No Choke
« on: May 21, 2007, 08:10:15 AM »

Gotta hand it to Padraig Harrington.  He's a top-of-the-world class player with a probably deserved reputation as a choker.  He tried his best on Sunday but managed to hold on for the Irish Open win.  That country is sport mad and the pressure, overt or not, had to be tremendous. 

He said that this was a "fifth major" for an Irishman.  I can see that.  It's a huge, huge win for a homegrown player.  Much bigger than the stature of the tournament itself.

He did try to choke it out, but when the pressure was on he came through. I forget the chap he was playin' but did you see the horrid lie he had for his shot to the green on the final hole.

Hey Isk, is your accent like Padraigs and Paul McGinleys? I love that very Irish accent they have!

Bradley Dredge.  Leeks and daffodils uber alles.

He did have a terrible lie but it was completely his fault.  Right off the tee and tried to get too perfect with the layup.  Harrington damn near did the same thing though.  They both looked like hackers on the playoff hole.

No, I'm fairly well Americanized at this point.  I never did have an Irish accent (much).  I was born and raised in England although I spent a big part of my summers in Ireland and my Mum had (has) an Irish accent so it was in the house.  I still slip fairly often and especially when I've had a few drinks.  It's a bit of an American/English/Irish hybrid (perhaps mongrel is a more apt term).  For some reason, people on the golf course pick it up although they guess anywhere from Australian to Enzed to Irish to English.

Kids are cruel bastards when you speak funny not to mention I was small, jumped up a grade and dressed funny.  I used to practice American in the mirror at home.

Mine wouldn't be near as eloquent as those guys' Dublin accents anyway.  I come from a long line of a Carlow/Wexford bogtrotters.  My wife and kids still can't understand half of what my family says and all of what half my family says.   Wink
