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

Nah, look at the date of the post. November something.

Man, how about this bogey free 7-under he threw at the field today! In an interview on Friday (I think it was) he was mentioning how he felt really good about his game these days. Call it a comeback?! I wouldn't mind seeing him step up.

Check out Duval in round two of the Nissan Open. He's at -5 for the tourney and is T5. Go Duval!

Go go! Beat Tiger! Errr, no, I don't want that... but this sure beats rallying to make the cut. Impressive. I guess going back to his old swing has done him miracles! I wonder why he stuck with the "other" way for so freakin' long?!?!

I hope DD gets it together. I really liked it when Vijay kinda "took on tiger" last year. I want to see someone do that again. The PGA Tour is a one man golf show with Tiger in the field. I also think that if someone comes up and starts to contest Tiger then it will bring out the best of Tiger. Tiger performs at his best when he HAS TO. If he is leading by 10 strokes then it is just another boring Sunday. I am just looking for someone, like Paula Creamer, to come up and contest the best.

Small correction re: Vijay: that was two years ago. Last year Vijay couldn't putt.

One of the poorest written articles I've ever read. More was written about announcers and himself than Duval. Not worth a read.

or will he just sail off into the sunset and outta the picture.

I'm sorry but IMHO Duvall sailed away along time ago... He isn't even a after thought anymore and to be honest for any golf fan that got into the sport with in the last 7-8 yrs I would bet they never even heard of David Duvall.

Agreed.  I can't remember the last time I skipped that many paragraphs in an article on a topic of interest to me.  I thought it was an article about David Duval, not the author's rants on all the silliness of televised golf and golf announcers/commentators.

Worthless article.  I'm not sure why it was written in July of 2013 about the 2009 US Open.

Smug?  More like emotionless.  But how many tour golfers are chipper and cheery?  If being non-smilely while doing their jobs on the course was a legitimate reason for disliking a player, more than half the pro golfers out there would have no fans at all.  A big part of the reason why most people who dislike Duval don't like him is because they claim he just hides behind his Oakley sunglasses.  I read an interview some years back and he explained that he has very sensitive eyes and he wears Oakleys because they fit his face snugly and keep out the wind that otherwise would dry out his eyes to an irritating level.

I liked Duval.  I don't recall if it was in the same interview or another one, but he really seemed like he was extremely devoted to his wife and kids and placed his family first in his life - he wasn't just one of those types who boast about being a "family man" on his 3rd cigar and 4th whiskey on the 19th hole, while missing his son's game or his daughter's dance recital.  He was also asked about his religion and while he conceded he was spiritual, he declined any further comment and said something to the effect that an individual's religion is a personal matter that should stay personal.  It would be nice if more athletes took that approach.  I'd like to see him make a comeback but too many health issues have impacted his game and that has probably had too much of an effect on his confidence.   When you think about it, it is almost a wonder that so many professional golfers can have such extended careers, with all of the stress they put on their muscles and spine.  I'm surprised that we don't hear about more back injuries on tour.

I'm not so sure about that.  I saw him last week on Feherty and he looked pretty uncomfortable in front of a camera, even at his own house.

    • Fair enough. I wouldn't have the slightest guess on average trips per licensed driver, but I would think that using driver instead of car would be more accurate.
    • Lol. Well if you don’t want to reach your potential then you’re exactly right. So If by realistic you mean what you’re willing to work on, then yes. And I’m not knocking that at all. I personally have never taken up a sport with the goal to be as mediocre as possible but I’ve known those who are happy to just play regardless of how they do. 
    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be?
