach

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Padraig Harrington won the Hoag Classic on Sunday at windy Newport Beach Country Club for his seventh PGA Tour Champions victory, rebounding from a double bogey with birdies on the final two holes. After driving left into trouble and dropping two strokes on the par-4 16th, Harrington made a downhill 15-footer on the par-3 17th and got an 8-footer to fall on the par-5 18th for a one-stroke victory over Thongchai Jaidee. Harrington closed with a 2-under 69 to finish at 14-under 199. The 52-year-old Irishman will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in June. Jaidee, from Thailand, also had a 69, parring the 18th after leaving his approach short and pitching through the green.
