Here’s this week’s What It Means:
1) What a month Jason Dufner is having. Wins New Orleans, gets married, wins again at the Nelson. Damn. Hottest golfer on the planet for sure. The birdie putt on 18 to win the event over Dicky Pride was so pure — right in the heart.
Hey, as Jim Nantz and Nick Faldo said on the end of the CBS broadcast — maybe there is something to this laid back attitude. It’s working for Dufner, and who knows where this road leads to next.
2) Good to see Dicky Pride in contention again. He is THE prototypical journeyman, and one has to hope that his par putt on 18 that nearly forced a playoff leads to good things as time goes on.
3) Phil Mickelson made a Sunday charge before a couple late stumbles coming in. He’s playing better. A major is looming. The one he’s always wanted. The U.S. Open. Watch out!
