ALMOST A DECADE on from his Open win at Royal Birkdale, Pádraig Harrington is back on the Southport links this week in search of his third Claret Jug and fourth Major title.
Ahead of this busy swing in the calendar, which has seen Harrington play in the Irish and Scottish Open in preparation for this week, The Golf Channel visited his home in south Dublin for a very entertaining and fascinating interview.
One of the game’s great thinkers, and described in this five-minute mini documentary as one of the game’s great eccentric minds, Harrington is always tinkering with his swing and searching for another way to make marginal gains — much to the entertainment of his fellow pros.
Have a watch below:
