As the AP's Doug Ferguson pointed out, Dufner played in the CIMB Classic in Malaysia last week, a tournament in which players were allowed to lift, clean, and place due to wet conditions. Dufner is trying to play himself back into form this fall after missing the end of last season due to two bulging discs in his neck. What did he think of Thursday's gaffe?
"Just one of those things," Dufner told Ferguson with a shrug.
OK, so at least Dufner's reactions seem to be in mid-season form.
