Darren Clarke Net Worth $22.5 Million
Northern Ireland professional golfer, Darren Christopher Clarke has a net worth of $22.5 million as of May 2012, according to the Sunday Times Rich List. His total prize money in Europe and America now stands at more than 22m. He’s sponsorship deals with Taylor-Made, Audemars Piguet, Dunlop and Stuburt. He got a 2m bonus from Dunlop owner Mike Ashley for winning The Open. Sponsorship and other work on the years would ordinarily add at least 18m. But along together with his close friend and fellow golfer Lee Westwood, Clarke lost cash buying a 10-seater Challenger 601 Lear jet at the top of the marketplace and selling in the bottom. As a result might had lost 15 million. Clarke’s life and career have already been marked by some outstanding highs and lows, but 2011 was particular, even by his standards. First of all he wed former Miss Northern Ireland Alison Campbell on 11 April 2012. The Dungannon-born Clarke lost his wife Heather to breast cancer before playing a fundamental function in a mental Ryder Cup triumph at the K Club, near Dublin. But Clarke’s glory came in July when he defied both the elements and also the world’s best golfers to win The Open at Royal St George’s. It saw him soar up the world rankings and got him into all four of golf’s majors for another five years.
