Throughout the month of December, The Clubhouse will count down the 20 players to watch during the 2015 PGA Tour season. From upstart young players to veterans hoping to maintain their elite statuses, there’s no shortage of storylines across the game of golf heading into the new year.
Jason Dufner missed most of the second half of 2014 with a neck injury, including the PGA Championship where he was to defend his 2013 title. During his time away from golf, Dufner lost a few pounds as well as his long hair, changing his look completely. He would return in late-October after a three-month absence to finish T-26 at the CIMB Classic.
Heading into 2015, Dufner currently sits at No. 36 in the world, a significant drop since being No. 6 back in 2012. Nevertheless, he’s one to watch in 2015 according to John Maginnes and Jeff Rude of The Clubhouse.
Check out their take on Dufner below, as they look ahead to 2015.
Former PGA Tour pro John Maginnes, longtime Golfweek Senior Writer Jeff Rude, and extreme sports champion Will Christien co-host Back9Network’s nightly talk show, The Clubhouse. The playful banter of Maginnes, Rude and Christien will echo the conversations one would hear at the 19th hole. The trio’s no-holds-barred discussions will cover the latest happenings both on and off the course, as they incorporate questions and guidance from viewers at home, celebrities and the game’s professionals.
Making a stop at The Clubhouse gives golf lovers across the country a perfect way to end the day, weeknights at 10 p.m. Eastern.
