Dalgleish tells Lowry to listen to Harrington

Walker Cup skipper Colin Dalgleish is begging Shane Lowry to listen to Padraig Harrington and put his pro plans on hold.

The Scot is desperate to frighten the life of the Yanks by sending out the Irish Open champion to win back the trophy at Merion from September 12-13.

Colin Dalgleish and Rory McIlroy at the 2007 Walker Cup venue, Royal County Down,Anxiously waiting for a call from his No 1 star, Dalgleish said: "It think it would be great if he stayed for the Walker Cup. It is one thing for me to be telling Shane that but when Padraig Harrington is telling him to take his time, I agree with that 100 percent.

"I think if you are going to listen to one person in the whole game, Padraig Harrington is the guy to listen to. He has been there and done that."
