Irish Sports News Discussion:     Padraig Harrington wins Open

Padraig Harrington has won the British Open Golf Championship. The President and the Taoiseach have sent their congratulations to Irish golfers success, the first by a European for eight years.
Padraig Harrington beat Spain's Sergio Garcia in a four-hole playoff at Carnoustie in Scotland to land his maiden victory in a major.
Padraig Harrington aged 35, completed the extra holes in 15 shots (level-par) after the two Ryder Cup colleagues had finished the championship locked together on seven-under 277 following an incident-packed day of high drama on the east coast of Scotland.
Garcia, who had led the championship from day one, returned a closing two-over 73 while Harrington had a four-under 67.
He becomes the first Irishman to win a major since Fred Daly won at Hoylake in 1947.
The Taoiseach said: 'This is an incredible personal achievement and I am delighted for him and his family as I know how close he has come to winning a Major on a number of previous occasions.
'I know of Padraig's dedication on the practice ground and single-minded determination to improve his golf.'
After his victory Harrington said: 'I have come a long way. When I turned pro I would have settled for becoming a journeyman.
'It's been great to be named as someone who could win a major but that brings its own pressure. To actually go and do it, well I don't know what to think.'
