....somebody moved Darren Clarke´s marker overnight and put it into a better position in the fairway. Clarke calls the ref over this morning, the ref says that you can play it from where it lies, Clarke decides not to and chips it back to its original position overnight and continues the hole, taking a bogey.
Great sporting behaviour and proud to be a golfer.
At the moment he's sharing the lead with Casey and Bjorn going up the last.

Go on Dazza!!

I'd love it, love it if he beats Paul 'having fun out there' Casey and Thomas 'supporting The Tour' Bjorn.

...wouldn't it have been great if his playing parners had both chipped one sideways and evened the score?

Dont know about you but I enjoyed having a bit of golf to follow on Monday morning.They should do it every week -top 10 playoff or something.Im guessing that they only did it this week because Wentworth doesnt start proper until friday and they all need to get home to do their washing.

In this case, rather more important than kicking the ball out of play in footie when a player looks as though he's injured only to see him trotting back to his position often even before the ball is thrown back!

I think what actully happened was that he drove his ball into the rough last night to a position where he could not have reached the green in two.
When he reached his ball this morning it was clear it had been moved to a lie wherby he could have hit the green in two.
The rules state that he had to play it as it lay and therefore he laid up short of the green to where he thought he might have shifted it from it's original lie.
Regardless of what happened it's a class act from a class man.

Fancy an Arsenal fan saying this after the moans at the Tottenham game ;)

Clarkes gesture in doing this was totally phenomenal
Good on him-I doubt very much whether I would have done it in his position-after all the rules often work against people so on the rare occasion when they are in your favour, why not abide by them;)
His mindset clearly is a bit disturbed at the moment(naturally) and you have to wonder if this was just part of his couldn't-care-less-approach to golf which if what we read is how he approaches the game currently
I hope he makes the ryder cup team altho' given his wifes state of health there is every conceivable chance he may have to pull out if she deteriorates or gets a setback

It is indeed. Top top bloke. I wonder how many of the other 'European heroes' would have done that? Broadhurst?? Ferrie??? Monty??? Seve????!!! I don't think so.

Super, super Daz,
Super, super Daz,
Super, super Daz,
Super Da-az Sampson.


Err, I mean 'Super Darren Cla-arke'.

Yeah a great show of sportsmanship from Darren, was really gutted that he didn't win. Another one to add to his 'should have won' collection - it seems he is nearly always in contention but rarely closes the deal. As someone said earlier, this could be because of his couldn't care less attitude at the moment, but I just wish he could turn some of his great play into a few wins.
