Clarke's Spanish title left in limbo

The Iberdrola Open, scheduled to take place in Mallorca in May, has been cancelled because it could not attract a sponsor.

The Open champion Darren Clarke, winner of the title last year, and Javier Ballesteros, son of the late Seve, had been due to play in the tournament, to be hosted by Jose Maria Olazabal.
