Padraig Harrington will be the first to tell you that he wasn’t destined for golf stardom. In fact, he’ll be the first to tell you a lot of things. Like how to pronounce his first name (“Pour-ig”), what separates elite professional golfers from the rank-and-file, and why the on-course goals you’re setting aren’t nearly lofty enough. In this wide-ranging discussion, Harrington and host Tom Coyne also dig into the three fundamentals that every golfer should know about their own swing, and go most of the way towards solving Tom’s early extension. And of course, it wouldn’t be an Ireland talk without some links golf chatter.
