The Week David Became a Goliath
A year ago David Duval (above) was an also-ran, a nonwinner who had seven second-place finishes in three years. Then he birdied the first hole of sudden death at the 1997 Michelob Championship, making a trivia answer of Grant Waite and Duffy Waldorf and starting a 21-tournament stretch in which he won six titles and $3,339,283. This year Duval is the only Tour player who has won more than twice. With six of the world's top 10 golfers, including Mark O'Meara and Tiger Woods, at St. Andrews for the Dunhill Cup, Duval will duel 155 others for the Michelob's $342,000 first prize.
