NOTES
Ireland and Northern Ireland will be well represented this week at the Irish Open. Major champions Padraig Harrington, Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy and Darren Clarke headline the field at Killarney. Clarke said in his news conference after winning the British Open that he would be at this event, but also joked, "I might not be sober." He is still celebrating his victory at Royal St. George`s, where he picked up his first major championship title. His win there followed McIlroy`s title at Congressional, where he took home the U.S. Open crown. Last year, Ross Fisher closed with a six-under 65 to win by two strokes over Harrington. In the second round, Fisher matched the tournament record with his 10-under 61. The victory was Fisher`s fourth on the European Tour. He has struggled this year with his best finish being a share of ninth place. Golf Channel has four hours of coverage of all four rounds. The European Tour will be in the United States next week for the WGC - Bridgestone Invitational, where Hunter Mahan closed with a 64 to win by two last year.
