Don't let David Duval's 68 at U.S. Open fool you
Having more than once fallen into the trap of thinking David Duval had turned his failing career around, I’m not about to shred up any newspapers and close down Main Street for his stellar 68 on Friday at the U.S. Open.
It was obviously an outstanding round for Duval, but the problem is, many of us have been sucked into this ray of hope that somehow Duval would re-capture the glory that made him the No. 1 golfer in the world. But in the end, we are let down.
So, using past performance as a guide, my prediction for Duval, who starts the weekend six shots off the lead: He’ll shoot two rounds higher than 76. At least one in the 80s. Say 78-84.
Sorry DD fans, nothing personal. But Duval’s recent track record shows that a complete collapse is much more likely than an unbelievable triumph.

yes, he's had his blowups in the past years but all working towards making his game what it once was. he says he's been playing well and it manifested in the first two roundss. his nemesis has been his driver. his irons are good and look at his putting stats. he's confidence and he can keep his driver on the grid (same problem mickelson had a couple years ago).
duval may shoot 80 today or tomorrow but so will everyone else cause winged foot is playing that tough
It's important to spread the word, so that other David Duval fans can properly express their disapointment, because that's what's really important, right?
