Darren Clarke opening a bar at Hilton Head

Darren Clarke is familiar with libation work. He told Golf Digest's John Huggan in 2008 that the only job he's ever had was at a bar called The Inn in the Park, in his home town of Dungannon, Northern Ireland.
He's never been shy to enjoy the spirits himself, as evidenced in his famous Open Championship press conference when he told the assembled media "I've had a few beers." Experiences that will suit him well in his next endeavour: owning a pub.
On Twitter Sunday, the Ryder Cup captain announced he'll be opening a bar in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
Given Clarke's reduction in play, the pub could be seen as a new career phase for the 2011 claret jug winner.
Clarke is far from the only player with his own pub. Tiger Woods has a restaurant in Jupiter, Florida, and fellow Irishman Graeme McDowell's Nona Blue establishments have been a success.
