VIDEO: Cleveland Native Jason Dufner Making A Run At The Masters

The second round of The Masters is underway, and Cleveland native Jason Dufner is right at the top of the leaderboard. Dufner, who many predicted to be a darkhorse contender, shot a three-under 69 in his first round at Augusta National. He will be out on the course early Friday morning, teeing off at 9:18 and contending with cool and damp conditions. Dufner is a quiet guy but super talented, and he's looking to rebound from last year's heartbreaking playoff loss to Keegan Bradley in the PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club. He starts Friday just two shots back of leader Lee Westwood, and he's the highest American on the leaderboard.

While Dufner is a Cleveland native, he now makes his home in Auburn, Alabama where he attended school and played his college golf. That consistently prompts "War Eagle" chants at golf courses on tour, and it did again on Thursday afternoon when a patron very audibly screamed out the chant right after his tee shot on No. 16. Video of the moment after the jump:
