Clarke may pull out of Ryder Cup capt. race

DURBAN, South Africa (AP) - Darren Clarke says he may pull out of the race to become Europe's Ryder Cup captain for 2014 because of the impact it would have on his career in the next two years.

Clarke and Ireland's Paul McGinley are the two main candidates to replace Spain's Jose Maria Olazabal, with the European Tour's tournament committee expected to vote in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

However, Clarke said that after seeing an improvement in his own game toward the end of the 2012 season he's not sure he wants to take on such a time-consuming commitment.

The 2011 British Open champion said after his second round at the Volvo Champions that ``I am exempt for another three years (for major events) and if I was given the opportunity to do the captaincy, I'd effectively be throwing two of those years away.''
