Darren Clarke shanks flop shot attempt

Darren Clarke

In difficult afternoon conditions at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, Darren Clarke opened the event with a three-over-par 75.

One of his dropped shots came on the par-4 14th, where with his third stroke he hit a shank as he attempted a delicate chip onto the green.

Check it out below:

Clarke was able to get up-and-down from the bunker to escape with a bogey, but followed that up with a double-bogey on the par-3 15th.

Nevertheless, he finished his round with a birdie and, afterwards, stuck it to a couple of haters on Twitter.

And then he laughed it off with good friend and Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn.
