We're going to miss you, Jason Dufner.

Oh, you're not gone yet. But you're leaving soon?

According to SB Nation Dufner (who is 37 years old) doesn't want to play competitive golf much longer.

"I'm not going to be one of those guys who plays on the senior tour; it's not for me," said Dufner. "[I have] maybe another five years left of doing this [playing professional golf] and then onto something else."

Something else like posing for elementary school children in a nondescript manner? Or maybe going around the country taking selfies?

Whatever it is, golf will be worse off without Dufner in it.

He also told SB Nation which tournament he most wants to win before hanging 'em up.

"The national Open. I always remember thinking the US Open would be a good fit for my game. I still feel that way...a US Open would be nice, for sure."
