Meet Darren

The finest moment of his distinguished career came when he triumphed at the 140th Open Championship. That highlight came fiv e years after he inspired Europe to an emotionally charged Ryder Cup win over the United States at the K Club, having been picked as a wild card.

 

Is widely regarded as a Ryder Cup legend having won the tournament four times as a player, and twice as a vice-captain. Also became the first Northern Irishman to captain a Ryder Cup side in 2016.

 

A dedicated worker for charity, he organised a special Pro-Am at Portmarnock in September 1998 in aid of the victims of the Omagh bombing tragedy and set up the Darren Clarke Foundation, which helps develop junior golf in Ireland, and raises money for Breast Cancer Awareness. Was made an Honorary Member of the European Tour in 2011, the same year he was awarded an OBE.
