Darren Clarke v David Duval
(Match halved)

Europe's Darren Clarke stayed strong to claim a half-point in a tense tussle against David Duval.

With both players matching each other in a gripping encounter, the contest developed into a battle of wills.


I'm a little disappointed but we were pretty nip and tuck
Darren Clarke

They matched scores exactly for five consecutive holes before going to the last all square.

Clarke's immaculate chip from off the green helped secure a par, but Duval holed his putt for a tie.

With both players struggling to find top form, the match was tight throughout.

Northern Ireland's Clarke charged into an immediate lead by snatching the first two holes, but was hauled back to all square by the seventh.

Europe were back in front when Duval conceded with a double bogey at the turn, but the former Open champion was level again after 12.
