For Portland’s Scott Harrington, road to PGA Tour is paved with steady progress and improvement

(Portland, OR – June 24, 2014) – In many ways, Scott Harrington maintains the same goal he has had during his 11 years as a professional golfer: to put together one or two big weeks to catapult himself onto the PGA TOUR.

But if Harrington, a 33-year-old Portland native who competes on the Tour, does finally get himself onto professional golf’s biggest stage, it won’t be because of a fluke week in which he makes every putt. Instead, it will be part of a progression in which he has improved, learned and waited patiently for his opportunity.

“I feel like I’m a much better player than I was when I was younger and playing out here, and I feel like I’m more prepared to have success,” he said.
