Jason Dufner hasn't won a tournament this PGA season, but that doesn't mean the endorsements have stopped rolling in. You may remember his Comcast commercial from last summer, so he's no stranger to the camera -- especially when he's sitting, looking less than enthused in a classroom.
Now he has a new commercial endorsing the PGA Tour Pro Series clothing line (I'm actually wearing one of their shirts right now). Jason steps up his acting game in this ad, which includes an appearance by his wife, Amanda. Remember their their wedding day music video? Some people thought that was weird, but whatever. Anyway, here's the new one.
I don't care who wins the Masters as long as it's Tiger Woods, or the Auburn Tiger himself, Jason Dufner. As spotted today by @Dylan_Reeves, their warm-up routines vary just so slightly.
War Dip Eagle, Jason.
When you win lots of golf tournaments, companies start throwing money at you. Jason Dufner has won lots of golf tournaments. Therefore, Comcast threw some money at him to have him promote their Business Class internet services.
Even when he's shaggy, even when he's playing a par 400 hole, he's still one chill bro.
Apparently being ranked #1 by your own tv station isn't enough to get you in the vote for the ESPY for Best Male Golfer. Now you know I got nothin' but love for ya ESPYS, but come on...Like last year, which understandably included Auburn in five categories, in which the jealous world kept the Tigers from winning any, let's analyze the one category an Auburn man at least should be in. And yes, I'm going to keep in mind that the ESPYs look at the accomplishments from July to July (when the show is held), so it's not just based on what's happened this year.
Luke Donald is currently ranked #1 in the official golf rankings, but he's a bust. He's the worst #1 that I can ever remember. And Bill Haas, are you kidding me? He's not even in the aforementioned power rankings, and is ranked #24 in the world. In the past two years combined, he's won half as much money as Dufner has won this year alone.
I guess when you've made somewhere around 4 million dollars in tournament winnings this year, you can afford elaborate music videos to be made on your wedding day.
This brief, yet extravagant, look into Jason and Amanda Dufner's wedding day shows us The Lip's (my new nickname for him because apparently it's not all snuff induced) dance moves, that awesome Auburn cake being eaten, and why some of you probably saw fireworks in Auburn on the night of Cinco de Mayo.
Oh, and expect another Dufner post later today, with a little less happy twist.
PGA Tour event winner - and all around Auburn man - Jason Dufner was married last night. He was married to an Alabama graduate, which I thought was an oxymoron, so that means one thing: one more Alabama fan has taken the first step on the road to recovery.
For whatever reason, I was not invited, but today a few pictures have been tweeted my way by a few of the lucky ones that got to attend the event.
First, we have the groom's cake (via @jjustjoshin), which includes Aubie riding a golf cart on Auburn's football field on top of a plateau that's creating some pretty tough golf shots.
After the basketball team lost a few more players, and the recent struggles by the baseball and softball teams, there wasn't much to be excited about over the last few weeks (other than the positive reviews of A-Day and the whole Heisman statue thing). I was beginning to think this would be a summer that I spent obsessing over the football season opener just in hopes that something good would happen once it got here. That all changed this weekend. Let's recap...
- Since taking the first three SEC series of the season (two of which were to teams that are currently ranked in the top-15), the Auburn baseball team won one game in the next three series. They were swept by last place Alabama, only took one from next-to-last place Vanderbilt, and were swept (somewhat understandably) by #4 South Carolina. So yeah, things looked pretty bad.
Then, this past weekend, Tennessee came to town sporting the exact same record as Auburn, and looking to move the Tigers down the ladder in the SEC standings (there wasn't much further down to go). Instead, Auburn pushed Tennessee to the bottom of the standings, and probably to the bottom of a bottle of some good Tennessee whiskey, by beating the Vols by a combined 35-12. The Tigers scored double digits in every game, including 10 unanswered runs yesterday in the finale. Here are the highlights of the 12-4 win.
Yes, I know this is the third video I've posted today, but they've all been winners so get off me. And when a video of Philip Lutzenkirchen on a StairMaster appears, it will be posted. I still have the greatest idea in the world for another Lutzie video, if only Phil would hit me up. Come on Phil, hit me up.
Hey Auburn, I want royalties from the 'Teach me How to Dougie/Lutzie' thing at the end.
