Jason Dufner Gave His Putter Away in the Middle of His Third Round at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

By Michael Shamburger

Jason Dufner’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational didn’t go so well, as he finished tied for 66th, just 29 shots behind the winner, Rory McIlroy. During the third round on Saturday, Dufner handed off his Scotty Cameron putter to a lucky kid in the gallery.

Via Shane Ryan of Grantland:

"“Jason,” I said. “I heard a story that you gave your putter away to a kid yesterday. I wanted to make sure it was true.” “Yup.” “Was that on no. 12?” “Ten.” I did the math — eight holes. Dufner had always been a bit rough on the greens, but I failed to see how this would help. “What did you putt with?” “3-wood.”"

That’s right, Dufner gave his putter away in the middle of a round and finished with his 3-wood on the greens. Granted Dufner was putting very poorly, but that’s still a nice show of generosity from Dufner.
