Harrington's humourous gift; 4th July party at Rickie's

Harrington

Welcome to this week’s Social Eyes. Now, can you remember a bizarre injury involving Padraig Harrington a few weeks back?

The Irishman feared his ‘career was over’ after an amateur accidentally struck him on the elbow during a clinic ahead of the FedEx St Jude Classic.

He was forced to withdraw from the tournament and spent two weeks on the sidelines and, ahead of the Irish Open, he received a special gift from the amateur in question.

On Tuesday, July 4, PGA Tour players and their WAGs celebrated Independence Day in style. Here are a few pics from what looked like a gathering at Rickie Fowler's Jupiter mansion and more:

Bubba also had a good time at the player and caddie party ahead of the Greenbrier Classic – with his favourite part visiting the balloon artist.
