Jason Dufner called up an audible before going to the Augusta National Golf Club for Masters Tournament, this week.
The 4 time PGA Tour champ and 1 time major champ worked most of the last thirteen seasons with caddy Kevin Baile, before he made a switch in February.
Fountain City native and veteran caddy Josh Cassell is Jason Dufners caddie for Masters. Cassell, who is a Central High School graduate, told that he met Jason through a friend of a friend. A buddy of his had contacted him. He does not really know the specifics on Kevin. This is not for him to comment on.
He is working for Jason for the rest of the year. Jason Dufner, who won the 2013 PGA Championship, denied an interview request with News Sentinel later on Tuesday. Baile denied another through social media. The twain spent most of the last thirteen seasons working with each other, save Baile’s 2013 neck injury which forced veteran caddy Adam Hayes to take his place for a short period of time.
With Cassell, Jason missed the cut in Phoenix, his very first event since winning CareerBuilder Challenge on 24th January. But the thirty-nine year old ex Auburn standout bounced back in March, attempting for eleventh at WGC-Cadillac Championship on 6th and 22nd March, the following week at Valspar Championship.
He also drew for 38th at WGC-Dell Match Play in March. Cassell told that this has been great. Everything has been going good. Hopefully they could have some success down there.
