Duval: “I’m back where I belong”

David Duval believes he is back where he belongs in golf after tying for second place in the gruelling, 5-day marathon that was the 190th US Open at Bethpage Black .
Duval yesterday landed his biggest pay cheque since winning the 2001 Open, tying with Phil Mickelson and Ricky Barnes behind champion Lucas Glover with a take home pay packet of 559,830 US dollars – having won a total of only $771,861 in the six years before the tournament.
During that time, the former world number one has struggled with his game and until this week at Bethpage Black had completed just four of his 13 PGA Tour events this year.
A two-under-par total on the second-longest course in US Open history has left the American satisfied he can compete once again at the highest level.
“It’s what I want,” Duval said.
“It may be arrogance, but it’s where I feel I belong.
“I was glad to come up here and hit the golf ball and control myself like I’ve been saying I’ve been doing, and how I’ve been talking about how I know I’m playing a lot better than my results have been showing.
“I stand before you certainly happy with how I played, but extremely disappointed in the outcome.
“I had no question in my mind I was going to win the golf tournament today.”
