IRELAND’S Padraig Harrington insists he has already put his triple-bogey heartbreak behind him as he turns his attention to this week’s US PGA Championship.<br /><br />Harrington was one shot clear and heading for his first win of the season at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio on Sunday when disaster struck at the 16th hole.<br /><br />The three-time major winner’s foray into the water allowed Tiger Woods to win their final-round duel and claim the title for the seventh time in his gilded career.<br /><br />It was hardly the fillip Harrington would have wanted as he prepares to begin the defence his US PGA crown on Thursday, but the Dubliner vowed to learn from the ordeal.<br /><br />“I think it’s pretty much out of my system now,” he said. “You know, I’ll probably be a better player because of it. So that’s a good thing. You learn from these things. I don’t see it being an issue. I’ve got the US PGA, bigger things ahead of me.”<br /><br />Harrington, whose best finish of the season lifted him back into the world’s top 10, insisted his tussle with Tiger over a fascinating closing 18 holes would be repeated in many a future tournament.<br /><br />“Tiger did play particularly well, that’s for sure,” the two-time Open champion added. “I said to him afterwards: ‘We’ll do battle many times again.’” Woods agreed, saying: “You know, Paddy and I will definitely do it again.”<br /><br />They will lock horns in just two days’ time, in fact, at the US PGA at Hazeltine National, where Harrington and Woods will play the first two rounds in a group that also includes American Rich Beem.
