With another season on the horizon for Jason Dufner, chances are you'll notice the No. 43 patch on his golf bag. It's not there because of any superstition -- it's there as a tribute to a lost friend.
Philip Lutzenkirchen was a tight end for the 2010 Auburn football team that won the BCS title. With Dufner being a big Auburn supporter, the two became friends, especially after an injury to Lutzenkirchen's hip caused him to miss time on the gridiron.
On June 29 of last year, Lutzenkirchen died in a car crash outside of La Grange, Ga.
Shortly thereafter, Dufner debuted the patch on his golf bag.
"I wanted to let (Lutzenkirchen's) real-close friends and family members know that people in the Auburn family were thinking about him, and that we weren't going to forget him," Dufner said in a recent interview with the Golf Channel.
