This is sheer comedic brilliance. Harrington is one of golf’s best loved personalities.
This paradoy is so good because it nails one of the Irishman’s most famous character traits. He’s well known for being almost obsessively methodical in his approach to his sport, having tried some techniques that some might call unusual in an effort to stay on top of his game.
That side of Padraig’s personality is brilliantly parodied by Brendan Walton, an assistant PGA Coach based out of the Island Golf Club in Donanate in Dublin.
Joe.ie reported that Paul Lawrie thought it was so good he shared it with the European Ryder Cup team’s WhatsApp Group. Oh to be a member of that group!
I can’t decide what’s better, this impression of Padraig or the now legendary Colin Montgomerie effort from earlier in the year.
