Darren Clarke is the 10-11 (from 5-2) favourite with Coral to captain Europe’s Ryder Cup team at Gleneagles in 2014, after sustained support for the Northern Irishman in the last 48 hours. One-time favourite, Paul McGinley, is now second in the betting at 5-4, with Colin Montgomerie out to 8-1.
“Darren Clarke has denied being offered the 2014 captaincy, but punters clearly believe he has a major chance of leading Europe’s defence at Gleneagles, with Paul McGinley his leading rival for the skipper’s role,” Coral’s David Stevens told betrescue.com
Europe are 4-5 favourites to triumph at Gleneagles, with USA 5-4 and the tie 10-1.
