Woods and Harrington Press Conferences

Posted Friday, August 14th, 2009 02:14 am GMT -5 in Golf

Shortly after lunch, I decided to stop in the interview room. The space wasn’t very crowded, but it seemed like people were waiting for something to happen. I picked a seat in the second row and was treated to back-to-back press conferences with Thursday’s leaders, Tiger Woods and Padraig Harrington.

Tiger has taken some flack for his on-course temper getting the best of him (which he admits), but I was really impressed with the way he spoke to the media. Harrington also mentioned that later – he loves playing with Tiger because he is such a gentleman. That really came across while I sat there listening. Funny and sharp, too.

As for Harrington, I could listen to him talk all day long. His stories made me think of Minnesota’s golfing Irishman, Gerald McCullagh. I wonder if those two have ever met – wouldn’t that be a fun conversation!
