Duval is in the mix


Recommended Posts

Why does everyone have an affinity for David Duval? He is my favorite American golfer, but I'm not sure why. I think it is because he isn't afraid to give a truthful answer and he was the top golfer when I became interested in the game. I also remember back at The Belfry when the Euros won he went and partied with them. That is what the event should be about. Fight like hell for the week, and then enjoy the camaraderie between the teams. I hope he can continue to play well and finish high enough to be exempt for next year.

I am also a big fan of David Duval. I hope he continues. I think it has been more of a mental issue than swing with him. I think he just needs a little confidence.

I agree guys. His speech after he won the British open was one of the best i've heard and it certainly made him a popular guy over here. I was at the Belfry on the Sunday night of the Ryder cup (albeit not in the same bar as the players) and it was good to hear that he was getting involved with the celebrations.

 

Don't get me wrong, he's had his moments (I think he was one of the guys who made comments about getting paid for the Ryder Cup) but i'd love to see him really challenging again. Reminds me a bit of Sandy Lyle the way he was on top of the world and it all went wrong over night.

Read the new interview with him in this months subscription of Golf Digest and that will explain everything about the being paid issue at the Ryder Cup. He did not ask to be paid!!!

Remember, too, that everyone loves an underdog. The guy was a great player before and I think even though we aren't up to that level we can all sympathize with him about his game going in the toilet--we've all experienced it on our own level. I'm pumped to see how he's doing this week and I hope he's in contention on Sunday because it would certainly be such a big boost for his game.

This is the BIGGEST story of The Open. If Tiger just made the cut, we'd be seeing DD all over the place.

 

I'm watching his press conference, and as Brian Hewitt said, "He's never been one to light up the press room."

 

I hope he keeps up the solid play.

I think if he continues to make putts on those bumpy/crusty greens and continues to hit the ball decent..... he will be the man to beat. We all know that no one can stop DD if he gets on a roll..... He is my absolute favorite and I'll be pulling for him all weekend!!!

 

GOOD LUCK DOUBLE D

I like him and hope you're right, but I don't think he can drive it well enough to hang around into late Sunday. You can only get up and down from 50+ yards and make 20+ footers for so long.

too bad the site of the us open gives the rule

 

S-8. From the 2006 U.S. Open Championship, the 15 lowest scorers and any one tying for 15th place:

 

 

but if david continues to play like that he will earn his way next year with one of the following exemptions

 

S-9. From the 2006 final official PGA Tour money list, the top 30 money leaders:

S-11. From the 2007 official PGA Tour money list, the top 10 money leaders

S-16. From the current World Rankings, the top 50 point leaders

or if nothing else

S-17. Special exemptions selected by the USGA.

That is a great display by Duval. That was arguably the toughest driving course in US Open history and he finished T16 driving it pretty poorly. That just shows that his game is almost completely back minus the poor drive here and there. If he can sort the driver out some more he will definately win again. I liked Jack Nickalus' comments on players in slumps, "Talent always prevails."
