Pádraig Harrington has rules tips for the deaf

We were lucky enough to meet up with some of Ireland's top deaf golfers for a Golf Digest Ireland feature last month. No doubt the boys would be interested to see that Pádraig Harrington's talents have been put to good use by the R&A, who have produced a ten-minute 'Quick Guide to the Rules of Golf' signed by deaf interpreter Nicholas Padden.
