I notice you are not playing in the US or, British Open's? Is that a conscience decision or, is the another reason for this? We here in America miss seeing your competitive fires burning as you gave Tiger and Phil a run. Where is that Darren? Thanks! Stephen

Stephen Johnson

Hi there Stephen, thanks for your message. The reason that I'm not playing in the US Open or Open Championship is quite simply that I have not qualified for those events. I'd certainly love to play both events but my world ranking isn't high enough right now and I did not get through the 36 hole qualifying rounds for either event. Hopefully I'll be at both in 2011! Regards, Darren.

Hey there Big D, well played in Portugal. What about an Ulster threesome for the Ryder Cup - you, GMac, and RoryMac. Put Ulster back on the map, lets see some of that old magic again.

David Sinclair

Hi David, that's certainly a good thought! I'll have to play some good golf in the next few weeks to join Gmac and Rory down at Celtic Manor. Cheers, Darren.

Darren great finish in Portugal with the 66. Will we be seeing you in Wales in the Fall?

Richard Churchill

Hi Richard, thanks, I was really pleased to sign off with a really good final round in Portugal. Wales in September is a long shot but it won't be for the lack of trying! Regards, Darren.

Hello Darren, no questions but I would like to congratulate you on your play at the tournament in Portugal . . . It was great seeing you play with that special "fire" that we're accustomed to. I still watch you on the Golf Chanel whenever a tournament you're playing in is televised and even though I couldn't see every shot, I am so happy to have seen your rise up the leaderboard . . . Good going Darren! Valerie Lewis

Valerie Lewis

Thanks for the message Valerie, much appreciated. Cheers, Darren.

Darren, Great golf from you at the Weekend in Portugal, especially Sunday which proved to be a difficult scoring day for most. I notice your putting stats were very decent Fri - Sun. Did you change anything ? Looking forward to watching you play in Killarney at the Irish Open. John Cregan

John Cregan

Well spotted John! I changed my putter and am now using a TaylorMade Ghost which seems to be working well right now. It was great to finish with a good round in Estoril. All the best, Darren.
