Chattanooga, Tenn. (Jan. 13, 2011) - Former world No. 1 and 2001 British Open Champion David Duval has signed a deal with Scratch Golf to carry their clubs on the PGA TOUR. As part of the agreement, Duval will feature a Scratch Golf logo on his golf bag and hat.
"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."
Duval has 13 victories in his PGA TOUR career and is a past recipient of the Vardon Trophy and the Byron Nelson Award. In addition to his major championship, he has won THE PLAYERS, THE TOUR Championship and been a member of two Ryder Cup and three Presidents Cup teams.
"I am extremely excited to join the Scratch Golf family," said Duval. "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 is the second former world No. 1 to play Scratch products. Cristie Kerr, who ascended to the top ranking in the women's game in 2010, has been playing Scratch wedges since 2009.
