Point/Counterpoint: Should Duval be playing?

8/13/2004

In his four stroke-play rounds on the PGA Tour this year, David Duval has shot 83, 82, 77 and 81.

Granted, these rounds were played at monsters Shinnecock Hills and Whistling Straits. But if David Duval is struggling to break 80, should he even be out on the course at all?

Everyone agrees that Duval has hit a rough patch in his professional career, but arguments abound over how he should handle it. This disagreement was handled in the most civil way possible -- Greco-Roman wrestling. When that failed to produce a winner, this Point/Counterpoint was written.
