Darren Clarke remarries in Bahamas
LONDON -- British Open champion Darren Clarke has married his fiancee Alison Campbell in a small beach wedding in the Bahamas.
The 43-year-old Northern Irishman made the announcement on his website, revealing that former U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell -- who introduced the couple to each other through a blind date -- was present at the ceremony along with members of Clarke's family and agent Chubby Chandler.
It was a "pretty stunning occasion, as well as a very happy one," Clarke said.
Clarke has previously credited his partner with putting his life "back on track" following the death of his first wife Heather in 2006 after a battle with breast cancer.
Clarke became one of the British Open's most popular champions when he won at Royal St. George's last year.
