Recording a second PGA Tour victory in three weeks may have seemed like a pipe dream to Jason Dufner a couple years ago. Once Dufner could find a way to relax on the course, great things can happen to even the most timid golfers. One way to say loose in the heat of competition? A great waggle ... without holding up the round's pace of play.
With so much attention being paid to how slowly some golfers play on Tour, waggling has gotten a bit of a bad wrap. True, players like Kevin Na and Sergio Garcia in years past have certainly shown golf fans the extreme of an obsessive-compulsive pre-shot routine. At times it is downright painful to watch, especially when the resulting shot is nothing out of the ordinary. But the purpose of a great waggle is to keep the player loose and focused; not to serve as a distraction.
Dufner's waggle may seem a bit extreme at times -- as the number of club waggles can differ from one shot to the next -- but as long he keeps winning tournaments, I say the waggle stays.
