Harrington defeated Sergio Garcia in a four-hole playoff to win the 2007 Open Championship at Carnoustie. In the process, he became the first player from Ireland in 60 years to capture the Claret Jug, following Fred Daly at Hoylake in 1947. Earlier in the season, he broke a 25-year barren spell for the home nation at the Irish Open, defeating Bradley Dredge at Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort in a playoff to match John O'Leary's efforts in 1982.
