Dufnering takes pro golf and Twitter by storm

Scott Halleran

It was only a matter of time before the world understood the greatness that is Jason Dufner: pro golfer by day, Twitter meme sensation by night.

PGA Tour veteran Jason Dufner is a quiet man. He prefers to keep to himself. He contributes to charity, stays away from paparazzi flashbulbs and is all-around a great guy. He's also one hell of a golfer.

Duff -- as he's known in the pro golf circuit -- can also be a bit, well, overly-comfortable. As was reported yesterday, Dufner attended what appears to be a "Books Are Fun"-type event for children at a local grade school. Somebody snapped the following photo of Dufner lounging around:

As it turns out, Dufner's pro golf friends have Twitter accounts and they're not afraid to use them. Hilarity ensued, and the internet meme "Dufnering" was born.

First, Rory McIlroy:

Then Luke Donald:

Keegan Bradley, Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker:

Then, of course, Bubba Watson...

... and Rickie Fowler.
