Bad start, good comeback for Dufner

By on April 12th, 2013 in Member Post, Other Sports 2 Comments »

Jason Dufner got off to a pretty bad start Thursday at Augusta National, bogeying 2 of his first 4 holes, but played the remaining 14 holes at 2 under, to turn in a respectable even par 72. Despite 2 more untimely bogeys on the back 9, in typical Dufner fashion, he ground out 4 birdies and kept himself in the tournament. The Masters has an unusual rule that anyone within 10 shots of the lead will make the cut and be around for the weekend. Jason is well within that number and unless he forgets where he is, should be playing all 4 rounds. My prediction for today is a solid 67 or 68 which puts him in great position for the weekend.

    I’m hoping for a good Friday for Duf. Honestly, if anyone can do it–he can! He’s only 6 back (which I know means at least 6 birdies with NO bogies or worse in golf terms-so it’s not trivial–but it’s not insurmountable either.)

      Especially since Jason led the tour last year in fewest bogeys per round, only 2.1 average which is pretty darn good.
