Truth & Rumors: Jason Dufner wants to partner with Zach Johnson at Ryder Cup
Jason Dufner has spoken. That's rare enough that we should listen.
The Duf dropped in on The Golf Channel's Morning Drive on Wednesday and talked Ryder Cup. As Jason Sobel reports:
He’s such a laconic character, it sometimes can be difficult to get a read on Jason Dufner. But when captain Davis Love III asked the 35-year-old recently which player he’d most liked to be paired with at next week’s Ryder Cup Dufner was quick with an answer: Zach Johnson.
“I’ve played a lot with him in the playoffs, and we started chatting,” Dufner explained Wednesday on "Morning Drive." “Our games are pretty similar; we try to control the golf ball from the fairway and chip and putt pretty good. But we both play a golf ball that’s very similar, and that’ll be a pretty good matchup in alternate shot."
With all the talk about the American's bombing-and-gouging all the way to Chicago, Dufner does have a point: It's called the fairway for a reason, and it is fun to play from, sometimes.
