An inspired Darren Clarke got the better of Tiger Woods again in yet another million-dollar duel on Sunday - and this time on one of the world number
one's favourite courses.
The Northern Irishman, the only European to lift a World Golf Championship title, achieved his second victory in the series by an impressive
four-stroke margin at the NEC Invitational in Akron, Ohio.
Clarke, who beat the world number one in the final of the 2000 Andersen Consulting World Match Play in California, clutched another seven-figure
cheque - and a trophy, of course - after a brilliant closing round of 67.
With a 12-under-par total of 268 the 34-year-old, ending a 14-month barren spell, won by four strokes from American Jonathan Kaye, Woods falling back
on the back nine into a tie for fourth with Chris Riley. Davis Love was third.
