From Ireland with Love – Padraig Harrington’s Thoughts on ‘The People’s Open’
Padraig Harrington, or Paddy as he’s affectionately called. The upbeat demeanor and unmistakably thick accent and bumpy cadence of the Irishman is simply unforgettable – say nothing of his three Major championship victories. His cheerful attitude and infectious love for the game of golf is matched in fervor by few – if any. It’s one reason the 2021 Waste Management Phoenix Open Tournament Chairman Scott Jenkins had to snag an interview with the 2021 European Ryder Cup Captain. The other was to let Paddy know, in person, he would receive one of the five coveted sponsor’s exemptions to the WM Phoenix Open.
Hear from the beloved Padraig Harrington on how he approaches the fan-first atmosphere of “The People’s Open” and what the tournament means to him as he enters the twilight of what should be a hall-of-fame career.
