All right, I know I'm a little punch-drunk from the long hours we've worked all week on the Open Championship on top of all the other events. But tonight when I was wrapping up our weekend coverage, this photo of Phil Mickelson's caddie Jim "Bones" Mackay jumped out at me.

Mackay obviously had a tiring week, both physically and emotionally, on Lefty's bag, and no one could fault him for taking a seat during the awards ceremony in which his boss received the Claret Jug. But all I could think was – Bones is ''dufnering!''

And with that, I promise, no more ''dufnering'' here in the Golf Buzz.
