Ryder Cup Stars To Play In Indonesia

Paul McGinley and Darren Clarke will headline the Indonesia Open, this week at the Cengkareng Golf Club in Jakarta, Indonesia. Alot of big names on the European Tour are in the States playing this week so that leaves a few Ryder Cup points up for grabs.

Clarke will look to rebound after a missed cut in Dubai, then closed 79-82 last week in the Indian Masters to finish 63rd. Clarke will hope to turn things around as he makes his first start at this event.

"It was a long time ago that I was this enthusiastic," Clarke was quoted on the European Tour's website. "I've always been keen, but now I am working harder than I have ever worked and spending more time on my game than I have ever done."

Mikko Ilonen won last year by a single stroke over three players.

This event is co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour.

The Golf Channel will broadcast action of all four days starting at 7:30 a.m. (et).
