Padraig Harrington May Be Poor(er)
By Kickntrue on 8/3/10
Golfer Padraig Harrington may have lost up to $5,000,000 in an investment to a company where is brother works. Thanksgiving should be fun!
Golf champion Padraig Harrington has lost around €4m in a failed investment in a UK technology firm, according to a recently filed court document seen by the Sunday Independent.My initial reaction to reading this was, "Padraig Harrington still golfs?!" Anyway... losing $5,000,000 when you start with $22,000,000 (I'm doing present day conversion rates) leaves you with $17,000,000 (yah for 3rd grade math!). That's still a lot of dough. But it still has to be brutal. The whole family dynamic makes it even crazier. It's one thing to watch your stock investments plummet with the market but to have such a large stake with your brother's assurance has to be awkward to say the least.
Eh- beats screwing around on your wife and losing $400,000,000.

Um,,, never mix family and business EVER. Unless you have to.
Who drew the boobs in that picture? Sweet, we could use more of that on oob.

Then we run the risk of the site name evolving to "boobgolf"
Is this thing on?
slight chuckle @ kurt... i think you should have titled the article: Padraig Harrington May Be Less Rich. To use the word poor when you are talking millions $$$ makes me want to smack you.
@banker- good point.. but if i change it now you're comment won't make sense.
PH still plays golf?
