TaylorMade Tour staff professional Darren Clarke will continue to use TaylorMade equipment, including the PENTA TP5 ball; have TaylorMade logo on the front of his headwear and use a TaylorMade staff bag. The contract will go through to Darren Clarke’s 50th Birthday.

“TaylorMade-adidas Golf has been influential in what I have achieved and I’m excited to continue my career with them and be an ambassador for the brand,” Darren said. “Having the best equipment is obviously very important given the different places I visit during the year, and I always know that the highly skilled TaylorMade team is on hand to take care of everything I need”.

With 14 European Tour victories to his name, Clarke captured the Open Championship in 2011, realising a lifelong dream of hoisting the Claret Jug after delivering a virtuoso performance at Royal St. George’s. Following on, after a successful vice-captaincy role at the 2010 Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor Resort where the European Team regained the Ryder Cup, Clarke was again selected as Ryder Cup vice-captain for the 2012 Ryder Cup, bringing a wealth of experience and success to the team.

“We are delighted to be continuing our relationship with Darren Clarke”, said Ian Watts, Director of Sports Marketing for TaylorMade-adidas Golf Europe. “Darren is a great ambassador for the brand after many years and is very influential within the game. His passion and commitment shine through. We look forward to further success together”.
