Clarke fails again at Match Play

Justin Rose handed Darren Clarke a 6&4 drubbing at the Volvo World Match Play Championship in Spain yesterday.

Clarke, the Open champion, also lost to Robert Rock earlier in the day and is thus still to survive a halfway cut this season. In the pick of the other results, Hull's Richard Finch, the world No 218, knocked out Germany's Martin Kaymer, the world No 9.
