They're not laughing any more at Paddy
Harrington believes he can win the Masters and no sane person would doubt him, writes Declan Lynch
Paddy can win the Masters next week. Padraig Harrington - he is known to Tiger Woods simply as "Paddy" - has done so many strange things in his wonderful career, he can probably even do this.
And according to Paddy, Tiger Woods himself can do it too. He put forward this theory during an interview last week in which he recalled that his own victory at the Honda Classic had perhaps been inspired by the sight of Retief Goosen, a player of his generation who was thought to be in decline, getting himself into contention at a recent PGA tour event.
He then asked us to consider the possibility that Tiger had seen "Paddy" somehow re-emerging from the golfing void, and that he might take heart from this.
