Brilliant Gift Grub welcomes Padraig Harrington's return to form

Padraig took a break from karoake celebrations to chat to Ian Dempsey about his win.

Padraig Harrington made a brilliant return to form with a play-off win at the Honda Classic in Florida yesterday.

The player rang Ian Dempsey from an American burger joint this morning to discuss his first PGA Tour win since 2008, and had an interesting theory about the collapse in his form - drawing similarities between himself and the Irish economy.

Although Ian had to make it clear that the country isn’t ready for everyone from 2008 to make a comeback.

"Bertie, I'm sorry, it's too soon."
