After a 20th place finish at the Dubai Desert Classic, Northern Ireland's Darren Clarke has dropped from the top 50 in the World Golf Ranking for the first time in a decade.

"Although a hero of the European Ryder Cup win in September, the time he took out of golf to care for his ill wife was always going to affect his ranking," reported BBC Golf.

Clarke is a popular player on both sides of the pond who will surely receive plenty of support as he attempts to reorder his life and golf game.

Darren Clarke has more inherent talent in his pinky than everyone else currently playing golf combined. When you see him play, you can just see the potential oozing from him. It may take him a while to get back to playing golf full time and seriously. I suspect he'll take more time off to be with his kids. But he'll get back into the top 50 with little trouble once he applies himself.

Meanwhile, he looks great! Definitely top 50 in the fashion department.
