Any lingering thoughts Caroline Harrington had of getting her husband back when he’s of pensionable age have been dashed today with the news that Padraig’s New Year’s Resolution is to play until he’s 70.
Artists Impression: Harrington at 70
The wacky three time Major Champion ‘sang’ his Resolution yesterday to a reporter in the style of Annie Carnes from the musical Oklahoma.
“I'm not a guy who can just say no. (I'm in a terrible fix) You are retired for a long time and I tell you what, I'll still be playing competitive golf when I'm 70,” crooned Harrington, who also intends to sing all of his answers this season to Rogers and Hammerstein big production numbers.
Stat lover Padraig is heading for two in row in the resolution achievement stakes having ticked off last years goal of ‘winning again’ by beating the entire field at the Grand Slam of Golf. The Dubliner however will have to wait another 29 years to even find out if he can achieve this year’s resolution as it involves staying alive until then.
Authorities are currently checking whether it’s allowed to have a ‘29 Year Away’ New Year’s Resolution. If found that it is actually not allowed by law, Harrington will be pressed for another New Year’s Resolution today.
