Dufner trying to fulfill prognostication


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – New senior writer Jason Sobel received a ton of heat for predicting that Jason Dufner would win The Players Championship. (find link here) Sobel ranked his top 20 players here at TPC Sawgrass and somehow came to the conclusion that Dufner would be holding the hardware Sunday evening.

Through 13 holes Dufner is tied for the lead at 5 under par with a host of others, including last week's Well Fargo winner Lucas Glover. Dufner has made five birdies. But he still has the three difficult finishing holes facing him.
