Duval withdraws from British Open at Carnoustie

"Best contact you've made this year Duval" remarked Frank the headcover for Tiger Woods in a memorable Nike Golf commercial. Unfortunately, the former British Open Champion's career is not looking much better. David Duval withdrew from the Open Championship while citing "personal reasons" for his failure to attend.

Duval has a single year left on the PGA Tour using exemptions from past success (he still may use his top 50 lifetime earnings exemption). However, the future looks dim for the former star. He will, of course, still retain his exemption into the Open Championship for many years to come as a result of his past victory. Though, Duval could continue to fade away from the golfing world and quit using that exemption.

In 2007, Duval has made approximately $61,000, which places him at 200th on the money list. Duval's Official World Golf Ranking: 434. It's a long way to the top, and apparently a short way down.
