No Masters Hangover for the Duf

Jason Dufner, aka “The Duf,” is showing no ill effects from his poor showing in the Masters. He is back golfing his ball at Harbor Town and after a stellar 65 yesterday takes a lead into the final round today.
Jason is a superb ball striker, but his glaring weakness is the putter. That being said he has a few things going for him today. The greens at Harbor Town are not crazy fast and undulating like Augusta, so putting is a lot less tricky. With all the water in play his ball striking will keep him out of trouble.
His best attribute is his demeanor. You can barely tell whether he made birdie or triple bogey on a hole. He must have a heart rate of about 50, no matter what is going on. That could make him hard to beat today because there are few players on tour who can handle the pressure of trying to win a PGA golf tournament like the Duf. I fully expect him to notch his 6th tour win today.
1.4 million bucks will fill up an Easter Basket quite nicely.
