Harrington survives to win

Despite his best efforts to "Van De Velde" away the tournament Padraig Harrington beat Sergio Garcia in a 4 hole playoff to win the British Open on Sunday at the storied Carnoustie golf course. Garcia blew a 3 shot lead on Sunday, yet almost won it after Harrington lost a one-shot lead on the 72nd hole by hitting into the Barry Burn twice for a double bogey, only to get another chance when Sergio Garcia couldn't make par from a bunker.

We aren't saying Sergio is a choker, but if Carnoustie was P.J. Carlesimo, Garcia would have morphed into Latrel Sprewell.
