PITTSFORD, N.Y. – It will go overlooked in the final analysis, but Jason Dufner’s putting this week at Oak Hill was every bit as important as that Ben Hogan-like ballstriking clinic he put on thanks to a putter switch last week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
Dufner switched back to the Titleist Scotty Cameron putter he used last year at Firestone and, while he looked less than stellar over some short putts at the PGA Championship, his lag putting was nearly flawless.
For the week, Dufner only had one three-putt and ranked seventh in the field for the week with 10 one-putts.
“I call it the money maker,” said caddie Kevin Baile. “We put it back in the bag because he has better speed with it. Last week it was much better.”
