Darren Clarke Remarries In Bahamas

Darren Clarke has married Alison Campbell in a simply ceremony on a Bahama beach.

(I am happy to report I predicted this last week while writing an Augusta diary piece for The Express newspaper)

Clarke first met Campbell in 2009 when the pair were set up on a blind date by fellow golfer Graeme McDowell.

Campbell is a former Miss Northern Ireland and Campbell runs a model agency in Belfast and McDowell had been dating one of Campbell’s models.

Clarke’s first wife, Heather died of breast cancer in 2006 and Clarke battled in the days, weeks and months after her death dealing with the loss.

Last July in being handed the Claret Jug at Royal St. Georges, Clarke publically thanked Campbell for her support.

Campbell was not present last week at Augusta but Clarke then travelled to join her and her two sons Stuart and Phillip from her former marriage along with Clarke’s his two sons Tyrone and Connor in the Bahamas.

Also attending the beach wedding was McDowell and his new girlfriend along with Clarke’s long-time manager, Andrew ‘Chubby’ Chandler.

The pair were married under a white arch at the Abaco Club, a beachfront golf and hotel resort in the Bahamas.

After the vows golf manager Andrew ‘Chubby’ Chandler tweeted a photograph of the happy couple.

“Darren and Alison Clarke getting married on a spectacular day at the Abaco Club,” said Chandler.

Later he added: “One of the nice things is that G-Mac introduced DC and new wife on a blind date and they have made it today, seen the job through to the end!”

Chandler also later posted a photograph of the smiling newlyweds with their matchmaker and his girlfriend, Kristen Stape: “The happy couple with another happy couple,” he wrote on the social networking site.

Not long after the pair met, he moved his boys back to Northern Ireland to set up home in Portrush and overlooking Royal Portrush Golf Club and venue in July for the return of the Irish Open to Northern Ireland.
