Alert the media golf fans, Jason Dufner had a bad round. I kid, but it did seem for the last month that Mr. Dufner could do no wrong. Heck, even Zach Johnson tried to give the tournament back to him on 18 by not returning his ball mark back to its original position. Good thing Peter Kostis caught it before Zach signed his scorecard. Either way, congratulations to Zach Johnson and welcome to another Hittin’ the Links.
