David Duval, at one point in the third round of the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, triple-bogeyed three straight holes. After three rounds of play on the relatively easy courses of the Bob Hope Chrylser Classic, Duval sits at +30. The leader, Joe Ogilvie, is "comfortably" fifty three strokes ahead. Lanny Wadkins, second-to-last, is 19 strokes clear of Duval. Davis Love III made more birdies on the back nine today than Duval has made in three full rounds of play, and we're quite confident that were Sam Snead alive today, he too could beat David Duval.
Until last week, I was as big a Duval fan as you're likely to find these days. I was happy that he finished T13 at last year's Deutsche Bank Championship. As I said, until last week. Duval withdrew during one of the weather delays and returned to Colorado to get in some snowboarding. This week, he's +30 after three rounds. This week, right now, I just wish the guy would stop embarrassing himself.
