Padraig Harrington by Golffile
In a selfless gesture, Pádraig Harrington has announced that he will match the sum of money raised by golf clubs around Ireland from their weekend competitions for GOAL’s Ukraine emergency appeal.
Golf clubs across the country have pledged to donate their weekend competition fees to the emergency appeal run by the Irish sports charity and Harrington has vowed to match that sum this weekend in his donation.
The three-time major champion has also called on more golf clubs to join the appeal over the weekend to fundraise for GOAL.
“We have 300+ golf courses in Ireland and some of them are donating their weekend competition fees to GOALs Ukraine emergency appeal.
“I’ll match that sum this weekend. Hopefully more courses will come on board and fundraise for GOAL, our Irish sports charity.”
