The 2011 British Open champion, who served as an assistant captain for Jose Maria Olazabal at Medinah, took to Twitter to issue a rebuttal:
The Daily Mail published a story Wednesday in which it reported that although a formal announcement will not be made until January, Clarke has already been approached by the European Tour about the position, and the Northern Irishman indicated he wanted the job at Gleneagles.
That news surely would be a blow to Paul McGinley, twice a vice captain for the European side and considered one of the frontrunners to land the gig.
