Secretary of State Owen Paterson MP has congratulated Darren Clarke on winning the British Open Golf Championship today.
Mr Paterson said:
Congratulations to Darren Clarke on a great victory today.
His brilliant win completes a ‘hatrick’ of golfing triumphs for Northern Ireland, two US Open and the British Open, in just over a year.
As well as world class golfers there are world class golf courses in Northern Ireland and it would be great to see the Open played here.
