Los Angeles - US golfer Jason Dufner's laid-back lounging at a charity youth centre visit
sparked a Twitter trend on Friday as his fellow pros - and a host of others -
posted pictures of themselves "Dufnering".
"What can I say, I was tired, my back hurt from sitting on the floor, and we
were talking about relaxation and focusing," Dufner
tweeted after the picture of him lolling on the floor with a group of children
became a social media sensation.
Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy was among the many to tweet a picture of
himself sprawled in a "Dufnering" pose.
"It's the best thing ever," McIlroy enthused of Dufnering after firing a
second-round 70 at the Houston Open on Friday.
US golfer Keegan Bradley had posted the picture of Dufner on Twitter on Thursday evening.
Luke Donald Dufnered, as did fellow English golfer Ian Poulter. Bradley,
Brandt Snedeker and Dustin Johnson posted a picture of themselves Dufnering
together at the golf course.
LPGA golfer Paula Creamer got in on the act, posting a picture of herself on
Twitter Dufnering in the shade of a bougainvilla, a stuffed Pink Panther
Dufnering right alongside her.
"I've never had so much entertainment," McIlroy said. "I was on my own last
night in the room and just going through things. The laughs, it's just so
