This Little Piggy Got a Pedicure

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. -- What did David Duval do for the first time Thursday night?
I managed to have my first pedicure, he said.
Duval suffered through an ingrown toenail while shooting a first-round 69.
It was swollen and nasty and really sensitive, he said Friday of his ailing toe. So I was kind of walking (funny) yesterday. And, in turn, that was messing up my ankles, and my knees and my hips.
I really felt terrible by the end of the day.
Duval said the therapy helped immensely. He shot 70 in the second round and is five off the 36-hole lead, at 3-under par.
Some Badd Attire
Aaron Baddeley had no thought of missing the cut at the Nissan Open, having laid out four sets of clothes for his work week.
And at 2-under par through two days, hell be around for the weekend.
The 21-year-old Australian has made as much noise with his clubs ' he announced an endorsement deal with MacGregor earlier in the week ' as he has with his wardrobe this season.
Baddeley was decked-out in purple plaid pants when he lost to Ernie Els in a playoff in the Sony Open. Thursday, he opted for the tan plaid trousers in shooting 2-under 69. Friday, it was simply solid white pants.
There is no more plaid for the rest of the week. We are going to have some brighter colors, said Baddeley, who had an even-par 71 in round two.
Baddeley, who in his first full season on the PGA Tour after finishing 10th on the 2002 Nationwide Tour money list, is in the process of working out a clothing deal with fashion designer J. Lindeberg, who also outfits Jesper Parnevik and Charles Howell III.
For now, he said Lindeberg sends him a huge bag of clothes and, I just pick all the stuff that I like. Its good fun.
Yet Another Perk
Craig Perks was voted this week the New Zealand Sportsman of the Year. He is the first golfer to win the award since the 1992 Eisenhower Cup team.
Im extremely proud to have golf back in this position after 11 years and its an incredible thrill to be Sportsman of the Year, Perks said.
Perks earned his first PGA Tour victory in a thrilling finish in last years Players Championship. He ended 34th on the money list with over $1.6 million.
Perks hasnt played well of late, however. He shot 77-75 to miss his third cut in six starts this season. He has seen his world ranking dip to 88, making him ineligible for next weeks Match Play Championship.
