Darren Clarke Wants to Play

Darren Clarke

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.

    I hope the big fella plays, so you won’t have any excuses when we win the Cup back on the last hole of the last match !

    That’s funny Mike!

    I hear you giving away a free book to help the US team break their losing streak!

    Darren Clarke will make his return to action at the Madrid Masters (Sept 14-17) a week before the Ryder Cup after taking a seven-week break because of his wife’s death through cancer. He has thanked the public for overwhelming their kindness on his bereavement on his website. http://www.darrenclarke.com
