Harrington hungry for victory at Irish Open

08 July 2018

Rory McIlroy, Rafa Cabrera Bello and defending champion Jon Rahm are among notables in the field for the European Tour's Dubai Duty Free Irish Open 2018 this week. "I am really looking forward to giving it a good go this week". Notes: Rory McIlroy's foundation is the host of the tournament, and the field has strengthened in recent years, though it features just two from the top 10 in the world in McIlroy and Rahm. The Kiwi needs a good result to secure a starting slot at next month's Open at Carnoustie.

"I started off well and missed a few chance". I didn't have a good Sunday. "It comes at a great time of the year as well, and is a couple of weeks before The Open, so it is great to have three links events in a row", said Dunne. I did that at Augusta and felt I learned from it and, hopefully, I can put myself in similar positions at the Open and the USPGA.

McIlroy admits getting married previous year has influenced his way of thinking, but added: "As you get older and as you evolve as a person you change and your perspective on things changes a little bit".

"It's still my career and I still want to make the most of it and I still feel like I have a lot of time left to make my mark on golf, but at the same time it doesn't keep me up at night thinking if I never win another major I can't live with myself".

That quickly morphed into a nationwide movement, and people began calling for President Daniel Ortega to step down. The U.S. announced new sanctions against three Nicaraguan officials Thursday.

"I played nine holes today and it is a very traditional links golf course which requires an bad lot of thinking, a lot of strategy on the golf course, which hopefully will play into my hands and gives me a lot of options", said Harrington. So got here Monday morning, practiced all day Monday afternoon.

"I've done my work".

"Nothing is going to change in my life whether I win one or not, but obviously I don't feel like I'll have fulfilled my potential", he said.

"The mindset was just keep going, I guess", said the 28-year-old, who would be just the second South African victor of the Irish Open after Bobby Locke in 1938 if he can win on Sunday. I played my first major there 11 years ago.
