Champion golfer Darren Clarke to guest-host UHS Golf Expo

June 05, 2023

A Northern Irishman whose career in professional golf spans a wide range of victories will be the featured honorary host of the UHS Golf Expo during the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open this year at En-Joie, 722 W. Main St., Endicott.

Darren Clarke is a pro who currently plays on the PGA Tour Champions and previously played on the European Tour and PGA Tour, winning an impressive 21 tournaments worldwide.

The Expo will be held on Wednesday, June 21, at En-Joie Golf Club, starting at 4 p.m., under the Hinman, Howard & Kattell tent, just off the 18th green.

The Orthopedics, Sports Medicine and Dermatology departments of UHS will present their annual exhibition, featuring a wealth of healthcare information, resources, prize drawings and giveaways.

Then, following the pro-am, at about 6 p.m., Mr. Clarke will be on hand for a live interview with radio host Dave Marr, and will provide a presentation and demonstration of golf tips.

Mr. Clarke’s biggest victory came when he emerged victorious at the 2011 Open Championship at Royal St. George’s in England, his first major win after more than 20 years and 54 attempts.

He has also won two World Golf Championship events, most notably the 2000 match play, when he defeated Tiger Woods in the final.

He has played in the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open as well. Last year he joined the foursome put together by John Carrigg, president and chief executive officer of UHS.

"We of Team UHS are honored to have Darren Clarke, a true golf champion, as the honorary host of our Expo this year," Mr. Carrigg said. “He will bring to his presentation both insights into the game of golf and inspiration for the will to win."

Said tournament Director John Karedes: “We are excited to continue our partnership with UHS and welcome Darren Clarke to this special event. There isn’t a nicer or more down-to-earth guy than Darren. He is going to host a fantastic afternoon for our community.”
