Wiki, Bio, Family, Siblings, Childhood & Education
David Duval was born in Jacksonville, Florida on November 9, 1971, to professional golfer Bob Duval and Diane Poole Duval. David Duval’s father was a professional golfer and a member of Timuquana Country Club when he was a boy, and he taught David how to play golf. At the age of nine, David donated bone marrow to his brother, Brent Duval, who had been diagnosed with aplastic anemia.
Sadly, it was not as successful because the brother died as a result of infection. Brent’s death was so devastating to the family that David’s father, Bob, abandoned him with his mother for a year. David was unable to play golf for the entire year. When his father arrived and began training him again a year later, he resumed playing golf.

David Duval’s Profession & Career
His amateur career began when he was still in high school. He graduated from Episcopal High School in 1989 and was awarded US Junior Amateur Champion the same year. He continued his amateur career after high school by joining the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Men’s Golf team.
David was selected ACC Player of the Year twice and first-team all-American four times while playing for Georgia Tech. David became pro in 1993, earning him the title of National Player of the Year. These accomplishments earned him a PGA Tour Card in 1995. David later qualified for the 1996 President Cup Team, when he had a perfect 4-0-0 record.
David did not win a PGA Tour victory until October 1997, when he won The Michelob Championship, and he also won the other two Championships that year. Later, he won the PGA money list in 1998 and finished second in 1997 and 1999, respectively. He finished seventh and eighth on the PGA money list in 2000 and 2001, respectively.
Between 1997 and 2001, David won 13 PGA tournaments. The most remarkable victory occurred in 1999, when David Duval and his father, Bob Duval, both won tour events on the same day. David won the Players Championship, while his father won the Emerald Coast Classic on the Champions Tour.
David finished 80th on the PGA Tour money list in 2002 and 211th the following year, prompting him to leave the tour. He returned in 2004 for The United States Open, but owing to back difficulties, he performed terribly, which caused him to lose confidence.
He made his comeback in 2009, finishing second at the 2009 U.S. Open and again the following year at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. This earned him enough money to keep his PGA Tour membership, but by 2014, he had lost it.
