Jason Dufner, Dufnering


People will be pleased to know that the latest sports pose craze is much less strenuous on the bod than those that have come before it—and you can thank Jason Dufner for that.

While Tebowing requires you to bend all the way down on one knee and Kaepernicking makes you turn your neck all the way to one side to smooch that bulging bicep of yours (look at that thing!), Dufnering only demands that you sit on your bum. Yep, that's it.

Confused? Let us explain...

Dufnering has come back to life to honor the golfer after he took the win at Sunday's 2013 PGA Championships, causing everyone to revive the famous pose—like these guys and even the official PGA officers.

It first became a thing in March, when the athlete was photographed looking very blasé while attending a class with students at the Salesmanship Youth and Family Center in Dallas, making his sit-down stance viral.

However, Dufner wasn't actually uninterested in what was going on. According to a story that first covered the birth of Dufnering, the athlete was engaging in a "focus activity to help them get ready to learn."

Tracy Cobb, the tournament's director of communications, said, "It's about concentrating, paying attention to breathing. They would stand up and put a beanbag on their heads, using that mental focus. Then we let Jason talk to them about importance of focusing on the golf course and how critical that is for him."
