Ken Duke

Born and raised in Hope, Arkansas — the same town as President Bill Clinton — in 7th grade Ken was diagnosed with Scoliosis.

Two years later with the curvature of his spine reaching 51% Ken underwent surgery. Without it, the pressure on his lungs and heart could become life threatening.

A 16-inch metal rod was attached to his spine to facilitate straightening. Remarkably, just months later Ken returned to his high school golf team — and playing in a back brace — won medalist honors at a District Tournament.

Long known as one of the nicest guys on Tour, Ken finally got his first PGA Tour win in the 2013 Travelers Championship. Ken was inducted into the Arkansas Hall of Fame in 2014.
