Wikipedia Amanda boyd Dufner Biography Tiger Woods & Amanda Dufner: 5 Fast Facts You Need to KnowAmanda Dufner is the ex-wife of beloved pro golfer, Jason Dufner. A friend introduced Amanda Boyd of Millbrook, Ala. and Jason Dufner of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., when Amanda was a student at the University of Alabama and Jason, a graduate of Auburn University, was playing on the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) tour. Their first date went well, but with Dufner’s hectic schedule, he pretty much kissed her goodnight and disappeared. He did call often, and the two had long conversations, but they did not actually see each other again until both just happened to be in New Orleans for New Year’s Eve. From then on, they were inseparable.

Amanda juggled school and traveling with Jason, completing her schoolwork in hotels while Jason was on the golf course. After graduation in 2010, Amanda had hoped Jason would propose. In fact, it was more than just a hope since a friend slipped up and told her Jason had already bought the ring. “Every time we were going out somewhere, I would get all dressed up just in case that was going to be the night he popped the question,” says Amanda. “But he never did.”

Almost a year passed with no proposal. “I had been planning to propose in early 2011, while we were in Hawaii,” says Jason. “But I found out Amanda knew I had the ring, so the element of surprise was gone. Then my schedule got really busy, and I couldn’t find a time to make it special. Until July.” Amanda joined Jason for a tournament in Philadelphia the week of July fourth, and when Jason missed the cut, he knew he had the perfect opportunity.

The term originated in March 2013 after a photo went public of Dufner slumping without expression while visiting a youth center in Irving Texas. Afterward, Keegan Bradley and several other professional golfers good-naturedly mocked Dufner through Twitter and other social media, and "Dufnering" rapidly became a popular phenomenon.
