Fresh from his recent victory at the Tour España Masters in Madrid, Pádraig Harrington returns to Dublin for the opening of Ireland's largest golf academy at the Spawell Driving Range.

During a golf clinic at the academy launch Pádraig Harrington offered some practical tips to help amateurs improve their game. 

One of the common things I hear people told on the golf course is keep your head down. Worst piece of advice you could ever get.

The new academy has 60 driving range bays and will be overseen by three golf professionals, Jimmy Hegarty, Jane Leavy and Zak Roullier. 

Reporter Eamonn Falvey avails of the opportunity to get a lesson from Harrington in this RTÉ News report, broadcast on 1 December 2000.
