Duru Dominates on His BackhandNov 16, 2016
Joan Duru isn't taking any chances in the Hawaiian Pro. After six full-time seasons on the Qualifying Series, his solid No. 4 QS rank this year finally puts him in a position to break through onto the Championship Tour in 2017.
With his dream on the line, the Frenchman refused to falter yesterday at Haleiwa. His aggressive backhand attack earned a huge Round Three win over heavyweights Italo Ferreira and Brett Simpson.
San Clemente surfer Ian Crane also went down in Duru's Round Three wake.
