Bizarre files for Dubliner at the Northern Trust Open

Harrington realises mid-round he’s wearing someone else’s right shoe

Pádraig Harrington has been accused of being as odd as two left feet but he’s never boring, even when he’s sitting deep in the pack wearing another man’s shoe. Hat tip to Associated Press golf writer Doug Ferguson, who gleaned this nugget of information from the Dubliner after Friday’s second round of the Northern Trust Open 

According to Ferguson’s regular notes column:

“Padraig Harrington realised during the round he was wearing someone else’s right shoe...

“He shot a 70 in white, classic-style Foot-Joys. They looked the same. They fit the same. But only when he went to clean off the sole and noticed a different set of spikes did Harrington realise the right shoe was different from the left.”

Of course, it’s now nearly nine years since Harrington was informed by European Tour referee John Paramor that he could take one of his shoes off for putting if he so wished.

‘As long as he does not delay play by taking his shoe off, and as long as he does not stand on it, he is free to putt with one shoe off.”

They say you should never judge a man unless you have walked a mile in his shoes. In this case, Harrington has all the angles covered.
