A quick update - after some early mild success, he hit a rough patch and missed quite a few cuts. However, in his last 2 tourneys played he has finished in the Top 25 in both, had 4 straight rounds of Par or better for the first time this year at the Colonial, has won $109,800 and more importantly, has moved up to # 144 on the money list.
2 weeks does not make a season but it certainly looks like Duval may have finally turned the corner.
As big a question as the number is the whole sponsor issue. Hendrick is tied into contracts with their 4 main sponsors for at least 1 more year (could be more). Budweiser has a contract with JR. I'm sure Bud would prefer that JR.
