Rejuvenated Harrington eyes fourth major win

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England -- Some players crumble when they arrive at the majors. For Padraig Harrington, it's usually just the opposite.

The amiable Irishman with two British Open titles and a U.S. PGA Championship already to his name has been saving his best form this year for the sport's biggest tournaments.

An eighth-place finish at the Masters was followed last month by a fourth at the U.S. Open - this from a player whose best days appeared to be behind him after that golden spell from July 2007 to August 2008.

Harrington says "I look forward to the majors -- I would find them easier than regular events."

With his putting foibles seemingly rectified and his swing improved under a new coach, Harrington is climbing slowly back up the rankings and is expected to be a threat at this week's British Open.
