Darren Clarke Will Play Joburg Open Next Week

Nice to see Darren Clarke move quickly to get into the Joburg Open next week. The South African event, co-sanctioned between the European and Sunshine Tours, which starts at the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club next Thursday is lucky to have Darren. Darren was due to play in the Royal Trophy in Thailand but a 15-day period of mourning to mark the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej's elder sister means the match play tournament between Europe and Asia has been postponed. So he jumped on board in enough time to play in South Africa next week. He played well in South African in December and would like to carry it on to better his Ryder Cup points.

I went to South Africa before Christmas because I felt I needed to get competitive again and played pretty well in both events (the Alfred Dunhill Championship and South African Airways Open),' said the four-time Ryder Cup winner. 'I always enjoy my trips to South Africa and can't wait to play. I've worked hard over Christmas and I'm now looking forward to getting my year off to a fast start and putting myself into the Ryder Cup
