DARREN Clarke has no doubts that Tiger Woods is the greatest golfer he has ever seen.
Clarke's admiration of Tiger is based on the assessment of a fellow professional who knows exactly what it takes to achieve one Major, let alone the 14 Woods has won.
"The best player I've ever seen," Clarke said. "I've played a lot of golf with him. He's a very good friend.
Clarke welcomed Woods' scheduled return for next week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
Clarke's body language yesterday en route to his second-round 74 for a one-over-par total of 143 and a missed cut, was in total contrast to his recent march to glory at Royal St George's.
