Duval was a legendary practicer and I remember him saying that after he won the British Open it didn't feel the way he thought it would feel. In turn he decided to spend more time with his family and enjoy life.
He was a big fan of Ayn Rand at one point and I believe climbing to the top of the world like he did was a ultimate goal and when he got there he realized that life was more about family and friends then pumping out majors.
I always wondered why I thought Duval was a douche nozzle. Now I know why.
I remember Duval making 6 or 7 at a par 3 on the front that day after his tee shot hit a sprinkler head. I remember thinking ''gg DD, thanks for the week.'' But he kept grinding and was brillant down the stretch.
Ricky Barnes had that championship in his pocket, I think he got to like -10 or -11 on day 3 some time. shot like 40-41 going out Sunday, ground it out and had a chance on the last to get in a playoff.
Are you smart enough not to fall for Skip Bayless's schtick? Then don't watch First Take. Don't like Brandel? Too bad, because he's featured on every hour of TGC coverage for every golf tournament all year
I like Brandel and am especially fond of Faldo. I wish Faldo would be a little less diplomatic at times but otherwise I look forward to hearing him. As for Johnny Miller, nice break from the CBS crew, but I don't feel like he adds much insight. It seems like a lot of his commentary is trying to guess where the ball is going based on the players reaction after they swing.
