Paddy loves Liberty National
Friday, August 28, 2009
JERSEY CITY, N.J. – And in defense of Liberty National, Mr. Padraig Harrington. State your opinion, sir:
“A phenomenal golf course.”
Silence. Stares. General disbelief, because most of the week has been spent securing terribly negative comments about this wind-swept course that is hosting The Barclays. But even with morning wind and rain and a round of 75 under his belt, the Irishman was effusive with his praise.
“I think this is good enough for a major. This is a major golf course we are playing here. This is a superb test, really puts us right on the limit. This is exactly what we should be playing.”
Certainly, if reports are correct and players have been asked by PGA Tour officials to tone down their negative comments about Liberty National, Harrington can consider himself exempt.
Instead, they’d encourage him to talk on.
