Save The Crew: Explaining Jason Dufner’s latest headwear selection

Published

on

Jason Dufner wears many hats. This is a literal statement: Since his hat deal wrapped, the Duf has been wearing, well, whatever he wants on his head.

A few of Dufner’s headwear decisions have created a minor social media stir (nothing approach the buzz surrounding his National Custom Works irons, but still).

In his Memorial Tournament practice round, we spotted Dufner wearing a “Save the Crew” hat.

If you’re unfamiliar, “the Crew,” refers to the Columbus Crew, the city’s MLS team, which the owner is trying to relocate to Austin.

The Ohio native had this to say

“They’re going through a thing with relocation. Their owner’s trying to take them to Austin. People here are really passionate about soccer. I wouldn’t say I’m extremely passionate about soccer, but I identify with what they’re going through, being from Cleveland and losing the Browns in the ’90s.”

The wound that will never heal. Thanks, Modell. Anyway, we shot these photos of Dufner, Tuesday.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Dufner is wearing a series of local-themed hats in conjunction with MSF Real Estate Captial, which approached him about sponsoring his headwear for the week.

You can see the rest of what Dufner will be wearing, here, and all the hats are available for purchase, with one-quarter of the proceeds benefiting the Jason Dufner Foundation and one-quarter of the net proceeds going to the “Save the Crew” campaign.

    Columbus has been a money loser for the league for a very long time. But the supporters of Columbus deserve to keep their club. They should be relegated to USL, and if a new owner comes along, “expand” again.

    Austin should pay full fare and go through the normal process. It’s only fair.

David Ortiz shares his side of the story from his Mayakoba controversy with Matt Kuchar

Published

on

Matt Kuchar returns to the site of his 2018 Mayakoba victory this week—a week which proved extremely damaging to the 41-year-old’s public persona.

The result of last year’s win was overshadowed after Kuchar paid his stand-in caddie, David Ortiz, $5,000 for helping him to his eighth PGA Tour win and the $1.3 million prize at Mayakoba. After a messy, publicised back and forth, Kuchar eventually paid Ortiz $50,000, and over the weekend the Mexican caddie revealed his side of the story.

Speaking to the New York Post, Ortiz revealed that he carries no animosity towards Kuchar following the incident, stating

“Kuchar is a good person. I’m not angry. Everything is good. Not paying was not good. But I have no anger.”

Per the report, before the event, Kuchar’s deal with Ortiz was that he would pay the stand-in caddie $1,000 for the Tuesday practice round, $1,000 for the Wednesday pro-am and $3,000 for the tournament rounds (cut made, or no cut made).

However, Ortiz then requested 10 percent should Kuchar go on to win, to which the 41-year-old responded “Of course,” though Ortiz claims, “it felt like he was just looking at me like I’m this little guy.’’

Kuchar’s payment of $5,000 did not equal one percent of his winnings and led to plenty of vocal critics amongst golf fans and pundits alike.

It was then director of golf at El Camaleon, David Lopez, who got involved on Ortiz’ behalf. Lopez contacted Kuchar’s agent, Mark Steinberg, who curtly blew off Lopez’ request that Ortiz’ payment be increased, responding to his email saying “No. What we paid you is fair.”

Following Kuchar’s comments that, “For a guy who makes $200 a day, a $5,000 week is a really big week”, Lopez once again emailed Steinberg stating that the issue had now become a racial one, and per the report, two days later, Ortiz had been sent an extra $45,000.

All’s well that ends well for Ortiz, who explained to the Post how important the $50,000 is to him.

“Fifty thousand dollars, for me, is big. It’s everything to me and not much to (Kuchar). The $50,000 I needed for my business and to fix my kitchen and bathroom at home and to buy a new cell phone.”
