David Duval Rises at Ginn sur Mer Classic - Hull Paces Hana Bank KOLON Championship

"Duval contends." How good does that sound? David Duval, former world #1, has endured years of struggles of various types to attempt to regain the form that made him a world #1 and chief Tiger Woods contender. It's very difficult not to root for a guy that has persevered and worked hard to be the golfer we remember. Certainly not the most verbose pro, Duval nevertheless has keen insights on the golf world when questioned properly. His reticence seemed to be more derived from his quiet persona rather than star dust. I, for at least one, am unabashedly pulling for a Duval win and the additional chances he'll receive. He's done it the right way.

The news. Ryan Palmer leads the Ginn sur Mer Classic after the second round. Palmer's

Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open - Round Two
standing at 143rd on the tour money list will make his weekend interesting. His -6 total is a single shot clear of Peter Lonard, Robert Allenby, Ken "of Hazard" Duke, and Michael Letzig. One more back at -4 stand the aforementioned Duval and John Huston. Play was suspended today with a sprinkling of players left on the course, none threatening the leaders.

In odd tournament news..... "sur Mer" means "by the sea" and defending champion Daniel Chopra was inexplicably alone in last place after carding 81, 79.

Hana Bank KOLON Championship

Katherine Hull's -6 lead the way in the Hana Bank KOLON Championship in Incheon, South Korea. I'll let The Constructivist at Mostly Harmless detail the action in his inimitable style. No one pens women's golf with such passion and precision.

Til' next,
