Jason Dufner wore a Biggie Smalls hat, and used Mizuno JPX-900 Tour irons in Hawaii

Published

on

Abiding by The 10 Hat Commandments, Jason Dufner wore a Notorious B.I.G. hat during the 2018 Sentry Tournament of Champions. Without his Titleist hat, since he no longer has a golf club or hat contract with the company, Dufner gave us a peak into his off-brand collection this week in Hawaii. And it didn’t disappoint. During the week, he wore a Bear’s Club hat, a camouflage Toronto Blue Jays hat, an American flag hat, and most importantly, a Biggie Smalls hat.

Also, as I predicted in our Two Guys Talkin’ Golf podcast, Dufner switched into Mizuno JPX-900 Tour irons for the week. It was an easy prediction for me, since the JPX-900 Tour irons are what many pros have switched into when they’re fresh out of club contracts. Just add Dufner to the list. And while Dufner was spotted testing a TaylorMade M4 driver early in the week, he played in the event itself with a Titleist 917D2 driver that he used throughout 2017.

Dufner, who earned a spot in the Sentry TOC with his win at The Memorial in 2017, finished at 10-under par and T11. Not a bad showing, although he did lose by 14 shots to the freakishly good performance of Dustin Johnson.

Until Dufner inevitably signs contracts, his hat and golf club choices will be a must follow in 2018. And we’ll be here to keep you up to date on anything noteworthy.

    Dufner did NOT play the M4 this week. He used his 917 driver. The fact that he would rather use what many describe as an inferior driver, rather than an M4, raises some questions

      Titleist doesn’t go as straight or far but sounds and feels fantastic, so whatever tickles your testes.

    More proof that TM are the best woods and Mizuno are the best irons out there at present. When money doesn’t corrupt the decision, the truth comes out. Got that, Sugar Daddy Rhino Bob?

      Pretty sure TMag still does a wood contract for every tourney used. Or least they used to.
