Darren Clarke has announced that he will now be taking a break from golf and is not now considering the Ryder Cup. He’s taking time to prioritise his wife and family. I know that all of our thoughts are with him and his wife Heather as she battles with cancer. Darren is auctioning his European Tour Shot of the Month trophy in aid of breast cancer research the current bid is £5500 – go on! make a bid here on his website.
I’m sure Ian Woosnam will be disapointed not to have the option of playing Darren, who is currently lying just outside the automatic qualification places for Team Europe.
