David Duval To Lose His Tour Card

There's a familiar face missing from the leaderboard on the final day of the last PGA Tour event of the season. The problem for Duval is that he's been missing from an awful lot of PGA weekends.

Does Q-School offer GEDs, or adult learning classes? Because the former world No. 1 has had a rough, oh, past eight years, he's losing his PGA tour card and will have to qualify to play a full slate of tournaments next year.


Since the top 125 on the money list receive full status, and Duval entered the weekend at No. 125, his missing the cut on Friday means he'll be just like you or me or any other schlub next year; he's already signed up for qualifying school.

Because he's still a name, he'll receive some sponsor's exemptions. And because he won the 2001 British Open, his last PGA Tour win, he'll be able to play in at least three majors. But it's still a remarkable fall from grace for the man once considered Tiger's only competition.
