A class act

Golf Monthly - - Your View -

It was great to see Padraig Har­ring­ton win again at the Por­tu­gal Masters. The Ir­ish­man has al­ways been one of my favourite golfers and I hope he can one day be­come a suc­cess­ful Euro­pean Ry­der Cup cap­tain. Af­ter win­ning his Ma­jors, he could have been forgiven for tak­ing his foot off the gas. How­ever, to win a pres­ti­gious Euro­pean Tour event at the age of 45 shows you how hard he must be work­ing be­hind the scenes.

He’s a class act on and off the course and should be con­sid­ered one of golf’s great role mod­els. I must add he’s a great per­son to fol­low on so­cial media as well! Could he make the 2018 Ry­der Cup team he’s been linked with cap­tain­ing? I wouldn’t rule it out. Steve Man­ley, Glam­or­gan
