Padraig Harrington - Open Champion

Well done to Padraig Harrington who won the Open at Carnoustie yesterday.

He beat Sergio Garcia to win the tournament and become the first European to win a major in eight years and the first Irish winner of the Open since Fred Daly 60 years ago.

I like Padraig I have to say. He is always polite and humble, speaks well of others and win's and lose's in a very gracious fashion.

Well done fella...ya made the country proud.

Also a small word for young Irish golfer Rory McIlroy for Hollywood Co. Down who won the best amateur award at the open.

The future of Irish golf looks good...
