Even the AP Makes “Misktakes”

So I went to ESPN.com to read their British Open recap, which, at this point, is just AP copy, as is usually the case very shortly after any event.

And I get this (italics mine):

SOUTHPORT, England — Turns out Padraig Harrington‘s wrist was strong enough to hit all the right shots in the British Open. Better yet, it was strong enough to lift the silver Claret Jug.

Harrington became the first European in more than a century to win golf’s oldest championship two years is a row, smashing a pair of fairway metals into the par 5s Sunday that allowed him to pull away from misktake-prone Greg Norman and hold off a late charge by Ian Poulter for a four-shot victory.

I mean, that’s just damn funny, right? (As of 3:41 PM EST, it’s fixed.)
