Darren Clarke wants players to play

Darren Clarke, whose wife Heather died on Sunday, has urged many of his friends not to pull out of this week's PGA Championship.

On hearing the news that Heather had lost her long battle against cancer early Sunday morning, fellow Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell, Ireland's Padraig Harrington, Lee Westwood of England and Thomas Bjorn of Denmark were among those believed to be wrestling with whether they could face playing at Medinah, with Heather's funeral likely to be held this week in Portrush, Northern Ireland.

However, "Heather would have wanted them to play," Clarke told the Irish press.
