Darren Clarke


Q. A flawless round of golf until missing that tiddler on the last, what was that, a lapse in concentration?

DARREN CLARKE: Yes I was too busy watching the big screen over there watching the rugby and I just completely went blank.

Q. Yesterday you had nothing positive to say, today you went out and played like that - how?

DARREN CLARKE: I have no idea really. I was on the range this morning and I turned to an old drill and I have been working hard with Pete and Ewen Murray came over and gave me a couple of suggestions as well and I just managed to get it on the clubface all day.

Q. Very well by the look of it?

DARREN CLARKE: Yes I just can't explain it. I have played so badly now for a week or so and today I have gone out and played like that and shot a pretty decent score.

Q. The cream is rising to the top, is that testament to the severity of the test?

DARREN CLARKE: I think so. The course is in great shape but it is just very tough with the conditions we have had for the first three days it is a big challenge as you can see from the scoring, there is nobody really running away with it. It is shaping up for a good day tomorrow.

Q. You came with no expectations, what now?

DARREN CLARKE: I am going to go out and play and hopefully get it in the clubface like I did today and not miss too many of those like I did on the last.

Q. What would it mean to you to win the Irish Open?

DARREN CLARKE: It would be great, this has been a tournament I have wanted to win for a long time but we are still a long way from that, hopefully I can answer that question tomorrow.

Q. Good crowd following you again today, does that help?

DARREN CLARKE: Most definitely, there were a lot of people out there watching myself and Padraig in the game in front so there was a lot of golf for the Irish people to watch.
