Padraig Harrington, of Ireland, hits his tee shot on the 11th hole during the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship golf tournament at Quail Ho...

Padraig Harrington has avoided disqualification from the Wells Fargo Championship after a spectator questioned whether he teed off ahead of the markers on the 13th hole at Quail Hollow.
Harrington thought his once promising final round was over Sunday after consecutive bogeys ended his faint chances. Instead, he then loaded into a cart with playing partner Phil Mickelson to head back to the 13th to see if they could determined where he teed off.
Harrington teed up for the 13th, then moved back because he was worried he was ahead of the markers. But he says a spectator informed a marshal he thought Harrington teed off too far forward. They couldn't find the correct divot and TV replays were inconclusive.
Harrington says the PGA Tour decided it was his decision and he was certain he teed up behind the marker.
