Padraig Harrington goes Happy Gilmore at long drive contesst

The PGA Championship held its annual Long Drive Competition yesterday at Valhalla in Louisville. Some guys take the competition a little more seriously than others – the top-three finishers receive $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000 in charity donations, respectively – but it tends to be pretty entertaining for fans regardless. Padraig Harrington did his best to entertain the crowd...

Padraig Harrington Autographs Tighty Whities

Or how many times have we seen tee shots go into the trees? Well, Padraig Harrington had probably the worst luck ever as he hit a shot from the fairway on hole 11 at the HP Byron Nelson Championship that...

Harrington switches to the belly putter

Padraig Harrington thinks the belly putter is good for his game, even though he thinks it's bad for the game of golf.

Harrington turns in a record start

Padraig Harrington has lost track of how many times he has set the course record. Most of them were when he was just starting out his career, young enough to see opportunity instead of the risk of failure. ''When I was a young pro and naive and innocent, I used to go out there and shoot more course records than now as a seasoned pro with a lot of fear and damage in my system...
