Question of the Day
PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) - Most major champions are happy to bring back a check, a gleaming trophy and great memories from their breakthrough wins.
Just-crowned PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner went one better.
His wife, Amanda, said her husband had a feeling he’d do well at the tough Oak Hill course. So, in the middle of the second round Friday, he walked over to the gallery ropes and handed over a couple of acorns he’d picked up. The plan was to plant them on a 50-acre site near Auburn, Ala., where the couple is building a home.
Amanda conceded neither she nor her husband are gardeners. So to be sure, the Dufners also spoke with the club’s general manager and arranged to have a sapling from Oak Hill shipped to the new homesite as well.
“So at least that one will take root,” Dufner laughed. “I will have some trees out there, and it will be a neat experience _ first major championship at Oak Hill and hopefully, have some of their oak trees out there on the property.”
