Equipment

Dufner to use a mini version of A. Scott’s putter?

Published

on

Jason Dufner has changed putters a few times in the last year, but it looks as though he’ll make his most radical putter change this week at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, where he’s the defending champion.

We snapped photos of Dufner playing in Wednesday’s Zurich Classic Pro-Am with a short putter version of the Scotty Cameron Futura X Prototype putter that Adam Scott used to win the 2013 Masters.

Dufner had a breakout year in 2012 that started with his win last year in New Orleans. He won two weeks later at the HP Byron Nelson Championship, and finished second the next week at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. After all was said and done in 2012, Dufner earned almost $5 million in prize money and finished in the top 25 fourteen times, which paved the way for his second-place finish in the FedExCup Playoffs.

This year, Dufner has made less than $500,000 and is ranked 74th in the FedExCup Standings. As is the case when most players struggle, Dufner has putted poorly in 2013, going from a rank of 78th in Strokes Gained-Putting in 2012 to 133rd in 2013.

Like Scott’s long putter, Dufner’s short putter features a straight, or center shaft, and has his usual SuperStroke Slim 3.0 putting grip, which is much larger than standard putter grips.

    I wonder if he’s under contract with Super Stroke and HAS TO play it. Those large grips can be helpful for a time, but in my case, and those i play with, we have all gone back to a slimmer grip for more control.

      If that was the case then he could always go to one of there slimmer models, they have two other grips that are smaller than his.
