More Harrington on Woods: "I just assumed he was playing video games!"

Pádraig Harrington expects Tiger Woods to return to action quite soon but he insisted that he did not have sympathy for the beleaguered world No 1.

Speaking to Ryan Tubridy on the Late Late Show on Friday night, Harrington said: "No. I don't have sympathy. You choose your own path."

Asked if he liked Woods, Harrington said that the pair considered each other friends, but added: "You don't get to know Tiger Woods. He's defensive. He's always been somebody who keeps himself to himself. He would very rarely be in the locker room and very rarely be mixing ... 

"Everybody wants something from him. If (Woods) comes into the locker room, players are asking for autographs. So you just don't see much of Tiger Woods....

"I used to think he would go back to his hotel room very early and leave the golf course early. I just assumed he was playing video games! I thought his life was quite boring."

He added: "I expect him back sooner rather than later."
