Dufner a 'snuff sucker'?

64 posts in this topic

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.

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
