Auburn RB Tre Mason sends Alabama alum Amanda Dufner an autographed picture

Tre-Mason-picture-Amanda-Dufner

Jason Dufner and his wife Amanda live in a divided household. Jason walked on to the Auburn University golf team, where he began defying the odds en route to becoming one of the best golfers in the world. He is also an avid Auburn football fan. Amanda went to Alabama.

I’m sure Jason has let Amanda hear plenty about the incredible victory Auburn scored over Alabama that paved the way for the Tigers to earn a spot in the BCS National Championship Game. But just in case Amanda needed another reminder, she recently received an autographed photo from Auburn running back Tre Mason.

Mason, a junior who has rushed for 1,621 yards this season, wrote “War Eagle!” on a photo of himself and signed it. It’s unclear if Jason put him up to it, but I wouldn’t doubt it. After all, he probably owed Amanda one after that embarrassing photo she took of him and the PGA Championship trophy.

Jason Dufner tells Howard Stern he grabbed his wife Amanda’s butt

Jason-Dufner-Amanda-butt-grabJason Dufner’s lovely wife Amanda was one of the first people to congratulate him after he won his first major at the PGA Championship on Sunday. As the two embraced while Dufner walked off the 18th green, his hand wandered a bit and he gave Amanda a pat on the backside. While it wasn’t a huge thing, everyone has been talking about it.

On Tuesday morning, Dufner made an appearance on “The Howard Stern Show.” Naturally, Stern and co-host Robin Quivers asked the 36-year-0ld about the women in golf and if he has ever noticed any golf groupies. Golf Digest transcribed the exchange for us:

Stern: “There are golf groupies though, right?”
Dufner: “Oh yeah.”
Stern: “Like you come off the course, and there’s so many chicks.”
Dufner: “Yeah, it’s like every other sport. But I stay away from that. I’m married.”
Robin: “Yeah I was just going to say, he’s married. And they were making comments about the hug you gave your wife.”
Dufner: “Yeah, I grabbed her butt.”
Stern: “See, you can’t win. If you’re into your wife and your grab her ass, you get in trouble.”
Dufner: “Yup.”
Stern: “And if you’re not into your wife, and you cheat on her, you get in trouble.”

Stern also got some other funny quotes out of Dufner, like getting him to admit that Rory Sabbatini is the biggest jerk on tour and that he “rubs everyone the wrong way.” Dufner also said he has no issue with fans yelling things like “baba booey,” which infuriates Ian Poulter as we learned from his recent Twitter exchange with Stern.

“No, I never think of that,” Dufner said. “It doesn’t bother me. Like you said, nobody does it while we’re swinging or before we’re swinging. It happens afterwards. Obviously, people are trying to get noticed. And clowning away that way. But sometimes the stuff is pretty funny that they say, you know?”

Judging by the way Dufner carries himself on the course, it’s obvious there isn’t much that bothers him. People yelling “baba booey!” and talking about him grabbing his wife’s butt fall under the same umbrella.

Jason Dufner celebrated his first career major by giving his wife Amanda a pat on the backside.

Dufner, 36, shot a final-round 68 at Oak Hill on Sunday to capture the PGA Championship, which was his first major title. He held off Jim Furyk by two strokes, making the most of a superb 63 he shot in the second round on Friday.

The former Auburn walk-on has been playing strong golf since marrying longtime girlfriend Amanda Boyd in May 2012. He won the Byron Nelson last year, finished second at the Colonial, and finished a career-best tied for fourth at the US Open. This year, he finished tied for fourth at the US Open.
