The Masters-Dufner Watch

Jason teed off at the Masters early Thursday morning with Ben Crenshaw and Bill Haas.

He shot 2 under in the par 3 tournament on Wednesday which is pretty good. Maybe he is treating the emotional baggage of the split just like he treats everything else on the golf course which is…Meh.

I will be following him and updating this post all tournament long.

Go Duf!!

    After an opening bogey on 1 and another one on 7 Jason has added 3 birdies to make the turn at 1 under with the scoring side of Augusta still to go. If he can get through Amen corner (11,12,13) even par he has a good chance to post something in the 60’s which is waaaay good!!!

    Well, Jason got my hopes up with a good front 9, and then made a mess of the back nine. He thrashed around Amen Corner in 2 over with a double bogey on the 152 yard par 3 and then made an untidy bogey on 18 to finish at 2 over 74.

    With Jordon Spieth shooting an 8 under par 64, (the kid was unconscious) the Duf is 10 strokes back and needs a good round tomorrow just to be able to hang around for the weekend.

    We need a new pic for Jason. He has lost 25 pounds of body weight and 4 pounds of hair. In his words he is on a free diet, “Gluten, Sugar, Carb, and taste”. He looks like a different person. Wonder if his new diet and lifestyle had anything to do with his split. Probably will never know.

    Hope he can make a strong recovery.

    Here’s a shot of the old look compared to the new look for Jason.

    Great comeback today for Jason. He was right on the cut line at 2 over par with 4 holes left, and 4 tough holes at that. He proceeded to birdie 3 holes in a row, 15,16, and 17, closed with a solid par to make the cut. Great clutch golf Jason!! A good weekend will really give him a boost for the rest of the year.

    Of course he doesn’t have a prayer of catching the boy wonder. Spieth followed up his 64 yesterday with a solid 6 under par 66 to set the 36 hole scoring record. The previous record of 13 under was held by Ray Floyd and stood for 25 years. The way he is playing the rest of the field might as well go “IT”. That’s “In Trunk” for you non golfers.

    If you need another reason to like Spieth, he played college golf at Texas and in 2012 sank a 30 foot putt to win the national championship when Texas was tied with…..wait for it….UAT.

    Not going to be a “War Eagle” green jacket this year. Jason had a very un-Jason like round with 4 bogeys, a double bogey, and 4 birdies for a 2 over 74. That leaves him 3 over for the tournament and tied for 46th.

    I watched him play several holes and the new look has got to grow on me, it just doesn’t look like our Jason. At least he is back injury free and will be on the first page of leaderboards soon. He is just too good a player!!

  7. MyAuburn MyAuburn says:

    Jasons Masters is officially done. He made enough birdies today (4) to post a good final round but closed ugly making bogies on 17 and 18 for a one over par 73.

    Tied for 49th the best thing you can say is that he played all 4 days and a lot of big name players were long since gone to the airport.

    He will be fine this year, just needs a little more tournament play to get back in the groove.

    Thanks for the updates. For a non-golfer, like me, it helps make sense of the crazy game. Jason showed a good “never to yield” by playing through his difficulties. Here’s hoping he picks up his moxie again!
