Padraig Harrington’s final competitive outing before the Ryder Cup saw him equal his lowest round of the year – an eight under par 64 – in Paris today.

After only just surviving the halfway cut at the Vivendi Trophy, Harrington played his final 36 holes in 12 under for a much-needed boost to his confidence.

Harrington climbed all the way to joint eighth on 13 under, although the overnight leaders were only just starting the back nine at that point.

England’s John Parry turned two in front at 17 under as he strived for his maiden European Tour victory, with Swedes Johan Edfors and Jarmo Sandelin, France’s Francois Delamontagne, Dane Mark Haastrup and Dutchman Robert-Jan Derksen all snapping at his heels.
