Different caddie on the bag for Dufner at Tiger's event


THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Jason Dufner has more worries this week than just the Auburn football game potentially conflicting with his Saturday tee time at the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge.

He’s also got a different caddie on the bag.

Dufner said his longtime looper Kevin Baile is suffering from a neck injury, so he isn’t caddying this week.

In his place is veteran caddie Adam Hayes, who has worked for Jonathan Byrd and Russell Henley in the past.

Dufner maintained that when Baile is healthy enough to return, he’ll still be his regular caddie.
