Padraig Harrington is looking to keep his streak alive. He was successful in doing so with the first of the two part equation as the Irishman coasted to his third successive Irish PGA Championship. Now he has to tackle the Open Championship, this time at Turnberry. Should he successfully complete the second leg of his impressive feat, his earnings will be the same as in 2008. Its unlikely the 37-year old will be disappointed with that since possession of the Claret Jug for a third successive year would easily offset any financial short comings, if it can be classified as such.
The R&A has announced that prize money will be held at the same level as last year for this year’s Open Championship.
