Dufner: I Was Doing Relaxation & Concentration...For The Kids

Doug Ferguson drills down on the details of the Jason Dufner photo and slouch, revealing that Dufner was engaged in the increasingly dying art of defending champions duties in Dallas, something most players phone in these days. Literally.

There is also the claim of Dufner at the topic at the time was relaxation and concentration, not that he denies the body language was anything but his normal look.

"They were talking about focusing and relaxation," Dufner said, a master at the latter. "They have some big test coming up for the class on ways to relax and concentrate. And I guess I took it to another level."

Deadspin has posted the winners of their Photoshop contest and once again, as with Tiger and Lindsey, the bin Laden raid inset made me laugh hardest.

Meanwhile Jason Gore offered his best Dufnering shot on Twitter. Jason is looking svelt these days though I don't remember such dental issues.

You mean "Osama" raid.

Same difference Rambo. Both were propped up into their respective roles and both are intent on destroying the "freedom loving infidels" in the west or whatnot...and they're succeeding it appears.

As for the photoshoping stuff...LOL, some great pics there. Who said US Tour pros are all boring and stuff...well they are inside the ropes...outside of em, it's good to see some friendly joshing. Dufner appears/sounds like a "beaut" and 100% secure in his slothful outer appearance...which hides the fact that he knows how to get his ball around a course and in the hole pretty darn fast.

It comes as no surprise that grown men who play golf for a living have haircuts that were the way their mom had it done when they were 10.

Duf is an extreme example, but from A to Z it is not difficult to find pros, with hair in bangs, just as mommy had it done oh so many years ago.

Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair just about sums it up...
