Jason Dufner will have more than trying to win his second career major championship on his mind next week at Hoylake.
The Auburn alum will pay tribute to former Tigers football player Philip Lutzenkirchen by playing with a patch of Lutzenkirchen's number "43" stitched into his golf bag at The Open Championship.
Lutzenkirchen, who holds the school record for most touchdown catches by a tight end, died in a single-car wreck on June 29.
