David Duval apparently won the British Open Golf Championship in 2001 and though we don’t follow golf at all, someone alerted us to the fact that while Duval is in Lytham St. Annes for this year’s event he’s been rocking a Burton hat. Though we’re wondering if wearing a Burton hat while discussing all his injuries is such a good idea. Here’s what he said today, according to a story on Golf Digest:
“Yesterday I hit three or four shots that almost put me down,” he said. “I’ve worked my tail off. Unfortunately for me I’ve had multiple nagging little injuries. I’ve had tendinitis in both shoulders; I’ve got it in my elbows; I have bone bruises in my knees right now; I have a back problem that’s well-documented; had tendinitis in my wrist; I’ve had vertigo. Is that it?”
The big question is: is David just doing it as a favor to his friend Jake, or is Burton looking again at new ways to unseasonlize their brand?
