With his lowest round at an Open since his 2001 victory at Royal Lytham, David Duval crafted a 32-35=67 to post the early lead in round three at St. Andrews.
With the wind finally abating in the 144th Open Championship, Duval cashed in with seven birdies against two bogeys on his morning lap after going out in the opening group with Scott Arnold. We're more used to seeing the former World No. 1 in the Golf Channel commentary box these days but, having made the cut on the number with a birdie on 18 late last night, Duval currently resides in the top 20 after posting 5-under 211. The American, who is just 1-for-4 this season, split 10 (of 16) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation. Where he'll settle at day's end remains to be seen as some of the early starters are tearing it up. Nevertheless, it's heartening to see a former champ displaying the sort of links expertise that helped him lift the Claret Jug 14 years ago. Jul 19 - 7:29 AM

David Duval makes his 19th career start at The Open Championship and his third at this week's venue, The Old Course at St. Andrews.

Duval is 10-for-18 at The Open with one top 10, his win in 2001 at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club. Incidentally, it was also his last of 13 wins on the PGA TOUR. The 43-year-old has missed the cut in his last six Open appearances (seven of his last nine), including in the 2005 and 2010 editions at St. Andrews, where he was a cumulative 24-over-par. The former World No. 1 primarily displays his wares in the golf commentary booth these days but has sprinkled in four PGA TOUR starts in 2015, missing three cuts, his lone deposit was a T47 at the Puerto Rico Open. Duval is scheduled out at 10:23 a.m. local time on Thursday with fellow Open champs Stewart Cink (2009) and Ben Curtis (2003).

David Duval returns to TPC Southwind for his seventh appearance at this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Duval finds himself in Memphis, Tennessee, via sponsor exemption. He finished T19 here in his 1993 debut but hasn't secured anything better than T60 since then. Duval is far past his best days but he did manage a T47 in his latest PGA TOUR start, accomplished at the Puerto Rico Open. Gamers should holster their excitement and keep expectations to a minimum.

David Duval tossed up a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open to finish one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

This leaderboard has shaped up like a step back in time. Duval is the latest of a certain age to find himself near the top of it. He totaled 13 greens in regulation and buried three birdies, all on par 5s. Alas, his only bogey was on the other par 5, No. 5 at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. The 43-year-old has sprinkled in the occasional red number on the PGA TOUR, but he hasn't connected them since stringing three together to open last year's Zurich Classic of New Orleans where he tied for 25th.

David Duval will step out of the television booth and inside the ropes for this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Now a contributor to Golf Channel telecasts, Duval's playing days largely appear to be behind him. He still possesses Past Champion status, which was good enough to get him into the field at Pebble Beach. He hasn't made the cut in a PGA TOUR event since a T25 in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in 2014. It's worth noting that he picked up his last of three runner-up finishes in this event as recently as 2010.

David Duval followed his opening, bogey-free 68 at the Sanderson Farms Championship with a 7-over-par 39-40=79 to post 3-over 147 and miss the cut.

Duval striped only six (of 14) fairways and found just eight greens in regulation at the Country Club of Jackson today. He converted two birdie-3s, but also squared six bogeys and a triple bogey-6 to clinch his 10th consecutive start without a payday. With David Toms atop the leaderboard and Lucas Glover and Padraig Harrington finding old form, it almost seems unfair that Double D is on the outside looking in, but it takes 36 holes to tango, even for major champions.

David Duval dusted off his form and submitted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 for his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

You never really retire from golf, but Duval intimated that 2013-14 would be his last full season chasing the dream. An elbow injury precluded a fair fight, so he's giving it another go. The Country Club of Jackson has served as a time machine for a few of the touring pros long in the tooth today. Duval split 10 (of 14) fairways and went 4-for-4 in scrambling. He found four birdies, but penciled in pars on each of the four par 5s. Come Friday, he'll be gunning to put an end to an 0-for-9 drought that dates back to May.

David Duval will get introduce to the Country Club of Jackson at this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

Duval's attempt to mount a career comeback hit a snag last year when he went 3-for-15, and secured just one top 30 along the way. There were a few rounds worth highlighting, but consistency is still an issue for the 13-time PGA TOUR winner. Most notably, Duval lost 47.562 strokes:tee-to-green in 22 measures rounds last year. Gamers can look elsewhere this week and in future weeks.

David Duval got back inside the ropes today and signed for an even-par 36-34=70 following his opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

Since we last checked in on Double-D, he's fallen a spot to 200th in the FedExCup standings. If you've followed his season, it's a terrific barometer at how little one needs to do to qualify for the Web.com Tour Finals. He's 3-for-14 with a T75, T35 and T25. More recently, Duval has battled an elbow injury, so perhaps his commitment to the Wyndham is an indication that he'll give the four-event series a go just to see what happens. He hit 12 greens in regulation today, but wiped away four birdies (including on both par 5s) with four bogeys.

David Duval is listed in the published field of next week's Wyndham Championship.

We last saw Duval at last week's Barracuda Championship where he called it quits during his second round with a recurring elbow injury. It's difficult to know what his goals are at the moment. The Wyndham concludes the regular season and he's currently 199th in FedExCup points. Short of a win, he may be playing only for a spot in the Web.com Tour Finals. But given his statement before this season -- that he may be done playing full-time if things didn't go well -- it's fair to wonder if he'd even accept the exemption to play in the four-event series.

David Duval withdrew from the Barracuda Championship during the second round, citing an injured elbow.

He completed 13 holes at Montrêux Golf and Country Club today for minus-8 points. Duval totaled minus-9 through 31 holes. This drops him to 3-for-14 on the season. He battled an elbow injury earlier in the year. This marks his third mid-tournament WD in his last six starts.

David Duval has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Duval was the fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry following seven withdrawals today. He missed the cut at The Open Championship by six strokes to extend his drought without a payday to five. He's 195th in FedExCup points.

David Duval settled for a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in his opening round of The Open Championship.

Back in play after a back injury forced him to withdraw before his second round of last week's John Deere Classic, Duval fared well today. He traded two birdies with three bogeys and sits five strokes off the clubhouse lead. His title at Royal Lytham & St. Annes in 2001 remains the most recent of 13 PGA TOUR victories. It would be refreshing to see him succeed this week, but the writing seems to be on the wall that 2013-14 will be his last as a full-time competitor on the circuit.

David Duval withdrew before today's second round of the John Deere Classic due to a back injury.

He was slated to go off the 10th tee at 7:10 a.m. CT. Duval opened with a 10-over-par 39-42=81 that included three bogeys and four doubles. He arrived at TPC Deere Run ranked 194th in the FedExCup standings. If he's able, he'll try again at next week's Open Championship, but it seems rather clear now that he's on the fast track to a career as a television analyst, especially since he acknowledged that he was giving just one more try at the life of a touring professional this season.

David Duval chased his opening 68 at the Travelers Championship with a 13-over-par 41-42=83 to post 11-over 151 and miss the cut by 12 strokes.

Egad! When Duval couldn't miss with his putter on Thursday, it wasn't a stretch to think that things would go in the opposite direction today. But this? He found only five greens in regulation in the second round and circled one birdie. Elsewhere, he swallowed six bogeys, two doubles and a quadruple-bogey 8 to conclude his round at the ninth hole. It's possible if not probable that his elbow was a bother, but it's the same reason why he wasn't a favorable option in any format entering the week.
