    Darren Clarke - Tales of The Open

    Darren Clarke - Tales of The Open

    Some players have seemed destined to win The Open as they emerged onto the golfing scene. And many, including Tiger Woods, Seve Ballesteros, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, did so early in their careers.

    Darren Clarke, one of the most talented prospects in Irish golfing history, appeared to be another of those players. But into his 40s, he had yet to claim the title, and his chances to do so were running out. That was until a fairy-tale victory in 2011 warmed the hearts of the golfing world, and completed Clarke's lifelong goal.

    With narration from Shane O'Donoghue, commentary and audio from The Open across three decades, and the words of Clarke himself, immerse yourself in this original documentary from The Open, and enjoy the astonishing story of one of Northern Ireland's favourite sons.
