Clarke to play in UAE
European Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke will be playing on the Mena Golf Tour at the Ras Al Khaimah Classic in the UAE next week.
The Northern Irishman confirmed that he would be participating at the Tower Links Golf Club from November 2-4.
"It feels great to be part of a tour which is headed in the right direction as it creates the right kind of competitive environment for the region's talent, especially the amateurs, to advance to the next level," said Clarke.
"I have an opportunity where I can maybe offer a bit of advice to youngsters, only because there isn't much I haven't seen at this stage of my career, and it's nice to give back.
"I just want to play some good golf and continue to work hard on my game and just keep going.
"With a population of close to 400 million, golf certainly has the potential to grow even bigger in the region."
