Hilarious Jason Dufner pose in classroom inspires ‘Dufnering’ trend (Pictures)


PGA golfer Jason Dufner took some time on Thursday to hang out with a group of students at the Salesmanship Youth and Family Centers, which is an organization that works with troubled and at-risk kids and their families. As you can see from the photo above that Deadspin passed along, it appeared that Dufner was having the time of his life.

My instant reaction was that Dufner had to have known someone was taking the picture and felt like having a little fun, but it doesn’t even matter. The important thing is that the hilarious photo has started the latest social media trend, which is being referred to as ‘Dufnering.’ Check out some of these tweets, via GOLF.com.

Jason Dufner Handles Major Collapse Well

Jason Dufner blew a lead in the final round of the PGA Championship and lost to Keegan Bradley in a playoff. Dufner, who is winless on the PGA Tour, bogeyed three straight holes at the end of his final round. He also bogeyed the 17th in their three-hole playoff to lose the tournament.

One of the worst aspects of the collapse is the success Dufner had on the final four holes the rest of the tournament. The previous three rounds, Dufner went a combined three under on holes 15-18 without making a bogey. But when it counted the most, he burped big time.

Credit Dufner for maintaining a strong perspective after blowing the biggest opportunity of his life.

“I’m not a history buff as far as golf goes,” he said after the tournament. “I know the media tries to define careers on certain players, ‘you did this, and you didn’t do this’. I’m not into that. I just play golf. I love playing golf. I love the competition, and I want to be as good as I can be.

“If that’s 20th in the world with no majors, or first in the world with 10 majors, or never to win a Tour event, I’ll be fine with it.
