Clarke and Daly Bring Major Attraction to Beko Classic2 min read


Posted on: 11th Nov 2013

Major Champions Darren Clarke and John Daly have been confirmed to compete in the 2013 Beko Classic, which will take place at Gloria Golf Club in southern Turkey from November 21st to 23rd.

A new challenge awaits the players at Gloria GC, where each will be playing in their second Beko Classic, with Daly having first played in 2010, and Clarke in 2012, of which both tournaments took place at Antalya Golf Club.

2011 Open Champion, Clarke, will be coming off the back of two PGA Tour appearances at the McGladrey Classic in Georgia and the OHL Classic in Mexico, and will be looking to better his tied-12th performance in last year’s tournament.

The five-time Ryder Cup player and two-time non-playing Vice Captain gained a five year exemption from the PGA Tour and is looking to play the required number of tournaments in the US to remain a member, and will make a return in the new year for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February.

Daly, the colourful winner of the 1991 PGA Championship and 1995 Open Championship, makes a return to the Beko Classic after his 15th place in 2010 and will again bring his huge hitting prowess and adventurous attitude to the 54-hole Pro-Am format tournament.

Turkish golf has been on an incredible rise in recent years having played host to the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final at Antalya Golf Club in 2012, and most recently the European Tour’s Turkish Airlines Open by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal, which forms the penultimate part of the Tour’s Final Series in the Race to Dubai.

The 2013 Beko Classic is the 12th Confederation of Professional Golf-sanctioned edition making it the longest running Pro-Am in the Association’s calendar. This, combined with the attendance of big name players such as Clarke and Daly, has undoubtedly played an important part in helping to develop the game throughout the nation.
