A PGA tour professional golfer will be making a statement at the Zurich Classic next week.

Pro golfer Jason Dufner will show his support for the New Orleans Saints when the Zurich Classic tees off next week, with a hat reminding everyone how NFL referees blew the NFC Championship game.

The hat is being provided by local car dealership owner Matt Bowers. Bowers also paid for several billboards that expressed his unhappiness about the game's outcome.

Not that we need to revisit it here, but with the game tied and less than two minutes to play in regulation, the officiating crew missed two obvious penalties on Los Angeles Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman that would have resulted in a first-and-goal for the Saints, allowing the Black & Gold to bleed all but a few seconds off the clock before kicking the go-ahead field goal.

The Rams ended up winning in overtime, then went on to lose the Super Bowl to New England 13-3, the lowest-scoring championship game of the modern era of the NFL.

The hat bears the message #SaintsGotRobbed, which Dufner wears in this video:

Another hat reads #SCREW'DDAT.
