WWW.IRISHGOLFER.IE Peter Finnan, on behalf of the team T his year then will mark 10-years since Tiger Woods and Padraig Harrington last won a Major Championship and ahead of this week's Hon- da Classic the Stackstown man believes Woods will add to his Major tally. "I do believe Tiger will win an- other major" said Harrington. "I think the odds would be against him getting to 18, but if you look at any of the great players in the game of golf, they've always won a major later in their career. Jack's last major came six years after he effectively retired in 1980, you see that happening a lot." Harrington and Woods have always got on well and that's been obvious whenever they've been paired together, and Har- rington believes Woods has mel- lowed in the years since his last Major victory in June 2008 at Torrey Pines. "He's mellowed. Things have changed. Clearly, physically, watching a year ago, you would have said physically he didn't have the game to come back and win. But he certainly has it now. He's hitting the ball well. If you turned around and gave most of the field his game, they would be so chuffed with it that they go out and win straighta - way with it." "If I hit the golf ball like Tiger this week, I'd win because I'd love it. But if Tiger Woods turns around and hits it like that, he may win but it won't feel as good as it did back in the day. That's what he has to deal with. Padraig Harrington talks Tiger ahead of the Honda Classic HARRINGTON: I DO BELIEVE TIGER WILL WIN ANOTHER MAJOR He's never going to have the same feel or be as good as he was back in his heyday". Harrington's last win on the PGA Tour was at the Honda in 2015 and came out of nowhere. Who's to say Harrington or Tiger can't do it again this week.
