Padraig Harrington won the Asian Tour's Indonesia Open by two strokes Sunday for his first victory in four years.
The 43 yr. old three-time major champion started the final round with a four-shot lead, but on 18 found himself tied with Thailand's Thanyakon Khrongpha. But Khrongpha doubled the final hole after hitting his second shot into the water, and Harrington made par despite taking a penalty drop of his own.

The win moved Harrington from 385th in the world to 260th. In 16 starts on the PGA Tour last season, he missed nine cuts and only had one top-25 finish. He has not won on the PGA or European tours since beating Sergio Garcia and Ben Curtis by two strokes at the 2008 PGA.
