Mulrooney mojo

CHANCE brought Darren Clarke and Bray caddie John Mulrooney (42) together in Mallorca in May. Clarke found himself without a bagman after a mix-up with his regular, Ricky Roberts, and Mulrooney was at a loose end when David Howell was ruled out of the Iberdrola Open by injury.

Their partnership was consummated in victory that week, Clarke clinching his first win in three years and Mulrooney his ninth in 22 years on Tour in which he's worked with luminaries like Jose Maria Olazabal (including the 1997 Ryder Cup), Miguel Angel Jimenez and Steve Webster.
