The Player Formerly Known as David Duval is back in action this weekend after a seven month layoff to tend for his wife during a difficult pregnancy.
It’s fairly certain that he’s not going to win back his tour card this fall, but he has one more exemption left: for being in the Top 50 of lifetime earnings, which he most certainly will use this next year. He already was playing on an exemption this year. I’ve been seriously wondering, though, if he might not be able to get the exemption he used this year back under the Family Leave Act. He apparenlty did intend to compete quite a bit this year, but was sidetracked by the family medical emergency. Surely that would qualify.
