Clarke 'pride' at Open announcement

Darren Clarke talks of his pride after The Royal and Ancient announces that Royal Portrush has been added to the rota of venues to host The Open Championship.

"It's a very, very special place - golfers and golf fans are in for a real treat - a lot of people have been working hard behind the scenes and I'm confident that any logistical problems can be overcome.

"One of the biggest sporting events in the world is coming to our country and it will provide a wonderful boost to the whole economy."
