It's been more than 20 years since his professional debut, but Irishman Padraig Harrington says he is just as enthusiastic about the game as ever, according to a UK Yahoo Sports report.
"I have conversations with a lot of sports people and if I talk to a soccer player and he tells me he's 32 and he's retiring I scream at him," the triple major champion said.
"Whether I scream at himself physically or I'm screaming inside my head, I'm saying 'Don't do it!'
"I'm not a guy who can just say no. You are retired for a long time and I tell you what, I'll still be playing competitive golf when I'm 70."
"Over the last five weeks you'd be hard pressed to find somebody who's done more time, more practice, more anything on their game than I have," he said.Photo: Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images
"If anything I'm still trying to keep a balance on things. I might be doing too much practice, thinking about golf too much, playing too many tournaments.
