DD Looking Sharp in the Desert

It might have been obscured by Robert Allenby's blistering 63 yesterday, but David Duval got off to a very clean start at the Hope Classic yesterday. He shot five under with no bogeys.

As most people remember, DD put together a very promising comeback campaign in 2006. He's only played one round, but it looks like he might be able to build on last year and make some serious noise in 2007. No one's ever questioned his talent, but his drive and his confidence definitely took a hit from 2002-2005. It looks like he has found both of those important elements again.

Networked Golfer roots for several players every week they tee it up, and DD is one of them. Here are a few of the others (in no particular order):

1) Jason Gore
2) Ernie Els
3) Charlie Wi
4) Ryan Moore
5) Stuart Appleby
I know there are lots of Tiger and John Daly fans out there, but I'm wondering who else (underdogs, maybe?) people root for. Let me know!

If Duval lacks drive and confidence, he will never be a true sports champion. Though I have no evidence to back it up, I would say that those two qualities are among the most important for any athlete. Can you imagine Montana, Bradshaw, Palmer, Mays, Jordan, Bird, Magic lacking drive and confidence?

Speaking of drive, notice Chris Riley's tone has changed from enjoying life to getting his act in gear and getting "a little hungry" since he's lost his tour card.
