What the heck is on Harrington's face?

I was flipping through the images from today’s tournaments around the globe, and came to a dead stop when I saw the image above.

Holy handlebar, Batman – what on earth has taken over the bottom half of Padraig Harrington’s face?

I’m not sure if that’s a mustache or a runner rug. Whatever it is, I’m impressed!

One other noteworthy note from today’s action. I can’t verify this, but I am wondering if this is the first time in golf history that Wi and Wie are on top of the leaderboard at the same time.

Charlie Wi shot a 64 today, and leads the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic at Disney World. Michelle Wie fired a 66, and is tied with Angela Stanford and Candie Kung for the lead at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational.

And, former LPGA Tour player Jeehae Lee (@jeehaeda) informs us on Twitter, the surnames Wi and Wie are actually the same in Korean: 위씨. So, thanks to the hirsute Mr. Harrington and the lovely Ms. Lee, we are all now suitably informed and entertained.
