Open 2008 - Carnoustie flashback

Twelve months ago Padraig Harrington beat Spain's Sergio Garcia in a dramatic play-off at Carnoustie.

The Irishman won his maiden major title despite blowing a one-shot lead in the Barry Burn in regulation play in scenes reminiscent of Frenchman Jean van de Velde's infamous collapse in 1999.

Harrington put two shots into the stream in front of the 18th en route to a double-bogey six to allow Garcia, playing in the final group, a par putt to win the Open.

But the Spaniard, who was three clear overnight, missed and Harrington won after four extra holes.
