The Waggler Again?

OK, this is just getting weird. Last week Jason Dufner (aka the Waggler) took the lead at the WGC-Cadillac after the 1st round. This week he leads the Transitions Championship after the 2nd round.

Is this a trend?

I've tried to find something in his stats to explain his play, but I can't. There isn't any stat that he dominates. His best "standard stat" -- in the generic ones at the top of each player's stat page -- is Birdie Average, in which he's 19th on Tour. (That's 4.28 birds per round.) His Strokes Gained - Putting, supposedly the most telling stat, is negative. (He's at -.122, good enough for 113th on Tour.)

There is most certainly something diabolical going on here!

Here's what I can tell you. Jason hasn't had a bogey in either round. He's even par through the Snake Pit -- not as impressive as Padraig Harrington's 2-under in the Pit, but definitely 2 strokes ahead of the Irishman.

I have a suggestion. Whatever Jason Dufner is doing on the course, let's all start doing it. It seems to be working. Smiley Faces

In the meantime, assuming that he doesn't finish it off this week, I figure this makes the Waggler the favorite at the Shell Houston Open in 2 weeks. Perhaps he should just skip a week in-between and win the Masters.

Holy major, Batman!
