Jason Dufner had already gained a decent following over the past couple of years, especially when the world started “Dufnering”, but the 36 year-old PGA Star from Cleveland, Ohio has become a Rock Star since winning the 2013 PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club on Sunday. Especially when he patted his new wife on the butt during their celebration in the winners circle. In mu opinion, he has become the “every man’s golfer”.
I thoroughly agree with a Forbes article from Monte Burke ” PGA Championship Winner Jason Dufner is a better Celebrity Endorser Than You Think” that Dufner has appeal to many everyday golf fans. Although he certinately doesn’t have the curb appeal of a Tiger Woods, or Phil Mickelson, he does appeal to fans who live largely South of the Mason Dixon Line.
Jason Duner is a “Good Old Boy” who was educated at Auburn University, and married a girl From Alabama(still not sure how he pulled that off), and epitomizes every redneck I know. He dips, knows what a Redneck Ashtray is, and has the demeanor of the Forrest Gump he represents in the Comcast Television Commercial.
He doesn’t appear to be the workout guru of a Tiger Woods, or Adam Scott, has a bit of a beer belly, and always looks like he needs a haircut. I hope that whoever elects to use Jason as a spokesperson for future commercials doesn’t try to change him. Although Bubba Watson has become friends with the cast from Duck Dynasty, I firmly believe Jason Dufner is a better fit.
Pretty sweet article. http://t.co/OxjMt9wgRU
