David Duval gets increased analyst duties at Golf Channel

David Duval’s once spectacular career has been derailed for a long time, but this announcement makes it seem like he’s done at age 43.

The good news for Golf Channel is that Duval has been very good in the analyst chair.

From the Golf Channel:


Professional golfer and former World No. 1 David Duval has joined Golf Channel’s broadcast team and will serve as a studio analyst and on site at selected PGA TOUR events, at major championships and other marquee events. Over the past three years, Duval has worked as a guest analyst for both Golf Channel and other sports networks, while continuing to pursue competitive golf.

“We’re extremely excited to welcome David to our Golf Channel family and our talented team of golf analysts,” said Golf Channel Executive Producer Molly Solomon. “David not only brings an enormous amount of credibility as one of the best golfers of his generation, but a knowledgeable and candid voice that our viewers will enjoy and can depend on.”

Duval joined the PGA TOUR in 1995 and posted seven second-place finishes in his first two seasons. Between 1997 and 2001, his achievements rocketed him to a World No. 1 ranking and forged a competitive rivalry with another dominant golfer of the time – Tiger Woods. During that span, Duval was consistently among the top-10 on the PGA TOUR money list- leading the list in 1998 – won the Vardon Trophy and Byron Nelson Award, posted a 4-0 record at the 1998 Presidents Cup in only his second season on the PGA TOUR, won 13 times on the PGA TOUR, twice tied for second at the Masters (1998 and 2001), played on the victorious 1999 Ryder Cup team, and won the 2001 Open Championship.

A native of Jacksonville, Fla., Duval, 43, currently resides in Colorado with his wife, Susie, and five children.
