The death of former Auburn football player Philip Lutzenkirchen clearly hit the Tigers’ community hard. Many Auburn alums have voiced their respect for Lutzenkirchen, who won a national championship with Auburn in 2010, in recent days.
One of the PGA Tour’s top players will honor Lutzenkirchen next week.
Dufner, who’s won one Major championship–the PGA Championship last year–will play in the British Open next week. He’ll pay homage to his alma mater’s fallen former player during the tournament via his golf bag.

Dufner has long been an avid supporter of Auburn athletics. Last December, he jokingly asked Tiger Woods to reschedule his tournament so he could watch the Tigers play Missouri in the SEC Championship Game.
