GOLF: AFTER HIS OPEN GLORY DUVAL FALLS BACK DOWN TO EARTH.

Byline: DAVID McDONNELL

OPEN champion David Duval failed to win a hole at the Telus Skins in Canada less than 24 hours after collecting the famous claret jug.

He struggled to compete and came away having failed to win a single cent at the Angus Glen Tournament in Ontario.

The American was jet-lagged from his exertions at Royal Lytham and tired after less than two hour's sleep, but fellow Open rivals Vijay Singh and Sergio Garcia fared better.

Singh won 90,000 Canadian dollars (pounds 41,000) by sinking a six-foot putt to win the ninth, the result of four carry-overs, while Garcia collected one skin worth 15,000 dollars (pounds 6,800).

Canadian Mike Weir, who missed the cut at the British Open, won 45,000 dollars (pounds 20,500) on the fourth after two carry-overs.

The foursome will play the back nine this morning.

SAS Invitational results: Between the Nordic Team and the Rest of the World: Retief Goosen, South Africa and Ian Woosnam, Wales, def. Morten Orveland, Norway and Jesper Parnevik, Sweden, 62-66. At Oslo GK, Norway (par 72). Paul Lawrie, Scotland and Adam Scott, Australia, def. Pierre Fulke, Sweden and Mikko Ilonen, Finland, 62-64.
