Padraig Harrington wins British Open...

What an exciting finish! I watched the final holes of the British Open at an Irish Pub in downtown Boston. I was delighted to see a fellow-Irishman win...though I would also have been happy to see Sergio Garcia win. A pity one of them had to loose.

I hope readers will not see these comments as a form of gloating! It's just extra special when we win on British turf.


Just talked to a niece in Dublin and she tells me that more than a few pints of Guinness were downed tonight in celebration of Padraig Harrington's victory. The Irish get very patriotic about their sports heroes.
