Darren Clarke to play in India despite car accident
The 2011 British Open champion will be one of 24 players taking part in next week's tournament.
Dubai: The manager of 2011 British Open champion Darren Clarke says he will play as scheduled in India next week, despite being injured in a minor car accident.
Andrew Chandler says Clarke suffered a stiff neck and "just needed to rest this week" after a car in which he was a passenger was in an accident. He says the accident was last week, but didn't provide other details.
Clarke will be one of 24 players taking part in next week's inaugural Pearl Golf Premier League. The event, inspired by cricket's Indian Premier League, features eight franchises that have bought the players at an auction. The teams take part in a 14-hole competition rather than the traditional 18 at the Aamby Valley golf course from Feb. 7-10.
