Jason Dufner kindly asks Tiger Woods to shorten event this week so he can watch Auburn football

On Saturday night in Alabama, the Auburn Tigers pulled off one of the most stunning last second wins in the history of college football, taking out top-seeded Alabama thanks to a failed field goal return by Chris Davis.

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.

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.
