Tennis star Novak Djokovic has been told there’s a place for him in Team Europe at the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine – on one condition.


In an exchange on Twitter, the Serbian, who is a nine-time major winner, posted a picture of himself and friends in a Team Europe buggy, with the caption reading ‘Ready for Ryder Cup 2016! Captain of @RyderCupEurope, don’t hesitate to call us’.

And the captain did call Djokovic, or tweet him at least. Darren Clarke, who is currently in the Bahamas, picked up his phone and responded with ‘Your in the team @DjokerNole if your golf is as good as your tennis!!’.

It’s unclear how good Djokovic actually is at golf as no one seems to know whether he has an official handicap or not but, according to yourgolftravel.com, he believes he’s good enough to be out on the course, saying ‘I play well enough so that you don’t have to wait for me’.

Is that good enough for you, Darren?
