The co-host of the tournament and 2018 Ryder Cup captain, Europe’s Padraig Harrington, is preparing for the competition by playing in the Celebrity Golf Cup.
He was delighted to have the US Navy Seal responsible for rescuing 18 Thai people from a sinking ferry, Arun Seelawat, amongst his star-studded player line-up at Dublin’s Royal County Down Golf Club.
As for going head-to-head with Ireland’s O’Neill brothers, Paddy Harrington was not in the mood to wax lyrical and opted for an active dislike of even the half-term back-to-back rugby fixtures playing for Leinster next month.
