"I don't have a sleeping disorder," says Duval. "I toss and turn a lot, and sometimes I have trouble falling asleep. That's not why I didn't go to Spain."
After the Skins, Duval headed home to Jacksonville Beach, Fla., where he'll spend the next month licking his wounds and recharging for the upcoming season. He has already set his goals, and they are ambitious. "It's my intention to do everything I can to prepare for the major championships," he says. "If this is what you want, then I'll say it: I intend to win the Masters. I intend to win the U.S. Open. I intend to win the British Open. And I intend to win the PGA Championship."
It remains to be seen what tournaments Duval will win in 2000, but one thing is certain: He will remain the game's most fascinating figure. "I don't know how people perceive me," he says, "but I love to play, I love to compete, I speak my mind, and I won't change my approach. I'm not trying to create an image. I'm just being myself."
