Padraig Harrington: Episode 107


This week Padraig Harrington joins Jarlath on the podcast to give what is possibly the most fully loaded interview with a sports personality in the series to date. Padraig gives a masterclass in positive mental attitude techniques as well as some rare free advice on how to perfect one's swing while also explaining why a good attitude is crucial in golf, how the groove rule seriously impacted on his ability to score, why he has not read anything written about himself since he was 18, how he won 3 majors while not playing to perfection and the fun he had stealing that ugly 3rd major win.

Padraig also talks about why everybody loves being around Shane Lowry and the difference between Shane and Rory McIlroy, his famous Happy Gilmore shot, what keeps Tiger Woods motivated and why being on tour in Europe is far easier than in the States.
