Darren Clarke ends drought

Darren Clarke claimed the Iberdrola Open on Sunday ahead of Chris Wood and David Lynn, his first title since August 2008.

The Northern Irishman had trailed Wood by four shots going into the final round but a round of 69 saw him clinch the title by three strokes.

Wearing a black long-sleeved golf shirt, Clarke birdied the third and went on to complete a flawless front nine.

However, the 2010 Ryder Cup vice-captain hit the water on 11 and dropped two shots but he recovered with two consecutive birdies on 14 and 15.

Clarke secured his 13th European Tour win with a par-saving putt on the 17th from off the green.

He said: "It feels pretty good. I got so down after my weekend in Morocco where I played poorly.

"I went on holiday with the kids and then worked on a few things. I feel for Woody, he was trying to win his first tournament. Things went for me."

Clarke's previous win came at the 2008 KLM Open.
