Jason Dufner has big plans for the acorns he collected from Oak Hill Country Club during his PGA Championship win last week in Rochester, N.Y.
Not only does Dufner want to grow oaks on his property, he would also like to use the acorns to give back to his alma mater, Auburn. And as many sports fans know, Auburn could sure use some new trees.
The oak trees at Auburn's famous Toomer's Corner were poisoned by Alabama fan Harvey Updyke Jr. two years ago and had to be removed in April.
Cue Dufner and his acorns. Dufner says it would be cool if the acorns that he collected were one day oak trees at Toomer's Corner.
"That would be nice, if they're up to it. It's an idea," Dufner said. "I know we've got some time before we can actually plant something in that area, but I think that would be pretty cool. But that's probably pretty selfish on my part, too. Maybe it'll be an option."
