This week, we will not only be supporting Jason on the course during the 2018 PGA Championship, but also raising funds to provide food and resources for children in need. ”KT Tape is a lightweight, elastic sports and fitness tape designed as a drug-free solution for muscle, ligament and tendon pain relief and to provide support for many sports-related injuries. Applied along soft tissue, KT Tape interacts naturally with the body’s neuromuscular systems to allow individuals to remain active while recovering from injuries. It delivers pain relief and support before, during, and after activity without restricting motion. KT Tape is designed to withstand sweat, strain and can be worn in water or under body-hugging athletic apparel while providing long-lasting relief. "I'm proud to partner with category leader KT Tape this week for the PGA Championship and raise funds for the foundation to help feed kids in Lee County," said Dufner. "KT Tape has been supporting my muscles on and off the course, keeping me ready for each round. Now, we are working together to support the children in the community I call home. "Winner of the 2013 PGA Championship, Dufner has five career PGA Tour victories, and he has recorded two top-10 finishes this season. On the way to his PGA Championship win, Dufner shot a second-round 63, tying the major championship scoring record. His round of 63 was the 26th in major championship history, and he was the sixth player to match the record and go on to win. A limited quantity of each of the KT Tape partnership hats autographed by Dufner can be purchased at kttape.com.
