Jason Dufner continues to be a very hard guy not to like. He's laid-back, enjoys his time on and off the golf course and is doing something incredibly classy at next week's British Open.

Dufner, a very proud alumni of Auburn University, is paying tribute to another member of the Auburn family who passed away on June 29. Philip Lutzenkirchen, a 23-year-old member of the 2010 Auburn football National Championship team, died last month after getting in a car accident, and Dufner is paying him tribute by putting his football number on his golf bag for the British Open.

It's a cool move by Dufner and a special one for the whole Auburn family, and just another classy move by the 2013 PGA Championship winner.

Dufner also posted a picture of he and Lutzenkirchen after news came out about the accident.
