As the last player to win an Open Championship held at Royal Lytham, former world No1 David Duval has assumed the role of unofficial defending champion in Lancashire this week.
Now 40 (can you believe it?), he took to the press room this afternoon for a belated debrief and delivered nothing less than a virtuoso performance from the rostrum. Measured, philosophical and candid: it was less a Q&A than participatory lecture or work of performance art. Like the The Vagina Monologues, but with golf clubs (don’t even question that analogy: it’s airtight).
