The Golf Channel's Entertaining 5-Minute Look At The 'Eccentric' Padraig Harrington

The Golf Channel's Entertaining 5-Minute Look At The 'Eccentric' Padraig Harrington
By James Carroll Updated

In an extremely entertaining interview with the Golf Channel, Padraig Harrington takes us into his home and back garden and talks us through his practice techniques.

Although there has been footage before of the three-time major winner swinging like Happy Gilmore, now Harrington is seriously experimenting with the famous Gilmore swing.

All the long hitters step, I've seen Bubba Watson foot leave the ground three times in his golf swing

Many will argue that he overthinks and tinkers with his swing too often but Harrington does not subscribe to that. He considers it evolving rather than over-thinking.

However, what Colin Montgomerie says  about him might put heed to the theory that Harrington overthinks his golf game,

He told me that his new shoes gave him five yards and his new glove gave him another seven yards

We might need to invest in the golf shoes and glove that Harrington uses to improve our golf game but hopefully Harrington can make an impact at Royal Birkdale this week and win the Claret Jug for a third time.
