Darren Clarke is not going to forget Celtic Manor's 14th hole for a while.

After a quadruple-bogey eight there in the third round of the Saab Wales Open, he took a 10 on his return on Sunday.

After driving into the lake the Ulsterman went to the drop zone and hit two three-woods back into the water.

"And I hit them all well," he said after a second successive 80 made him 18 over par for the tournament.

"Let's just say this course does not really fit my eye.

"It never has done - and I putted unbelievably poorly as well."

Never before in a European Tour career going back to his debut as an amateur in 1990 has Clarke failed to break 80 in two successive rounds.
