The Herald - Sport - - GOLF -

EUROPE’S Ry­der Cup cap­tain Dar­ren Clarke in­sists there will be no con­tro­ver­sial games­man­ship at next year’s com­pe­ti­tion fol­low­ing the up­roar at the women’s Sol­heim Cup ear­lier this month.

Clarke said the in­ci­dent, when Europe’s Suzann Pet­tersen in­sisted on pe­nal­is­ing the USA’s Ali­son Lee for pick­ing up her ball af­ter she be­lieved a putt had been con­ceded, was against the spirit of the game.

With a year to go un­til the tour­na­ment tees off at Hazel­tine, Clarke said: “This Ry­der Cup will be played in the man­ner in which Davis [Love III, US cap­tain] and I re­spect each other. We’ve been friends for such a long time; he’s prob­a­bly one of the best gen­tle­men in our sport.”
