"But I don't put myself under the same pressure, I don't worry about it so much".
'It does make my job easier that I feel I have the confidence of the players, ' Harrington added.
"The second thing is the golf course that we're playing on is a European style golf course, it's a golf course that really suits the European style".
"But I also played under Bernhard Langer, who was like a school teacher". I think Padraig will be blessed with an even better team.
