David Duval, born November 9, 1971, is an American professional golfer. He comes from a golf-centric family as David’s father, Bob Duval, was a golf instructor, and under his guidance, David started his journey in golf.

He graduated from the Episcopal High School of Jacksonville in 1989, the same year he won the U.S. Junior Amateur championship. Later, Duval continued his success at Georgia Tech, becoming a four-time All-American and earning the 1993 National Player of the Year title.

From 1997 to 2001, Duval secured 13 PGA Tour victories in his early career, notably winning The Open Championship in 2001. Duval’s major titles include the 1997 Tour Championship and the 1999 Players Championship.

However, the golfer faced a downturn in his career after 2001 due to his medical issues. His performance declined without any notable victory again on the PGA Tour, and as a result, he lost his tour card in 2011.

Later, Duval transitioned into a golf analyst and commentator role, continuing to contribute to the golfing community. Currently, he is associated with Golf Channel and ESPN.

Recently, in 2021, he started playing in the PGA Tour Champions circuit in 2022, embarking on a new chapter in his golfing journey.

The Florida-born has had a lot of struggles and tragedies in his personal life. When David was nine, his brother Brent developed aplastic anemia. David underwent surgery to help his brother and donate bone marrow.

Sadly, the transplant was unsuccessful, and Brent died due to sepsis at age 12. Unable to cope with the tragedy, Duval’s father moved out of the family house.

He also had many moments in his career where he struggled with his health issues. However, experiencing the highs of his significant victories and the lows of the challenges, Duval continues to contribute to the world of golf with his determination.
