Clarke set to miss cut at Irish Open
KILLARNEY, Ireland (AP) Darren Clarke is set to miss the cut at the Irish Open after a rough end to his second round left the recently crowned British Open champion 10 shots behind leader Jeev Milkha Singh.
Playing in the first tournament since his memorable win at Royal St. George's two weeks ago, Clarke dropped four shots on his way to a 3-over 74, leaving him 1 over for the tournament.
With the projected cut at par, the Northern Irishman was likely to miss the weekend along with Ireland's three-time major winner Padraig Harrington, who is 3 over after a second-round 72.
Singh followed an opening-day 63 with a round of 70, maintaining the two-shot lead the 39-year-old Indian held overnight.
