17 July 2019

148th Open Championship \'This is the biggest and best tournament in the world. I\'m determined this week to enjoy it the best I can - whether I play well or I don\'t play well\'

Darren has the honour of hitting the opening tee shot of the 148th Open Championship on his home course of Royal Portrush in Co Antrim, Northern Ireland.

He will be teeing off bright and early at 06.35 local time alongside Charley Hoffman and the Amateur Championship winner, James Sugrue.

'That 3.00 am gym session beforehand will be tough, but I'm looking forward to Thursday and hopefully I can hit one down the fairway. As soon as they asked me, it was a yes'.

Darren is delighted that the Open Championship is being played at Royal Portrush and said 'To see the R & A be as brave as they have been bringing The Open up here is great. There was so much will to bring it here'.

Speaking about the course he said 'You can try to take it on at your peril, if you want to, or you can play it smart and play the angles. The golf course is in pristine condition and there's always a way to play this course'.

'This is the biggest and best tournament in the world. I'm determined this week to enjoy it the best I can - whether I play well or I don't play well'.
