“I might look at the Champions Tour results before the PGA Tour results,” he said on Thursday at the Bermuda Championship, where he opened with a 4-under-67. “I don’t know what that tells you.”
It tells us that Harrington, who will turn 50 next August, is ready to finally qualify for the Senior Circuit. The Irishman last won on the PGA Tour in 2015 and on the European circuit in 2016, and his game has taken a backseat in recent years due to his responsibilities as future European Ryder Cup captain.

But the Champions Tour? That would help satisfy his urge to compete.
“I would play where I think I could win and that’s it,” he said. “So if I don’t think I can win there, I won’t play here. I’m not here to stand out – I’m here to try to win and wherever I play I think in my head that I can win. I am somehow aware that if you go to the Champions Tour you won’t come back. ”
There’s no guarantee that Harrington will come out and dominate the 50-plus-year-old set like Jim Furyk and Phil Mickelson did. Indeed, Harrington readily admits that distance is not an issue on another level – it would be his proficiency on the greens. Especially with 54-hole wins around 20 under par.
“I’ve seen a couple of guys go on the Champions Tour and they seem to have a miraculous cure for their putting,” he said. “I hope this happens to me.”
