Think I called Dufner as an outsider at Muirfield – UK golf mags had a few articles on him at the start of the season.
3rd round saw him miss a 2footer, but he then backed it up with some solid following holes. Could his putting stand up to the pressure? Yes, it obviously could. Fuyrk tried but couldnt get major number two after his US Open in 2003. I think Dufner is something like the 18th ‘new’ major winner in last 20 events. Will Rory or Tiger be able to dominate in the next 20?
USPGA at Oak Hill this weekend
No doubt a lot of money will be on Tiger this weekend, he’s on form and seems very hungry for another major.
Past champ Martin kaymer is getting some form back as a dark horse but no doubt Lee Westwood will be everyone’s “heart over head” choice.
Phil won the Open after US Open disappointment, maybe Lee can do the same after not making that last round count at Muirfield.
To wet your appetites, here is a PGA vid of some cracking shots in 2012.
