Obsessed: Inside Padraig Harrington’s Head

“Padraig Harrington never wanted to settle for anything less than absolute perfection. Even after winning three majors in a little over 12 months (The Open Championship in 2007 and ’08, and the US PGA in’ 08), and becoming the heir-apparent to World No.1 Tigers Woods, the Dubliner decided that his game was not good enough.

Over the last four years, Harrington has risked everything he had spent a lifetime achieving in a painful and agonising search to be more than just a champion. He reexamined every inch of his game, he said goodbye to his brilliant old Scottish coach Bob Torrance, and he walked the fairways of the greatest golf courses in the world like a man well and truly lost.

Obsessed is the story, told through the eyes of his friends and opponents of Padraig Harrington’s amazing quest to be more than just one of the world’s greatest golfers of the modern era.”
