Harrington and Garcia

European Tour

Not sure if this is common knowledge at this stage or not, but just read this today from an interview with Harrington:

"It certainly has been difficult between me and Sergio. Things definitely got a bit tense there, but the Ryder Cup really helped. We spent the week in each others company, played a couple of practice matches together and he got to say his piece that he wanted to say all along. Some of the lads eventually drew it out of him - not least because one of the pictures in the team room was of me holing that putt at the US PGA - and he got to tell me that he really wanted to smash that putter over my head! That was what I really wanted to hear and though the Ryder Cup didn't do much for Europe, it did do a lot for me and Sergio"

Good to see Europe's top two golfers might be back on good terms.....at least until the next time Harrington pips him at the post in a major :-) !

I can see Garcia and Harrington both winning Majors next year, Garcia for his improved form and consistency and Harrington with his ability to close the deal.
Would prefer to see Garcia winning though is he has the potential to win multiple majors if he breaks his duck shortly

"To be honest, I don't believe a lot that I read about what players say in interviews."

I agree to some extent, but Harrington strikes me as someone who speaks his mind. He doesn't come up with smooth and easy answers to any of the questions posed to him like some others do.

It's a shame that they are not friends, they don't have to best friends, just friends<biggrin>

Why would Harrington bother making friends with that sore loser Garcia? The same Garcia who moaned about Harrington being favoured by thew officals at the open in 2007?

I was happy seeing Harrington deny him again. I loved it!! <laugh>
