image for Spectator plays key part in Harrington Open victory

Padraig Harrington clinched the British Golf Open in dramatic form on Sunday yet failed to thank the spectator who played a major role in the victory.

Ken Banks followed Padraig round the course over the three day tournament and has been left feeling dejected at the lack of credit given to him.

'Every time his club hit the ball I would shout 'get in the hole' as loud as I could and before any else. Eventually the ball would go in the hole and that is why Padraig won. He got the ball in the hole in less shots than his competitors and it was all thanks to me. I can't believe he never mentioned me in his speech.'

Padraig put his win down to hard work and concentration and denied the help he had from Mr Banks contributed to his win.

'He's a feckin eejit' said Mr Harrington.
