Clarke and Chubby In Row Over Darren's Bank Account Status

Last week the Daily Mail's Graham Otway and Jack White's quoted agent Chubby Chandler as suggesting Darren Clarke was nearly broke before he won the Open Championship and I didn't pay much attention to it because, well, it's the Daily Mail and the alcohol was flowing after the championship.

But Karl MacGinty reports on Clarke responding to his agent's comments.

Yet, when asked yesterday if he'd been cash-strapped before winning at St Georges, Clarke said bluntly: "Not particularly. No."

Clarke had not been quoted in the article and politely declined to make any further, comment, saying: "I prefer to keep my mouth shut on those sort of things."

I smell trouble!
