SCOTT VAN PELT
THE MASTER OF ALL HE SURVEYS. WELL WE KNOW YOU'LL NEVER ADMIT THAT THAT'S THE CASE.

BUT, YOU - YOU'VE CERTAINLY GOT GOLF IN A NICE PLACE IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW, WHETHER YOU ARE THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD, WHETHER YOU ARE ONE OF THE BEST, WHATEVER YOU WANT TO ADMIT TO.

DAVID DUVAL
THAT'S IRRELEVANT.

SCOTT VAN PELT
THAT'S TRUE. THAT'S TRUE.

DAVID DUVAL
IT REALLY IS.

SCOTT VAN PELT
BUT, YOU'RE PLAYING BEAUTIFUL GOLF.

DAVID DUVAL
UH-HUH. YES, I AM.

SCOTT VAN PELT
AND,

BECAUSE YOU'RE PLAYING WELL AND MAKING ALL THIS LOOT, IT ALLOWS YOU TO REALLY ENJOY YOUR LIFE. AND YOU REALLY DO ENJOY THE HECK OUT OF YOUR LIFE, WHETHER IT'S FISHING WITH YOUR BUDDIES OR GOING WITH JULIE TO SUN VALLEY DOING A LITTLE SNOWBOARDING. I MEAN YOU ENJOY, YOU LOVE SUN VALLEY, DON'T YA?

DAVID DUVAL
OH, ABSOLUTELY. WE'VE GOT SOME, UH, WONDERFUL FRIENDS UP THERE WE'VE GOTTEN TO KNOW. UH, YOU KNOW, SO IT'S ALMOST LIKE A SECOND HOME.

UH, WE GO AND WE KNOW PLENTY OF PEOPLE AND TO HAVE DINNER WITH AND WE HAVE A COUPLE FRIENDS THAT WE USUALLY STAY WITH. AND,

AND I THINK WE'VE SPENT UH, YEAH, ROUGHLY 25 DAYS THERE THIS YEAR SO FAR. UH,

TWO, TWO GOOD TRIPS IN THE SUMMER, ONE IN THE WINTER. UM, YOU KNOW, MIGHT EVEN HEAD THERE FROM THE PRESIDENT'S CUP.

SCOTT VAN PELT
REALLY?

DAVID DUVAL
UH-HUH.

SCOTT VAN PELT
NOW TELL US ABOUT THE SNOWBOARDING EXPERIENCE. NOW YOU'RE KIND OF A X-GAMES KIND OF A GUY WALKING AROUND IN YOUR AIR WALL KICKS AND ALL THAT GOOD STUFF.

WERE YOU -- I READ WHERE YOU SAID YOU LOOKED LIKE A HOCKEY GOALIE BECAUSE YOU HAD THE HAT, THE UH HELMET AND PADS AND ALL THIS,.

DAVID DUVAL
OH YEAH.

SCOTT VAN PELT
AND YOU'RE OUT THERE, WERE YOU RIPPING IT UP OR WERE YOU LOUSEY?

DAVID DUVAL
WELL, UH, I WAS RIPPING STUFF UP. BUT UH (LAUGH),

YOU KNOW, I WENT OUT AND - AND I DON'T WANT TO GET HURT CERTAINLY, BUT I'M NOT GOING TO NOT DO IT. AND I HAD ON A BUTT PAD, ELBOW PADS, WRIST GUARDS, HELMET, YOUR KNEE PADS AND EVERYTHING. I WAS READY TO GO, YOU KNOW. AND THEN,

SCOTT VAN PELT
SO YOU LOOKED LIKE AN IDIOT.

DAVID DUVAL
OH YEAH, ABSOLUTELY. YOU KNOW AND UH,

AND THEN I -- I HAD LESSONS AND SUCH AND THEN WE STARTED DOING SOME POWER THING. I DID A BEAUTIFUL FLIP RIGHT ONTO MY HEAD ON A CAT TRACK.

AND UH, THAT MADE ME A FIRM BELIEVER IN HELMETS. UM,

SCOTT VAN PELT
DID YOU HAVE THE HELMET BEFORE THIS OR YOU HAD IT...

DAVID DUVAL
YEAH, I HAD RENTED IT.

SCOTT VAN PELT
THANK GOODNESS.

DAVID DUVAL
AND AFTER THAT INSTANCE, I ACTUALLY WENT OUT AND BOUGHT MY OWN. UM,

SCOTT VAN PELT
UH-HUH.

DAVID DUVAL
BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE BEEN TROUBLE. I WOULD HAVE REALLY BEEN HURTING. UM, IT'D HAVE KNOCKED ME COLD FOR SURE. UM, IF NOT WORSE.. AND,

UH, I'VE WORN IT SINCE AND IT'S SOMETHING THAT I'M TRYING TO PICKUP AND I'M GETTING BETTER AT IT. I SKI PRETTY WELL. UH, I JUST WANTED TO PICK UP SOMETHING ELSE.

SCOTT VAN PELT
IS THERE EVER ANY TREPIDATION OUT THERE AS YOU'RE SHREDDING IT UP THAT YOU'RE THINKING TO YOURSELF, 'MAN, I GOT TO PLAY IN TUCSON IN NEXT WEEK AND IF I FALL AND BREAK MY ARM IN HALF THEN I'M GOING TO REALLY BE IN A WORLD OF HURT.'

I MEAN THAT NEVER ENTERS YOUR MIND. YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LET THAT

DAVID DUVAL
NO.

SCOTT VAN PELT
THAT RULE YOUR LIFE.

DAVID DUVAL
NO, NOT AT ALL. I MEAN, THE WAY I LOOK AT IT, IS, YOU KNOW, YES, I COULD GET HURT. UM, HOWEVER, I MIGHT GET HURT DRIVING TO THE GOLF COURSE THAT DAY AS WELL. BUT,

I DON'T DO STUPID THINGS. I DON'T GET CRAZY. UM, I ENJOY IT. UM, AND I THINK BECAUSE OF WHAT I DO, AND - AND BECAUSE I'VE BEEN SUCCESSFUL AT IT, UM,

NOT TOO MAY PEOPLE, MY PEERS, CAN AFFORD TO TAKE 10 DAYS AND GO RENT A HOUSE ON THE SLOPES AND, AND GO DO THAT. UM,

SCOTT VAN PELT
UH-HUH.

DAVID DUVAL
YOU KNOW, AND SINCE I CAN, I'M GONNA ENJOY IT AND DO IT. I DON'T WANT LOOK BACK, UH, WHEN I'M DONE AND SAY 'DAMN, I WISH -- YOU KNOW, I'VE PLAYED GOLF FOR 25 YEARS AND I HAVEN'T ENJOYED ANYTHING. I HAVEN'T FISHED, I HAVEN'T SKIIED, I HAVEN'T ENJOYED ANY OF THE FRUITS OF MY LABORS. ' UM,

SO I'M GONNA MAKE SURE THAT I DO THAT.

SCOTT VAN PELT
AND YOU'VE TALKED, YOU'VE BROUGHT UP FISHING. I KNOW YOU GO OUT NOT AT, NOT IN SUN VALLEY, BUT I GUESS IN MONTANA. I KNOW THERE'S A SPOT OUT THERE THAT'S PRETTY NEAR AND DEAR TO YOUR HEART AS WELL, ISN'T THERE?

DAVID DUVAL
YEAH, YOU KNOW, WE'VE, UH, SPENT SOME TIME OUT THERE AS WELL. FILMED A FISHING SHOW IN MONTANA THIS YEAR. I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. I HOPE THEY DON'T MAKE ANY OUT-TAKES, YOU KNOW (LAUGH).

SCOTT VAN PELT
THEN YOU'D BE IN TROUBLE.

DAVID DUVAL
YEAH, UH.

YOU KNOW, BUT I'M GETTING BETTER AT IT. AND UH, IT'S JUST, THERE'S JUST NOTHING BETTER THAN -- THAN BEING UH, WAIST DEEP IN A MOUNTAIN RIVER, UH, FISHING.

I MEAN, IT JUST DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER. AND THE COLORS FROM THE SUN ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S SETTING. UH, YOU KNOW IT'S JUST AS GOOD AS MAKING THAT PUTT IN TUCSON.

SCOTT VAN PELT
WELL, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT. IF THE FISH AREN'T BITING AND THE SNOW'S NOT FALLING, WE'LL LOOK FOR YOU ON THE GOLF COURSE SOMEWHERE. REALLY APPRECIATE YOU COMING DOWN.

DAVID DUVAL
THANK YOU.
