Clarke Defies His Own Expectations at The De Vere Belfry

After proclaiming prior to The Quinn Direct British Masters that he had little chance of making the cut, Darren Clarke defied his own expectations in spectacular fashion on Thursday with a first round 66, six under par, to share the lead with Peter Hanson at The De Vere Belfry.

The Northern Irishman’s gloomy view of his form lifted as he successfully plotted his way around a sun-kissed Brabazon Course – a venue where he has not enjoyed the greatest success in the past. His 66, which comprised six birdies, an eagle and two bogeys, beat his previous best score over the layout by two strokes.

Clarke was not alone as the confidence returned to his veins. A shot back after rounds of 67 were Paul Casey and Jarmo Sandelin, men whom for different reasons prompted much talk of renewed confidence.
