PADRAIG HARRINGTON (IRL) ACQUIRING 26 professional victories and winning titles on the European, PGA, Japanese and Asian tours is testament to Harrington’s class and ability to perform in all conditions. Of course his most notable wins are his three major championships: the 2007 and ’08 British Opens and the 2008 PGA Championship. He’s also laid claim to being a European Tour Order of Merit winner (2006), European Tour Player of the Year (2007, 08) and PGA Tour player of the Year (2008). Approaching his 40th birthday, is Paddy’s best behind him or are we about to see his second act? GRAEME MCDOWELL (NIR) G-MAC SHOWED all his class to the golf world in 2010. He was instrumental in Europe’s Ryder Cup win over the US in Wales, he won twice on the European Tour, shared the European Tour Player of the Year award with Martin Kaymer and secured his maiden major win at the US Open at Pebble Beach. The 31-year-old is a gritty competitor and currently sits 11th in world rankings. With plenty of golfing life ahead of him he’s sure to add to his collection of silverware and awards. The question is, do you think he will do enough to become the best of this lot? RORY MCILROY (NIR) YOUNG RORY may be the least experienced of this fine group, but consider what he has already achieved in such a short career: victories on both the European and PGA tours, and an emphatic record-breaking win to claim the coveted US Open title back in June. Coming off the back of a disappointing final stretch at the Masters in April, the US Open win showed us that The Curly One has a ticker as big as his hair. At 22, his career has onoly just begun and he’s No.4 in world rankings. As they say, this lad could be anything if all goes to plan. But if my aunty had.. DARREN CLARKE (NIR) AT THE age of 42, it took Clarke until his 21st season on Tour to celebrate a major victory. Winning the British Open earlier this month was a worthy reward for the veteran of 22 professional wins, and a timely reminder that the old guard is not ready to hand over the game just yet. Wins all around the world and a five-time member of Europe’s Ryder Cup team highlight his stellar career. Clarke’s also the sixth highest career money winner on the European Tour. Is his major breakthrough enough to convince you there’s more riches in store for this much- loved old dog? OTG BIG Q THE 4 IRISHMEN WALK INTO A POLL... When all their careers have finished, will the lone Irishman or one of the three Northern Irishman have the better record to boast about over a pint? HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE STATE OF THE GAME...
