Clarke bites back
"GET A LIFE!" -- that was the message from Darren Clarke yesterday to those who criticised his full-blooded British Open victory celebrations.
Clarke (42) said: "There's been a little bit of media chat about, 'he shouldn't have done this, he shouldn't have done that'. People need to get real. Look what happened in Norway over the weekend.
"I won a golf tournament and people are concerned about whether or not I had one pint too many. I mean, get a life -- it's sport."
