Padraig Harrington expects to win more majors before he’s finished but right now it’s Graeme McDowell who’s cashing on his status as a grand slam title winner.
While Harrington recently failed to secure an extension of his reputed $10m, three-year deal with FTI Consulting, 2010 US Open winner McDowell has added EA Sports and drinks giants Guinness to his list of supporters.
Despite a poor 2011, the Portrush man has joined stablemate Rory McIlroy in the gaming world as a player on “Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13” and even tweeted a picture of himself in kitted out in the high-tech spandex suit that players must wear when their swings are captured in digital format.
Drinks giants Guinness - who already support The G-Mac Foundation - appear well-placed to become his next major sponsor, according to our sources. The Ulster world No 13 did a photo shoot for the company at his Lake Nona base in Florida yesterday.
