Golf Australia Express : August 2014
Y OU either love him or hate him. Love the laid back, seemingly emotionless approach to golf, or loathe it. Celebrate his droll, montone voice, or become irritated by it. But one thing you can't deny Jason Dufner is the success that has come to the 37-year-old American later in his PGA Tour career than most stars. This time last year, Dufner was on the verge of joining the Major Winners Club, his iconic waggling swing taking him to the top of the leaderboard at Oak Hill on Sunday. It was a famous victory for a player who'd come agonisingly close to achieving the same feat just two years earlier at Atlanta Athletic Club, only to lose in a playoff with good friend Keegan Bradley. It seems this championship — the PGA Championship — suits Duf Daddy. At least it does most years. In his defence of his 2013 title, the Ohio native will head to Valhalla under an injury cloud. A persistent neck complaint threatens to derail the world No.27's title defence — not that you'd know it by looking at the emotion he's showing. The injury first popped up during The Masters in April and he hasn't been able to shake it off ever since. “It makes it pretty tough,” Dufner said recently. “Lack of sleep, lack of motion, lack of strength. A lot of different issues when you’re dealing with your neck.” But does he still think he's a chance at Valhalla this week? “I had an average year last year until that last major. Maybe this will be the same thing this year,” he said. Beware the injured golfer. OTG the defender Unsure where you stand? Get to know Jason Dufner in the videos below. We think you'll find he's just a misunderstood enigma. LOVE THE DUF MEET DUF-MAN FUN STUFF WITH DUF WAGGLE ROCK DEFENDING: A PAIN IN THE NECK
