Jason Dufner honors Philip Lutzenkirchen with '43' patch on golf bag

Jason Dufner's Auburn pride is constantly on display, but at the British Open, it's for a more solemn reason. Dufner is honoring and remembering an Auburn community favorite with a patch on his bag. Just before he left for England, Dufner had a "43" added, the number worn by the late Philip Lutzenkirchen.

Lutzenkirchen, a tight end and leader on the 2010 national championship team, died in a car crash on June 29 at the age of 23. The sudden and tragic loss shook the Auburn community, and this is one way that one of its most prominent members will honor Lutzie at Royal Liverpool, and presumably going forward on the PGA Tour.
