Now this is how you keep a golf gag going. Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner weren't exactly destroying East Lake at the Tour Championship this week, but the two rivals and friends found themselves paired together on Sunday. And when Bradley holed out for eagle on the 7th, well, what better way to celebrate than a little Dufnering?
Dufnering, of course, is the ultimate slacker trend: slouching in the mode of Dufner himself in an unfortunately-timed photo at a school. Pretty much everyone in the world of golf has done it at one time or another at this point, but few with such perfect timing.
Afterward, Bradley allowed that it wasn't entirely unplanned. "I've wanted to do it all year," he said. "I thought, if I get the chance to do it, I'm going to do it. I didn't expect to make that shot. I told Duff, I don't care what happens. That was the highlight of the year for me."
"It's pretty sad his highlight of the year involves me," Dufner added.
Dufner got the last laugh on the scoreboard, finishing at a five-under T9 while Bradley was a stroke behind and tied for 12th. And he delivered the better parting shot, too. When asked what the "Keegan" would be and whether it could go viral, Dufner replied, "No. He's not that popular."
