Padraig plays this week at the PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is a previous winner of the event back in 2008 and memorably finished tied 4th last year with fellow countryman, Shane Lowry. The defending champion, Phil Mickelson, does not play this week but the field is one of the strongest to tee it up all year. The course is a gem, and will test the players with length and clever bunkering around the greens. The run-offs ensure a variety of short game shots and the winner will have navigated some really tricky greens. Finally, a creek meanders its way throughout the property and comes into play on multiple holes. This is not a course for the faint hearted!
Tee Times – Padraig tees off Thursday at 8.06am and Friday at 1.31pm with Jason Dufner and Stewart Cink.
