Padraig Harrington wins his third PGA Tour Champions tournament of the year in St Louis

Padraig Harrington claimed his third PGA Tour Champions victory of the year on Sunday to cap off a brilliant weekend for Irish golfers.

The 51-year-old recorded his highest score of the week, but it was still enough for him to win the Ascension Charity Classic by a single shot.

Harrington's final round included eight birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey as he finished on 14 under par for the tournament.

The win earned the Dubliner almost €300,000, with YE Yang finishing a shot behind him in second and Steve Stricker one shot further back in third.

But it was a tough final round for Darren Clarke who fell down the leaderboard to finish in a tie for 24th on five under par after a last round 73, which included five bogeys and three birdies.

Harrington's win capped off a brilliant weekend for Irish golf after Shane Lowry won the BMW PGA Championship, with Rory McIlroy finishing joint-second alongside John Rahm at Wentworth.
