Padraig Harrington conjured up a magical par save to keep himself in contention for the Turkish Airlines Open title on the final day in Antalya.
Harrington was tied for the lead after capping an outward 32 with a birdie at the ninth, but he looked certain to drop at least one shot at the next when his bold second from the trees came up short and found the water hazard at the front of the green.
But the Irish veteran was unfazed as he took his penalty drop, took dead aim with his pitch, and his ball landed a couple of feet to the left of the target before gripping and spinning straight into the cup.
And, as the appreciative crowd gave Harrington a huge ovation, long-time caddie Ronan Flood was perhaps unaware that the ball had dropped for a par as he handed the three-time major champion his putter!
