Venetian Macao Open
14 October 2016

Venetian Macao Open From a personal point of view, we’ve got to get back to where it got me there in the first place, which is to play golf. I couldn’t think of a better place to do that than starting here in Macao. It’s almost like a fresh start for me again in terms of playing and I’m excited to be back here

Darren played in the Venetian Macao Open at Macao Golf and Country Club at Estrada de Hac Sac Coloane. He shot rounds of 74 and 73 missing the halfway cut which fell at one over par.

Speaking at the pre-tournament press conference Darren said, "We played nine holes this morning with Ian Poulter and the trees are a lot bigger than they were the last time I was here. We used to take some short cuts the last time but I don’t think we can do that here now. On my last trip here, I really enjoyed myself. I probably enjoyed myself more the last time when I was here so this time, I’ll try to play a bit better. It’s always a pleasure to come back here".

"My priorities the past 18 months to two years have been towards the Ryder Cup. Obviously, that’s now finished and from my own perspective and from the European perspective, we had a disappointing result. I couldn’t have done any more than I tried to do. Now I’ve got to get back to the day job and try to hit a golf ball and hit it straight. As you can see from the guys sitting here on the stage, you know the standard of which they play, you know we’ll have a fantastic champion here again. From a personal point of view, we’ve got to get back to where it got me there in the first place, which is to play golf. I couldn’t think of a better place to do that than starting here in Macao. It’s almost like a fresh start for me again in terms of playing and I’m excited to be back here".
