Another victory for Darren at Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai Just to win, to get in the winners circle and to win again is certainly very gratifying. I love the Champions Tour.

Darren won a second successive PGA Champions Tour event with victory at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai. 

The tournament in Hawaii was Darren's first start since he secured his first PGA Champions Tour win at the TimberTech Championship at Boca Raton in November. 

Opening the week with a 63, Darren shot 68 in the second round and closed with six birdies on his back nine for a final round of 63 to reach -21 and earn a two-shot win over Retief Goosen.

Darren has been working hard since November and was delighted to get his hands on another trophy. 

He said: "Just to win, to get in the winners circle and to win again is certainly very gratifying. I love the Champions Tour. The guys have been so good to me out here since I've been out here, so welcoming. And the standard is so high, just it's incredible. The guys really flat out can play. I've been fortunate these past couple tournaments.

"I sort of broke through in Boca as you know and I sort of liked the feeling of that, Clarke said. "But down in Abaco straight after, I couldn't play Phoenix, had to go down to Abaco. Went down there with my group of mates down there, GFY Group. We play all the time. I give them lots of shots and all that sort of stuff and just keeping me competitive. I worked and practiced nearly every day from the break."

The win moves Darren up to ninth in the Schwab Cup standings.
