Ken Duke Life

Kenneth Wootson Duke (born January 29, 1969) is an American professional golfer who competes in the PGA Tour Champions.

Early life

Duke was born in Hope, Arkansas, the son of Ray and Bettie Duke. He was diagnosed with scoliosis in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, and he wore a back brace for 23 hours per day. Duke underwent surgery two years after it was discovered that his spine had a 51% curvature. On February 25, 1985, the day of the surgery, Duke's spine was at 72 degrees and worsening. The curve of Duke's back was 38 degrees, within the normal range, and that's where it has remained ever since. He won medalist awards in a high school district golf tournament while wearing a back brace months later. He was the Arkansas High School Medalist at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Little Rock in 1987.

Duke played his college golf at Henderson State University in Division II. Duke was a four-time AIC Golfer of the Year and led the Reddies to four straight Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference titles. He received NAIA All-American awards in 1992.


Ken Duke Career

Professional career

Duke returned from abroad, on the Asian Tour, South American Tour, and the Canadian Tour after turning professional in 1994. He appeared on the Canadian Tour twice and was in charge of the Order of Merit in 1999. Duke first competed on what was then the Nike Tour in 1995 and qualified for the PGA Tour in 2004, but after losing his card and returning to the Nationwide Tour, he dropped his tour. He appeared on the countrywide Tour money list in 2006 and won the BMW Charity Pro-Am at The Cliffs, which regained his playing rights on the PGA Tour for 2007.

Duke put up a good start to the 2007 season in the spring, with four straight top-ten finishes, boosting Duke to the top 100 of the Official World Golf Rankings.

Duke won the 2011 Nationwide Tour Championship, earning his PGA Tour card for the first time. He climbed from 36th on the Tour's money list to seventh place.

Duke won his first event on the PGA Tour on June 23, 2013, his 187th start and after three runner-up finishes in his career. On the second extra hole of a sudden-death playoff, he defeated Chris Stroud with a birdie. He was two shots behind the leaders in the final round, but he took the lead in the clubhouse before Stroud chipped in on the final green to force a playoff. Duke shot his approach to within three feet in the playoff after both players made par on the first extra hole. Stroud, who was about 30 feet away, didn't make a birdie, forcing Duke to convert from three feet for his first PGA Tour victory. After winning, he also ranked 70th in the world rankings for the seventh time.

During the third round of the 2016 Players Championship, Duke shot a 65. The day was brutal, and this round was subsequently regarded as one of the best rounds ever played at TPC Sawgrass.

“What course was Ken Duke playing today?

Can anyone tell me?

After his third-round 73, Jason Day wondered if he was playing across the road. Russell Knox said, "I think this should be the fastest I've ever putted." "I looked up on the board and saw Ken Duke shot 65 times and was like, what?" That's probably the best round of golf ever." He finished third in the tournament, earning $504,000.

Duke was one of the few people to keep his Tour card via earnings, an exception under the PGA Tour from the 2017–18 season. After the season, Duke was unable to maintain full Tour status and became eligible for PGA Tour Champions in January 2019.
