Padraig Harrington reveals he has received an offer from LIV Golf!

Padraig Harrington is certainly one of the more interesting personalities on the golf scene. During an interview on The Late Late Show, Harrington talked about LIV Golf and his view of the entire project. LIV Golf managed to attract a large number of golfers to its side.

However, there are many who did not want to have any contact with LIV Golf and remained loyal to the PGA Tour. Harrington was also in 'sweet pain' after receiving an offer from LIV Golf. However, he did not want to accept the offer.

"I got a text message but I didn't want the temptation. If somebody comes around and offers you a hundred million, five hundred million, that's a lot of temptation. It's a lot of temptation and I didn't want it. Sometimes you just don't need it",- Harrington said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com

Padraig Harrington comments on LIV Golf and its players

LIV Golf wants to create a new atmosphere and make an evolution in the world of golf.

It must be admitted that they are doing it well, but there are still many who are against this competition supported by Saudi Arabia. "I'm not going, but I've lots of friends who went and they're still my friends. I can see why people would go and I can see the good of it in terms of inclusion if things change.

Some of the guys have gone for free, but there's a lot of prize money. Whether they should go or not is up to the individuals - some of the guys who've gone wouldn't have been in good financial situations." With new times, you have to become 'new' and adapt.

Saudi Arabia is aware that they are under great pressure and that they seem
to be slowly changing the system within the country. Harrington also recognized this. "I wouldn't want to live in Saudi Arabia as it is now, but I do believe inclusion changes things.

The more international inclusion of Saudi Arabia, the more the people will go, 'you know what - we want to change things.' It's not that long ago here we used to put pregnant women in mother and baby homes. 1996 was when the last of them closed so we're not that far away from it."
