Since becoming a Special Olympics Global Ambassador in May 2010, Padraig
has generously donated his time and expertise to the Special Olympics
Movement across the world by conducting golf clinics for athletes and
coaches, most recently at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
Padraig also proudly ‘Wears the Laces’ for Special Olympics on the
golfing circuit. The red shoe laces have recently captured the attention
of golf commentators and fans, helping to raise awareness for Special
Olympics and promote a message of respect, inclusion and acceptance for
all people with intellectual disabilities. Padraig will again ‘Wear the
Laces’ this week during the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.
