Around The Traps DUFNER'S PAIN IN THE NECK JASON Dufner is expected to be on hand to defend his PGA Championship title at Valhalla, but he’ll be doing it with a fair degree of pain. The reigning champ has two bulging discs in his neck, discovered in an MRI scan after Dufner felt pain in his neck during Masters week. “It makes it pretty tough. Lack of sleep, lack of motion, lack of strength, a lot of different issues when you’re dealing with your neck,” he said. Dufner said the pain prevented him from getting any sleep the night before the second round of the US Open. WRISTY BUSINESS FOR DAY JASON Day’s never-ending battle with that damned thumb and wrist injury shows no sign of ending, with the world No.9 now changing his grip in order to counter the pain. He’s softening his grip to transfer the pressure to his left thumb knuckle, rather than pushing down on top. Day said he was still unable to practise at 100 per cent. “I am trying to change my grip quickly and it feels awful right now,” he said. “The unknown of when it (the injury) will be ready is a big source of the frustration.” SCOTT'S MAJOR COMPLAINTS THE world is not enough for Adam Scott. Not content with a Masters victory and top spot in the rankings for 11 weeks, Scott is smarting that he’s let more majors slip over the past two years, including the Open Championship for the third year in a row. “Looking back on it, I was still annoyed that I didn’t play better to win because I felt I did everything right,” he said. “I feel like my game is up there to win a major, and I need to. If I have 20 fifth-place finishes in majors in my career and I only win one, I’m going to be pretty disappointed.”
