McIlroy gets a grip on his putting
Rory McIlroy has done more than change his putting routine since he started seeing short game expert Dave Stockton - he’s also got a new grip.
The 22-year old Ulsterman has putted with a distinctive grip since his amateur days with the middle, ring and little fingers of the right hand wrapped around the left and facing the target.
"I won't get away with what I got away with today" - Harrington
Padraig Harrington shrugged off his pre-event neck problems and a wobbly back nine to keep his FedExCup hot streak going in the BMW Championship at Cog Hill.
Struggling to hit fairways on his back nine, his short game came to the rescue as he kept a bogey off his card and then birdied the last to post a three under par 68 that left him just two strokes behind leaders Rory Sabbatini and Steve Marino in share of fifth place with the likes of Tiger Woods and Geoff Ogilvy.
Harrington says "Show me the money"
It’s been a while since he was No 1 on the course but Padraig Harrington is miles ahead of the rest when it comes to performing in the press tent.
Something of a stand up these days, the Dubliner has the Americans eating out of his hand. It’s no surprise really after another phenomenal performance in the media centre on the eve of the BWM Championship at Cog Hill in Chicago.
Denied for the fourth week in a row in Boston (the last time he had four successive top-10s was his rookie season of 1996) he’s so close to winning again that his accountant’s nose can almost smell the $10m FedExCup cash.
