Where are they now - David Duval

Really, where is he? Only kidding. Looks like even though he played terribly (currently in last place at +13), he actually is in a good place mentally. And make no mistake - there is something mental going on here. Story here. Maybe he can bounce back.

ESPN did a 5-minute profile on Duval, along with an interview. He basically said he his judgement of success has nothing to do with scores and the leaderboard. It has to do with his desire to be there. At the end of the piece, the announcers said they Duval was once a great golfer and maybe he will be again. But if he goes a different direction in his life, he seems to be happier about it.
