Duval in the spotlight

Thursday, June 4, 2009

DUBLIN, Ohio – Forget John Daly. Forget Phil Mickelson. Those returns aren’t until next week in Memphis. For a more stunning and immediate comeback, how about David Duval, last seen as a competitive force in the summer of 2001.

OK, he hasn’t even completed his first nine holes, but here at the Memorial Touranment the 37-year-old Duval has ripped off three straight birdies to reach 4 under through eight holes. He’s got a two-shot lead.

As Robin once said to Batman: “Holy hole in the doughnut.”
