Padraig Harrington reacts to the possibility of LIV Golfers to play in the Ryder Cup

The Ryder Cup is a competition that attracts a lot of attention from golf fans from Europe and the US. This is the moment when the best from both areas want to win. Such matches bring special excitement and adrenaline. Padraig Harrington is one of the golfers who could play in this year's Ryder Cup, although he is not too optimistic that it will happen.

It was Harrington who spoke to the media about the Ryder Cup, as well as the possibility of LIV Golfers playing there. Harrington has nothing against that. "I have no problem with them coming back as players or captains," Harrington said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com "They have to meet the criteria at that particular time, so clearly if you want to be a player you are going to have to play x amount of events, but I certainly wouldn't stop anyone becoming a captain, or I wouldn't stop anyone being a player."

Padraig Harrington comments on PGA vs LIV

The world of golf has experienced great changes in the last year.

The heads and leaders of the Tour and other organizations want golf to become more and more popular and are ready to make many changes in order to achieve their goal. Padraig is a golfer who believes the excitement factor must be there.

Watching the same players on the same Tour week after week is not what Harrington really likes. "I think there is enough room in world golf for at least two big tours," he continued. "I have no problem with big tournaments going on on the same week around the world.

I don't think the best players should play together every week, I think it gets quite boring when the same names turn up every week. I think it is quite exciting when you have good players turning up in Europe like we did back in the day.

You had good European players playing in Europe and good players playing in the States. Then they would come together at a major or a big event and it created a bit of a buzz."
