Padraig Harrington, also known as “Paddy”, is a three-time major championship winner, capturing The Open Championship in 2007 and 2008, as well as the PGA Championship in 2008. He is the only player in the world to have partnered with Tiger Woods in a tournament five or more times and outscore him. The last tournament Padraig competed in as an amateur was the Mother & Son Tournament in Ireland, which he and his mother claimed together (although he claims this tournament was one of the most nerve-wrecking in his career).
Harrington has a tight-knit relationship with caddy, Ronan Flood, who has served him as a caddy since 2004. In 2007, Ronan married Padraig’s wife’s sister and they became brothers-in-law.
Harrington has been a Global Ambassador for the Special Olympics since May 2010. The red shoe laces he wears on tour promotes awareness of the Special Olympics and he has conducted various clinics for Special Olympic athletes and coaches. Having lost his father to oesophageal cancer in 2005, he is also a supporter of an Irish charity, Oesophageal Cancer Fun (OCF).
With a Masters win on his bucket list, Padraig says that Augusta National is "simply the most challenging golf course in the game of golf."
