Darren Clarke has confirmed that he would like to play in the Ryder Cup and would like to be considered for one of the two wildcard picks.
Amid lots of media speculation that Woosnam has offered Darren one of the places on the team, Darren’s management team have now confirmed his interest in playing. In the aftermath of his wife Heather’s tragic death everyone wondered whether he would need more time to be with his family, but clearly Clarke feels that it’s best to get back out there and start playing again. He has a great Ryder Cup record having been on three winning Ryder Cup teams in four appearances.
Woosnam will announce his two wildcard picks on Sunday evening once he knows the exact composition of the automatic qualifiers (three positions are still to be filled at the BMW open). He’s playing his cards very close to his chest and refuses to confirm who he may pick or whether Darren Clarke is one of the picks.
