It may have been Europe that seized the title at the K Club but the Ryder Cup firmly belongs to Darren Clarke – and I’m sure that nobody would disagree. Following a fantastic three days of competition, Clarke could not but break down when the title was finally claimed. Given the hardship that he has experienced in recent times, his mental battle to play in this tournament was simply epic. The way he played was simply majestic. Congrats to the European team, hard luck to the US and see you all again in 2 years.
