Former world number one golfer and major champion David Duval looks to hang up the cleats after an overall very solid 18 year career that included 19 professional wins and an Open Championship victory in 2001. He is widely known as the last number one ranked golfer in the world before Tiger Woods dominated for many years after until he was overtaken by Rory Mcilroy but since has regained his number one rank. These tweets by the golf great really hint the possibility stating that if he doesn’t perform well then it’ll be time to call it a career. With all that bring said I wish to state without hesitation that 2014 is the last time I will ask for exemptions. — David Duval (@david59duval) December 11, 2013 I will be asking for starts but this is the last time. I think that if I can have a 20 event schedule then it's up to me to get my status. — David Duval (@david59duval) December 11, 2013 As a player you need to perform and if I don't do that in 2014 I will do something else...
