Darren Clarke held his nerve while all about him were losing theirs, in almost impossible golfing conditions to win the Iberdrola Open by three strokes from Chris Wood and David Lynn. Ireland’s Shane Lowry contended over the front nine but suffered in the tough conditions over the back nine, eventually finishing a very creditable tied fifth.
The win was Clarke’s 13th career European win and first since the KLM Open of 2008.
"It's a bit of a monkey to get off my back after three years not winning so it's good," Clarke said. "At the same time I feel a lot for Chris Wood -- he's a young guy, a great player and I've been in his position before."
