Clarke To Bring Luck Of The Irish To Minnesota

After the announcement that Darren Clarke will captain Team Europe in the 2016 Ryder Cup, we have drawn up a range of special markets.

The County Tyrone native has the tough task of selecting the team and we suspect he will have Under 2.5 Irish players on the team at 4/11, with Over 2.5 priced at 2/1.

Clarke’s Wildcard selection isn’t expected to go to an Irish player at 2/5, but punters can avail of 7/4 should they believe he will choose to give it to an Irish player.

USA are 11/10 to win the Tournament Outright, having last won in 2008. Current champions Europe are on offer at 10/11 to hold onto the title for a third successive year. Ties are a rarity in the Ryder Cup with only two ever recorded and it’s 10/1 to bring that total up to three in 2016.

Should Europe triumph yet again, we are 4/1 that the winning putt will be holed by an Irishman.
