The PGA Championship is this year’s final major and without the presence of a dominant player in the field, the player with the best fortune during the week will be the most likely winner.
It took Darren Clarke twenty tries to finally raise the Claret Jug. He takes great pride in the fashion in which he finally got there.
Ten years after he last contended in a major, no longer in the top 100 in the world, Darren Clarke delivered his defining moment Sunday in the British Open when he held off brief challenges from Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson to win golf’s oldest championship.
Darren Clarke was among the top golfers in the world just a couple of years ago. After a personal tragedy he has bounced back and now in contention to win the The Open Championship.
Darren Clarke shot his second straight 2-under 68 on Friday, taking a lead role heading to the weekend at the British Open.
