Where are they now - Matt Kuchar / David Duval

Playing well at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. More on Kuchar.

Meanwhile, David Duval will re-surface on the PGA tour once again. He is also getting married. And even his sponsers are sticking with him - From Golf Digest:"We hear of companies dumping players when they've lost their games, but here's a case of faith winning out over return-on-investment. Nike has extended David Duval's contract through 2006 even though his career has gone south. The deal is incentive-based, which it should be when you're 249th in the world. If Duval gets the bug to play soon, he should test himself at the Chrysler Classic of Tucson. He won there in 1998, and most of the world's best players, plus the national media, will be focused that week on the WGC-Match Play."

Here is a story on Duval's return to the game. Here's another story on Duval buying a home in Denver. Here is a story from the Orlando Sentinel, which says his return will be March 25-28 at The Players Championship.

Let's hope David is happy and finding contentment in his life. We would all love nothing more than to see him return to the form that led him to the top 10 all-time money list and the last guy to be #1 befor Tiger. But if not, hopefully he has found some peace and contentment.
