Clarke anticipates exciting Ryder Cup

European Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke says he expects to face a strong, young American team at the Ryder Cup in Hazeltine in a year's time.

Clarke indicates that he expects younger players such as Danny Willett and Shane Lowry to challenge the more established contingent, but still expects experienced players to make up the bulk of his team.

The Northern Irishman believes the rivalry between Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy is "great for the game", with both expected to figure prominently when Europe defend their title in the United States.
