Dufner a 'snuff sucker'?

Recommended Posts

joekelly    55

Read that in newspaper. Well, of all the ugly tobacco products i suppose snuff is among the least obnoxious, esp for the rest of the world.  I do wonder if he, like Bradley, is spitting on the green. Imagine, i big brown minty blob of tobacco juice next to your marker.  Perhaps Duffner is Swedish. Didn't the Swedes invent snuff because the winter weather was too cold to strike a match and light a cigarette?

But he's a champ golfer and has a #10+ wife so all is gud.

The fact that Dufner chews snuff is hardly a well kept secret.

Were you unaware of this, or are you asking something else?

Actually you are thinking of *snus* - which is a no-spit chewing tobacco in a pouch

I love how he toured NYC to meet with various press and media outlets and his hair looked like a hot mess.

I've read that he packs a fresh one at the tee box and always makes sure to ditch the lip before he reaches the green.  Of course you wouldn't see him spitting on the greens.

It gives you a bit of a buzz.  I dip when I play softball, but not golf.  Occassionally at a bachelor party or similar deal.

At the same time, I am disgusted by cigarettes.

But like cigars.

Go figure.

CBS happened to catch him spitting after he finished on one hole early on in (I believe) Saturday's broadcast. He was somewhat discrete, and off the green, but it was there for all to see.

He dips....hence the "Duf's Dips" fan club that was following him. I don't know if Jim Nantz was covering or he is just plain that stupid when he said the fan club was short for Dufner's Diplomats.

Haha that sounds like something Jim Nantz would say.  And 99% of America probably believed him.

Hahahaha. OK, seriously, WTF? Starting to think this alleged "Dufner" character may actually be an enormously elaborate piece of performance art ...

You just have to wonder about people sometimes.  I had (had being the operative word here) a good friend that got cancer inside his the mouth from tobacco use.  It ain't pretty what they do to you to try to remove the tumors and restore your health.   Dufner may be a great golfer but he is very stupid for using that stuff.  But it is America so I guess it is his right to be self destructive

Millions of people dip, smoke, and do other drugs knowing full well the possible consequences. Most will get away with it and not get cancer and a small percentage will suffer the worst of the consequences and everyone knows that. Being a former baseball player, seeing the dugout after a game was pretty terrible, being that I had to clean it up when it was my turn for that duty.  I had never seen a golfer dip but I'm not surprised that Dufner does.
