Well it's offical, end of the year Money list and there he is, 260th out of 268th offical members. In twenty events this year he only made one cut, and next year's the last year left on his 5 year exemption from winning the british open, anyone think he will get things in order to save his tour card, or will he just sail off into the sunset and outta the picture. Maybe he will end up an announcer, Ian-Baker Duval, has a nice ring to it.

I've hoped for the last few years that David Duval would get his game back in order. He showed a few glimpses (and only a few), but I've given up on him. And like you mentioned, next year is his last shot at glory.

Since I've been watching golf (mid 90s by the way), the collapse of David Duval is the biggest dissapointment in all of golf as far as I'm concerned. He was so talented, and now he is awful. Unbelievable.

I don't think he will get it together next year either. :/

I guess 64 in the first round in Japan and being (again!) one stroke ahead of Tiger brings some hope to this discussion...

Woweee!!!

"I played well,'' Duval said. "I've been playing well for about a month now but just haven't been scoring well. I'm well aware of how I've played over the past few years but I've worked hard and it's good to start a tournament not behind the 8-ball.''

When I finally give up on the guy, he jumps into the lead after the first round of a tournament. Maybe that's what he needed all along, a little disrespect from Mr. Thrash Talk. :)

I hope he continues his good play. He would be a huge asset to the PGA Tour in 2006.

Update

:
Former U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk fired a six-under 64 on Friday to take the second-round lead of the Dunlop Phoenix at Phoenix Country Club. He stands at nine-under-par 131 and is one ahead of both Tiger Woods and David Duval.

Still solid! He didn't shoot 84 in round 2! Charles Howell III would have at least shot 75 by now.

ok, it's on. I accept official bets. $20 DD will regain his position in top 50 and keep his card after 2006. Any takers ?

I think Duval will keep his card somehow, but I'll take the $20 bet on the top-50 part. I don't think he will make it back into the top-50. Maybe top-100, but not top-50.

And yeah, it will be a huge test playing with Tiger and Furyk. That may actually make DD more comfortable....who knows.

Don't know if you noticed this or not, but Duval is in a good position to make the cut in his first event of the year... the Sony Open.

Top 50

IN 2006?? No way. I want a piece of this. I'm in!

"Third Round, David will be playing with Tiger and Furyk, this is a huge test for Duval."

I'm missing something... third round of what? I assume we're not talking about this week's Sony.

But, anyway right now DD is at 3 under, six strokes inside the projected cut with 8 holes to play. I pulling hard for him to come back. I'd like nothing more than to see him win a tournament or to seneak up while no one is looking and win another major. He had to take a lot and held it inside. - a trooper.

Looks like he just snuck in on the cut line. I'd like to say he hit some good shots but I don't know espn showed him hit about 2 shots all together I think. (sorry still a bit bitter on espn's coverage) I hope he has a good tournament and can get back in the swing of things. I really would love to see him take those friggin sun glasses off once in a while though. Hard to really see a players emotions when their behind the shades.

Good for him!

Playing in 17 mph wind he went under the line (though he may not have known it at the time) but birdied his final hole to earn a check. That should be a confidence builder.

(oh, and he bested Michelle Wie)

    • And you or a loved one could get killed by someone running a red light, making sudden lane changes at a high rate of speed, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or a myriad of other distractions.  If your loved one died due to these would it not be as tragic, or is it only if alcohol is somehow involved, then it makes it worse?   +1 - Once emotions get in anything bad laws are sure to follow.   Auto crashes may be the biggest threat to children, but that wouldn’t be from drunk drivers killing them.  Lots of innocent people get killed in auto crashes every year, not all are killed by drunk drivers.  I’ll pose a question to all who said yes to the post, if all drunk driving fatalities are unavoidable if the person who is drunk didn’t drive, why are there any other traffic fatalities? Obviously if you haven’t been drinking you should never get in an accident?   I don’t agree that it will save that many lives.  I believe there are something like 6,000 traffic fatalities during sunrise and sunset, when visibility is poor.  Why don’t we ban driving during these times? You’re 61% number is incorrect.  And I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago and @iacas mentioned it already, but I’ll go ever further then he did, not only are more than 50% of all alcohol-related fatalities a single car crash, killing the driver and occupants with them, but not all alcohol-related fatalities mean that the person driving was impaired.  An alcohol-related fatality is if anyone in the car has alcohol in their system.  So a Designated Driver could be in a traffic fatality with 3 drunk passengers and this is 4 people involved in an alcohol-related fatality. Or you could have a beer and some dope runs the red light hitting you and causing a fatality, but you being a driver and having alcohol in your system are probably going to be the one who goes to jail. I’m glad you’ll accept the inconvenience, I’m not.Plus you’re not going to phase out all older cars in 15 years.   Sorry for your loss, but same question as before, would you feel any different if it was a red light runner that caused the same pain?  Not to be callous, just what is the difference. As stated before, more than 50% of the 10,000 are the drivers of the vehicles.   Et tu Brute.... + A Bunch...... + A bunch More... No, my vote would not change in the least.   Most people that cause alcohol-related fatalities are people with BAC around 0.15, almost twice the legal limit.  With as many Bars, wineries, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and how prevalent alcohol is, it’s amazing how safe it is on the roads or is it really becasue it’s not as much of a threat as the media and the government make it out to be.   I think @Pretzel said it great, emotions = bad laws.  
    • A good source to look is often on eBay. While there may not be manufacture specifics, there usually is some descriptive information. I did a brief search on two items that listed the shaft flex in terms which were most likely used back when the clubs were made. One item indicated the shafts were medium/regular and another were described as regular. Your dealing with "Vintage" items which were popular long before the internet.
    • Day 22 Got to take full swings today. First time since injuring my tailbone. It felt pretty good. it will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning.  Funny, putting a ball on a tee, or plucking it out of the hole still hurts a lot. 
    • Yes Erik, I thought the rule was 14-2b, but I'm not able to locate the ruling. Also meaning on the extension of their line. Is one step to the side consider to be close proximity, while a couple of steps, 2-3 steps considered away from the line enough? The guy took one stride away and then stepped back to observe.
