Clarke rues missed putts at Portrush

Darren Clarke blames his putting for a one-over-par 73 in Saturday's third round of the Irish Open at Royal Portrush.

The Open champion, who lives in the town, made an excellent start with a birdie and eagle in his first two holes.

But his putting let him down and a doube-bogey at 17 left him on three under and out of contention for the title.
