Darren Clarke - 2011 British Open Champion at the age of 42

The golfing gods have been kind to two of their Northern Irish sons as Darren Clarke becomes the second golf player in this season to win a major title after Rory McIlroy won the US Open in June. Clarke was an unlikely 2011 British Open hero by becoming a champion at the age of 42 and more importantly, bagging the first major title of his golfing career.

Life on and off the greens has been hard to Clarke, who tragically lost his wife to cancer in 2006, but seems to have a few rays of sunshine in this season. Clarke won his 13th European Tour title at the Iberdrola Open in May, first for almost three years and now became a freshly crowned 2011 British Open champion where he was embraced by his parents and new fiancée.

Congratulations to a great champion!
