Life is a lot easier when you play badly and then all of a sudden you get in contention and win one. No one gets on your back. When you finish runner-up seven times, everyone is asking, 'Why aren't you winning?' It's much more fun when you jump into a win out of the blue. It's a much tougher game when you play consistently well.

Help This Worthy Cause

Entry Date:

Shortly after Christmas in 2011, 35 year old Gerard Byrne, a cousin of my wife Caroline, went to the supermarket, skidded on black ice and crashed into a field near Monasterevin, taking one hour to cut him free. He is now paralysed from the waist down, has been told he will never walk again and has a wife and three children under 3 years old to support.

Gerard will need a lot of assistance in his life – a wheelchair enabled car and renovations to his home, amongst other things - so I am looking to raise funds for him through the Padraig Harrington Charitable Foundation, which was established a few years ago to provide financial assistance to deserving beneficiaries throughout Ireland and the rest of the world.

One avenue is to offer available branding space on my clothing/equipment during the Shell Houston Open, The Masters and the RBC Heritage tournaments in late March/early April, all of which will generate much publicity and exposure around the world.

Available positions include:

  1. Front of the headwear
  2. Chest of clothing
  3. Collar of clothing
  4. Sleeve of clothing
