In recent years we have seen Padraig Harrington show off his kicking skills on the famous 16th hole at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Even into his 40s he still has a solid right peg.
Well new footage has emerged of a memorable game in Croke Park during Harrington’s schoolboy years and it’s a classic.
Na Fianna GAA club posted footage of an old Dublin Colleges’ final between St Vincent’s and Colaiste Eanna with Harrington coming up against Dublin legend Dessie Farrell.
After scoring a few points for Colaiste Eanna, the three-time Major winner managed to take down the Croke Park crossbar with a 45 !!
Harrington’s effort was enough to rattle the crossbar sufficiently so that it fell.
Harrington and Dessie Farrell have had a good old twitter discussion today about this rare moment being relocated after so many years.
