Open star Darren to party hard.
DARREN CLARKE won his first major title at the age of 42 in the Open Championship at Royal St George's yesterday, then predicted a "very, very long" celebration for himself.
Clarke carded a final round of 70 in tough conditions to finish three shots clear of American pair Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson.
"It's just incredible, I'm speechless," said Clarke, who lifted the Claret Jug at his 20th attempt.
And asked about his celebrations, Clarke said: "I think they will be very, very long and I'll be very hungover. There might be lots of Irish black stuff in this trophy."
