European 2016 Ryder Cup captains discuss next match at Whistling Straits
In front of the Ryder cup Whistling Straits has caught up with 2016 European captain Darren Clarke.
Clark participated in Team Europe five times between 1997 and 2006, four of which won.
In this exclusive Q & A, the Northern Irish discussed his compatriot Rory McIlroy, his captain, Brooks / Bryson’s feud, and more.
Do you think Rory McIlroy will be on in the Ryder Cup despite another majorless season?
Rory is the true leader of the team and we are confident that we can rely on him to do what he needs.
He is the most talented player in the world and knows what he needs this week.
I’m sure he’s looking forward to it very much.
Do you have any regrets from the 2016 captain?
You can’t think that way.
Of course, when asked about it, I would have liked another result, but I have to admit that the Americans were a better team that week.
Would you like to become a captain again?
It was a great honor to be the captain of the Ryder Cup, but I think it was my time.
There are many experienced players who will be attracting attention in the next few years, so I think you can only shoot with one shot.
How important is your home advantage in the Ryder Cup?
It’s definitely a factor, but as we’ve seen many times, it’s not insurmountable.
I’m sure American fans are as passionate as ever, but Europeans need to deal with it and prosper in the face of it.
Will Europe benefit after the Brooks / Bryson feud?
I don’t think it will have a big impact on things.
Only two people know what’s going on, and I’m sure Steve Stricker and the team will find a way around the problem.
I don’t think it will be a factor when Friday comes.
Want to see the official Senior Ryder Cup?
The level of seniors is very good and I think it’s a lot of fun to watch.
Did Americans have too many wildcards?
There are many, but are there too many? Depending on the result, it’s like coming out with a wash.
That’s the way they decided to get off, but you know because they’re all very good players.
What will Harrington look like as a captain?
He is very well prepared and after a long wait you will feel itchy to start now!
I’ve known him for a long time and he was the deputy captain when I was the captain in 2016.
What will Stricker look like as a captain?
Steve is a real gentleman and I’m sure he will be a great captain too.
Will America miss Tiger Woods, both as a player and as a deputy captain?
This Ryder Cup has been around for a very long time, but the lack of a tiger is arguably away from any event, so there’s a lot of hope for this Ryder Cup. We all hope he will be well.
Why did you decide to make Darren Clarke CBD?
Darren Clarke CBD was an opportunity I couldn’t miss.
We believe we have a powerful product that can help golfers in different ways, and I have some great feedback on it.
For me, it was especially helpful for recovery, but it has many benefits. I wanted to provide consumers with high quality products they could trust.
What effect did you find from Darren Clarke CBD?
CBD oil definitely helped my game. Especially when it comes to recovery between rounds.
It’s easy to feel tired and painful when playing a four-day tournament, but I’m confident that using CBD this week was able to counteract it. Also, I slept better than ever.
