Darren Joins Sky Sports For Ryder Cup

Darren has joined Sky Sports for its exclusively live coverage of this week's Ryder Cup.

The Northern Irishman, who has appeared in the bi-annual tournament seven times either as player or vice-captain, will provide analysis and commentary on Sky’s dedicated channel, Sky Sports Ryder Cup.

"The Ryder Cup has been a major part of my life and I'm hugely excited to be working with Sky Sports on this truly special event," said Darren, the 2011 Open champion. "I know from experience just how gripping it can be, and I hope I can help give viewers a perspective of the event from inside the ropes."

Jason Wessely, Sky Sports’ executive producer of golf, said: "Darren is a European Ryder Cup legend and a fantastic signing for Sky Sports’ coverage, He knows the event, the players and the course and will offer fascinating insight from Gleneagles.”

Darren has played a total of 20 matches over five Ryder Cups, winning ten and losing just three. His most memorable performance came as a wildcard selection in 2006 when he won all three of his matches helping Europe to an 18 ½ - 9 ½ victory.

Sky Sports Ryder Cup will show more than 330 hours of golf across 14 days, including 36 hours of live coverage from Gleneagles.

The 2014 Ryder Cup is the tenth to be shown exclusively live by Sky Sports. The channel goes live at 6am on Thursday 18 September and continues until 6am on Thursday 2nd October.
