Unless you are Hanks in "Castaway" you've seen a few highlights of that play, but Auburn's quest for a national championship is now just heating up.
Auburn plays Missouri on Saturday at 4 PM ET, meaning those lucky professional golfers that got the invite to Tiger Woods' event in California will be missing a good portion of that game, if not all of it.
Which Auburn Tiger is in the field, and has kindly asked Tiger Woods to shorten the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge from four days to two days? That would be our PGA Championship winner, Jason Dufner, who went to Twitter on Monday to ask the top golfer in the world if he wouldn't mind this slight tweak.
Dear Mr @TigerWoods I petition the event this week to play 36 holes Thurs and Friday,so I can watch my beloved Auburn play for SEC champ thx

It's probably a little too close to the start date to condense the golf tournament to just two days, but maybe Dufner should plan on a couple of weak opening scores so he's sure to go out early on Saturday and get his round over with.
I guess if he opens 75-75 we will know just how big of an Auburn fan the Duf really is.
Update: Tiger responded ...
@JasonDufner Petition denied.
