Golf is a humbling game. It'll make you want to cry, break a window, snap a club over your knee or worse. In the case of Padraig Harrington, the game has brought him to his knees.
On Thursday, renowned instructor Jim McLean tweeted a picture of Harrington warming up on the range ahead of Round 1 of the Barracuda Championship out in Reno, Nev. The three-time major winner is taking the Craig Stadler stance, hitting a golf ball while kneeling on a towel.

We're not sure what the drill here is or what Harrington's trying to accomplish and neither are the players behind him who look flabbergasted by the site.
It may well have helped, however, as Harrington is T-14 after two rounds in the Modified Stableford event.
