Jason Dufner gave his putter to kid/fan on 10th hole at WGC Bridgestone. Putts with 3W!

15 posts in this topic

Apparently, Duffy gave his putter away to a little boy on the 10th hole this past weekend in Akron at the WGC Bridgestone. Here's a link to the Grantland article:

This is an exchange between Shane Ryan of Grantland and Dufner:

Quote:

“Jason,” I said, “I heard a story that you gave your putter away to a kid yesterday. I wanted to make sure it was true.”

“Yup.”

“Was that on no. 12?”

“Ten.”

He was -1.741 strokes gained - putting, I probably would have gave it away too. :-P

But, yes, Dufner is one cool individual. Definitely one of my favourites, hope he can get his game back on track.

Most of these guys are pretty genuine people , especially when u compare the stars to other sports. That is probably a main reason why PGA doesn't divulge indiscretions like DJs. Sergio hit a woman with a ball early in final rd and knocked diamond out of her wedding ring. He told officials to get her contact info if diamond in the rough wasn't found. I have no doubt he would've paid to replace it which is pretty darn nice as well.

I think that is really cool of Duff ... one of the reasons I converted to a Ricky Fowler fan was his acknowledgment of the little kids dressed in orange and following him.

Love seeing the younger kids involved in the game, and my hats are off to players and parents that support them.

U think 1 guy like DJ represents the whole tour? Ill take PGA stars and what they do in charity and the way they act over stars of every other sport. Thank u for asking me to think about it though :whistle:

I think he is saying the guys on tour appear better mannered because the tour covers up indiscretions like DJ's. That's why your post didn't really make sense. No need to cover up if everyone is doing good.

Ahh. Well that makes more sense but there's hardly anything to cover up. Maybe 1 thing like this every few years.

There are "cover-ups" in every sport, business, school, police department, government branch, etc. though. At least the PGA comes straight out and says "We decide whether or not we make these types of issues public". That's not necessarily a "cover-up" in my book and in my own opinion. A cover-up, to me at least, is some entity going out of their way to fabricate and materialize things in order to literally cover-up the truth, whether that's with lies, paying people off, etc. Simply withholding private information of a player who is having personal issues is not a cover-up, that's just called 'confidential and private'.

Well I'm very good friends with a PGA player and a coach who teaches 3 top players so rumors abound. Who knows how much is true

    • Mayb Spieth should spend more time over his ball, talked to his caddy more, slow things down a bit...........       (god help us no!)
    • I found  that I was making better contact  when I started my downswing with my arms.   BUT, on further review, and after watching a video of myself, I found the reason.   And the reason was, I  was ending my backswing by raising my arms.   I was becoming disconnected at the top of the back swing.   Thus, by starting my down swing with my arms, I was just getting re-connected and putting myself back into the position I should have been in at the top of my down swing.  Now, I am going to work on not raising my arms at the top of the back swing.   Then, I will be able to follow the advice in the post that started this thread.  Better yet, it's way past time for me to get some lessons from my local pro. 
    • To OP, your primary focus of all should be to learn to swing on plane first. Speed will come. It will come in boatloads. Consider the analogy of a car speeding in a NASCAR track. You can throttle the car when in the straight section of the track and get max speed but you have to slow down in the turn section, no matter how powerful the engine. Swinging 'on plane' with a proper sequence is like driving the car the straight section - you can maximize leverage and inertia for speed. Leveraging a club for speed until then is like trying to speed up at the turn - you will just go off track or will have to slow down to keep control. Of course swinging on plane is easier said then done. It is as closest to the 'holy grail' of golf you can get. Everybody, even experience players, are always chasing it. But swing even somewhat on plane will do wonders. Impact will dramatically improve too. You are new to the game. It is an exciting time with all kinds of new discoveries of what you can do with a golf club. THIS is the best time to get a camera and work with a good professional - do it NOW!!   
    • I played round 1 of 2 for the final local tournament of the year yesterday.  I struggled with my driver the entire day and managed to find only 1 of 14 fairways.  It was frustrating, to say the least.  

      On the plus side, I posted a 42 - 45 = 87 and I'm only 4 strokes back heading to the final round this morning.  

      I figure, if I can jump out to a quick start early... I have a chance.  I know I need to post something really low... like an 82 or something, to have a realistic opportunity to catch the leader... but I know I can do it on the course we're playing, so... I have my fingers crossed.  

      I'm about to head out in 45 minutes or so to get some practice time in prior to the round.  I'll update tomorrow.

    • @spider  Excellent review of the track!  It should give folks a pretty fair idea of the course and what it has to offer. In terms of playability, it holds up to any major championship courses. You are rewarded for accuracy, challenging at times, suited for golfers of all skill levels. Very affordable. Although we did not see any, at times there are lots of wild life on the course and some imported such as American Bison! There used to be several herds of sheep. The location is kind of out there, quiet, and off the beaten track, yet easily accessible. And "Oh Yeah", stellar 5W! (I carry one as well, Ben Hogan Speed Slot (Laminate) which I used frequently.  I am looking forward to the next event.@Shindig says he may try to put something together for the winter.
