Northern Ireland golf star Darren Clarke tees up plans for bar in Carolina

By Lisa Smyth

Northern Ireland golf star Darren Clarke has announced a new business venture - with the opening of a bar in the US planned for this summer.

The sportsman, from Dungannon, Co Tyrone, last night tweeted his excitement at the upcoming opening of Darren Clarke's Tavern in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

The announcement was accompanied by what looked like plans for the interior of the premises.

At 48-years-old, Clarke is likely to be considering life after golf and as a self-professed lover of cigars and fine wines, opening a tavern in America seems like the natural next step.

Clarke is in good company, joining the likes of Graeme McDowell and Tiger Woods who already run successful bars in America, with Portrush golfing star McDowell running two bars in the US.
