I'm not sure how this wasn't a bigger story but apparently Jason Dufner gave his putter away on Sunday at the Bridgestone Invitational and putted the rest of his round with a 3-wood.

Dufner finished T66 so it didn't much matter, but still, quite an act of generosity.

Here's Shane Ryan of Grantland:

"Jason," I said. "I heard a story that you gave your putter away to a kid yesterday. I wanted to make sure it was true."

"Yup."

"Was that on no. 12?"

"Ten."

I did the math — eight holes. Dufner had always been a bit rough on the greens, but I failed to see how this would help.

"What did you putt with?"

"3-wood."

Pretty crazy, right?

I took to Twitter to confirm because all news should be confirmed on Twitter. There it was:

Dufner finished 70th in putting (out of a field of 72) so maybe he just wanted to get rid of it but it's still kind of a cool story.
