Clarke parties all night after British Open triumph

18/07/11 20:50 CET

Northern Ireland’s Darren Clarke arrived back in County Antrim on Monday after a triumphant weekend of golf.

The 42 year old, who clinched the British Open on Sunday, told journalists he had been celebrating so hard he had not even managed to read all the messages of congratulations which have been pouring in via text and email following his win.

Clarke’s victory will rocket him back into the top 100 in the rankings and his stunning performance sees him become the third Northern Irishman to secure one of golf’s four majors in the last 13 months, after his compatriots Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell clinched the U.S. Open in 2011 and 2010 respectively.
