“David Duval is one of the best players of his generation and we are excited that he has decided to become a part of our company,” said Ari Techner, president of Scratch Golf. “David has won championships all over the world and has an enormous following in the golf industry. We think he is a fantastic addition to our Tour staff.”
Said Duval: “I am extremely excited to join the Scratch Golf family. I put their clubs in play last season and they really made a difference in my game. In addition to playing the clubs, I look forward to working with the team at Scratch to develop some new products and grow the brand in the coming years.”
Duval parted ways with Nike last fall and then put Scratch wedges into his bag. At the McGladrey Classic in October, Duval made the leap to playing a full set of Scratch irons. He’s the second former No. 1 to play Scratch products. Cristie Kerr, who captured the top ranking on the LPGA in 2010, has been playing Scratch wedges since 2009.
Duval played in 24 PGA Tour events in 2010 and his best finish was a tie for second place at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He was 106th in earnings with $919,584.
