Padraig Harrington got off to a great start at the Tour Championship at the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta on Thursday by shooting a three under par round of 67.

The 38-year-old carded four birdies on the front nine holes and just one bogey on the way home, at the par 5 15th, and is in a three-way tie for second place after the first day's play.

Sean O' Hair is the first round leader on four under par.

Harrington is in a tie for second place with British Open champion Stewart Cink, who was the subject of a practical joke by Harrington earlier in the week (click here to read more), and Tiger Woods.
