Padraig Harrington Pays Off Entire Bar Tab for 40 Caddies

Padraig Harrington Pays Off Entire Bar Tab for 40 Caddies
By Nathan Molloy Updated

Days after winning €300,000 at the Ascension Charity Classic in the USA, Padraig Harrington is spending his winnings generously.

Today, the Dubliner is being thanked for picking up the entire bar tab for more than 40 caddies at a drinks do in Sioux Falls in South Dakota.

The caddies of the Champions Tour organised the party at the bar, when Padraig Harrington showed up, played a few games of pool and generously paid the bar tab when it was all over

Harrington's generosity was confirmed by Troy Martin, a caddie on the Champions Tour.

His praise for caddies

Harrington has previously stated how important he thinks caddies are in the modern game. In an interview with the PGA, he says that carrying the bag around is the least of their tasks.

You'd be shocked the job a caddie has to do out there. You know, getting the yardage and carrying the bag is the least of his work. He has to give a strong opinion when needed about clubbing and things like that.

The 51-year-old says that they often have to do the job of a psychologist out on the golf course.


But mostly he's to act as your psychologist out there. I could be getting angry over a shot that there's no reason to be angry. It's often you know, you can overread into things, when you're under pressure, you're trying to win the tournament, it's very easy to maybe hit a bad putt and think that you never hit a bad putt before. Of course, you have, so he has to be there to catch you from any self-sabotage that you would have and not let you get too excited and make sure you don't get down on yourself.

Looking for 4th win on Champions Tour

Padraig is next in action this weekend at the Sanford International Tour in Sioux Falls. He is looking to win his 4th tour of the year, and judging by his words and actions, he must have a very good caddie.
