David Duval stood on the green for 10 minutes chomping gum. He was waiting for the notoriously slow Bernhard Langer to get a ruling from an official, make a drop and hit not one shot, but two.
Finally, Duval got his chance and, what else? He missed.
Another bogey. Another bad day. And coming up on Saturday, another missed cut at the Masters.
Duval stood at 14-over par when darkness mercifully ended his day on Friday, with eight holes to go in his second round.
Once the best player in the world and considered the top rival for Tiger Woods, Duval will miss the cut here for the second straight time and for the sixth time in seven stroke-play events this year.
Stalking away from the course, he declined an interview request.
“You can write whatever you want, but you're not going to get it from me,'' he said.
