Harrington desperate for US Open success

on December 11, 2008 by Administrator

The Irish golfing legend, Padraig Harrington, has spoken of his ambition to win the US Masters next year. The tournament will be held in April and the golfer, who has won both the Open and the USPGA during an extremely successful year, has announced that he is going to alter his game slightly in order for his title bid to be as strong as possible.

These alterations will primarily be made to his swing, but he says he also has “some serious gym work to do” over the coming months.

Fans of Harrington, who is thirty-seven years of age, may be surprised that the successful Irishman has been so outspoken about needing to make changes to his game. However, the golfer explained that as soon as he thinks his game can no longer be improved, he will make the tough decision to retire from the sport.

Such a decision would be an extremely shocking one, particularly given the recent form of Harrington. He successfully defended his Open title earlier this year and followed this impressive victory with a USPGA win.

Harrington was the first European player to be awarded with the USPGA for over seventy years. He was handed the European Tour Golfer of the Year award for the second year in a row in recognition of these two achievements.

Nobody had any cause for complaint with regards to this award, despite serious competition from Robert Karlsson. The Swede humbly announced that “there is no doubt that Padraig is Golfer of the Year”.
