Correct Erik. It's soft but it's there and reveals a relationship with the more common "Paddy", which is of course different (from Patrick).

dat's da t'ing with the Irish accent, something to do with the soft rain that falls so much of the time ........

Nice to know literally anything can be debated here.

Padraig is the anglicised version of 'Pauric', which was the original Irish name.As such, 90% of people with the name 'Padraig' pronounce it 'Paw-rig'.

I have a feeling Padraig pronounced it that way before he started playing in the states and never bothered correcting people in interviews.Or something like that..


Edit : I just read a quote from after he won the Open saying that his mother always called him 'Pad-rig' so he kept using it.

He would have to be awkward.. I'll have to change my sig now

Phew! Just got my breath back from the Accenture final round. It got really exciting when Casey started coming back and they both dodged a few bullets. Poults played really well all week and his play today was as close to nerveless as you're likely to see - which is, not totally nerve-free...
Feel sorry for Casey though - he played great pretty much all week (except for yesterday during the rain) and was definitely the pick of the field for the first four rounds - all those 5&4s were exceptional.
Both of them looked like champions, imho. Hope they go on to win more this year - and it would be great to see Casey get his revenge by winning a Major!

Yeah, but Poulter's monkey on the back was not winning in America, Casey has. In so many ways, this was just as good for Casey as it was for Poulter. Casey can now back up his #3 world ranking and say it wasn't just a fluke, Poulter can now back up his resume with a U.S. PGA Tour win.

Poulter still hasn't won a stroke-play event in the U.S.

He has yet to win an event while wearing purple, as well, but I expect all these things will come to pass!

Really enjoyed the final, great to see to English guys in the final and despite it not being a stroke play event Poulter has still got that win in America, in one of the bigger events as well!.

On another note, the official top 10 world rankings looks pretty good for England and Europe with 3 English in the top ten, two Irish and a German.

I would almost declare this to be harder to win. One bad round and you're out. In a stroke play event, you can come back and shoot a low score, there's not nearly as much pressure. In this event, it's lights out to those who lose. Just look at the guys who've won this thing.

LOL.

Not for me to say, as I'm not a True Brit - only one by upbringing/education. I'm really a Yank so I shouldn't respond, and I'm curious as to what the TB's say ...

Personally I do like the guy from the rag trade in Stevenage more and more. At least we have a good explanation for his sartorial inclinations. He's expressive and he's got an amazing iron/short game. What's not to like ........ ?

[If only British eccentricity could be included in their GDP somehow ....]
