He's put his foot in it again by saying that they should have strippers lining the fairways at the Reno-Tahoe. http://www.irishgolfdesk.com/news-files/2012/8/2/padraig-maybe-we-should-have-a-few-dancing-girls-down-the-si.html

I don't think anyone takes notice of his ramblings any more, but does he still have something to offer as a competitive golfer?

He seems to have been competing well recently, as for his comments a bit ridicukous.

Renoe is a toilet so it would certainly improve the place.

All good stuff, good for him for having a little bit of fun.
So many of the golfers are so po-faced when giving their monosyllabic interviews - St.Padraig must be a sponsor's dream.
I watched him earlier this year and he was extremely popular with the crowds, and very good at acknowledging them.

s_r: Reno may be a toilet but nothing bog-like about Lake Tahoe, or the neighbouring mountains for that matter. Lake is lovely, mountain views breathtaking.

Paudie is arguably the most popular Irish golfer, they love him in the US a long way away from the days when they called him Pa-Drag.

I remember hearing a story that a signed jersey from New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (3 time Super Bowl winner) and a signed Shirt and cap from Pádraig were up for auction for a charity. Harrington's went for more!

Great comment from Paddy. And he is right. Too many tournaments are same-same.

They should have him in an episode of Reno 911 as himself, he'd be the funniest character.

Maybe - if the auction was in in Ireland. If it was in the USA, there's no chance that story is right.

I see no foot in mouth in that article at all. I see an open and refreshingly light-hearted interview with someone who wants to be interviewed rather than quote a pre-prepared and safe set of answers.

I liked his "Wheel barrows" of cash comments - very tongue in cheek and funny.
