Teeing off: Golf player of the week

Jason Dufner. He’s not being recognized for anything he did on the golf course. One picture — Dufner shown visiting a third-grade class in Texas, sitting on his hands, looking as disinterested as possible in classic Dufner style — quickly went viral. The pose has spawned an avalanche of copycats (including Bubba Watson and Luke Donald), many of which Dufner retweeted, and almost immediately took on the form of a verb. It may not rival the craze created by a kneeling Tim Tebow, but #Dufnering has taken the golf world by storm.

Master of his craft
