I was reading on GolfChannel.com this morning that David Duval has not been given a sponsors exemption to the Humana Challenge which is set to take place this month starting on the 17th. For those that are not aware, Duval has what could be argued as the defining moment in the tournament's history when he came back to win the tournament in 1999 (then called the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic) by shooting a 59 on Sunday.
He feels like the non-invite is a snub because of this and I think that I kind of agree. While he hasn't done much since his win there (he won the British Open in 2001 but then fell of the face of the earth), he still plays pretty decent golf, has had a few rounds where he looked something close to his former self (finished T2 at the 2009 US Open) and is a bit of an icon for this tournament.
Here is the link to the article I was reading:
