The Northern Irishman's five-year exemption into The Masters after winning The Open in 2011 will expire at the end of this week, and he is unlikely to qualify again as he has not reached the top 10 in the European tour since his Major win.
"I'm not going to lie, there won't be any tears shed when I walk up the 18th fairway on Friday or Sunday," Clarke told reporters. "I don't dislike the course, but the margins of error are very fine here and I haven't coped well with that fact.
"Too often I got my ambitions and my capabilities mixed up. Maybe that's the best way to describe my Masters experience."
