Jason Dufner holes out for second straight week, actually celebrates after this one

If there is one constant joke about Jason Dufner it's that his mild-mannered attitude leaves golf fans wondering if the guy ever gets excited for anything.

We've seen Dufnering take off at an incredible rate, and we've seen him make big putts to win golf tournaments, but most of the time it's just a 36-year-old man walking a green pasture with something tucked under his lip and few worries in the world.

On Thursday at the Byron Nelson, Dufner made the turn at 2-over after a birdie on his ninth hole and was faced with an approach shot on No. 1 from 129 yards.

The shot ended up perfect, dropping for an eagle just a week after he did the same thing at the Players Championship. His reaction at Sawgrass was subdued, but Dufner actually got into this one a little, doing what looked like a mix between the double fist pump from Tiger Woods at the 2008 U.S. Open and that old D-Generation X move from the WWE.

Dufner shot a round of even-par 70 on Thursday, leaving him 10 shots back of Keegan Bradley, but I'm sure Bradley would have loved to have this shot on one of the two holes he made bogey on during his incredible round of 10-under.
