Padraig Harrington's Blunt Honesty On Sergio Garica Provides Comedy Moment On Sky

The beef between Padraig Harrington and Sergio Garcia is well known by golf fans everywhere, and although the Irishman has revealed that it is not as tense as it once was as both men made an effort to get along for the sake of Europe's Ryder Cup team, there is still some animosity bubbling under the surface.

Harrington has been seriously impressing most who have tuned in to Sky Sports' Masters coverage this year with his outstanding commentary and analysis, as his knowledge for the game and insight into players' tendencies has shone through to great effect.

Another thing that has shone through is his honesty, and before the live coverage of the final round he gave a wonderfully blunt response to the idea that it would be great to see Sergio Garcia finally win a major and earn himself a green jacket.

Absolutely brilliant, Butch loved it.

What sort of question is that to ask someone known to have a personality clash with the golfer in question? Harrington handled it really well, got a few laughs, and then provided some more excellent analysis.

For those unaware, Harrington elaborated on their frosty relationship earlier in the show:

He's an absolute natural, and while we're hoping he won't be announcing his retirement from playing any time soon, at least when he does we can look forward to more of his punditry work and commentary.
