VIDEO: Jason Dufner makes short putt, just drops putter in disgust for caddie to pick up


Jason Dufner apparently wasn't happy with the club selection on the greens on Sunday at the 2017 RBC Heritage.

Because that's the only thing that can really explain why, after Dufner made a 2-foot putt in the final round at Harbour Town Golf Links to make a bogey on the par-5 sixth, Dufner just dropped his putter in place and walked away toward the next tee.

The guy didn't pick up the putter to hand to his caddie, or did he even really gesture to him like, Hey, pick this up, would ya?

Nope, just dropped it and walked away. Then again, his caddie was walking that way with the flagstick to put it back in the hole, I guess.

The social media reaction was swift and negative, as you might imagine, because that's not something you'd expect of a 20 who just made triple from the middle of the fairway.
