Padraig Harrington thoroughly enjoyed Movember and the reaction he got to his Fu Manchu moustache.
“I was going for the most outrageous look I could get to bring attention to a good cause,” Harrington said before the 25th anniversary Bank of Ireland Excellence in Sport Awards at Dublin’s Burlington Hotel on Monday.
“Some people told me it suited me. One person told me it made me look Irish! I was called Pedro. I was asked where’s my mule? I was told I looked like a 70’s porn star.”
He was clean shaven when he turned up on Monday night but revealed: “I had a full beard today, you could only see my eyes I had so much hair.”
