Well, this almost came out of the clear blue sky. Arguably, the most popular couple on the PGA Tour is getting separated as Jason and Amanda Dufner are getting a divorce according to GolfChannel.com.
Jason, as we know, rose to fame and grew a huge fanbase for his victory at the 2013 PGA Championship and for his cool, chill nature off the course. His cool attitude properly dubbed him “The Duf” and has been a fan favorite over the last few years.
His wife Amanda also grew increasingly popular after she was seen at the PGA Championship. Of course after the Duf won the tournament, he did the now famous butt tap on Amanda which also grew the popularity of the two.
Amanda has since enjoyed getting plenty of eyes on her Instagram page, hoping that she would post a picture of herself in a bikini which she has done plenty of times. She’s also closely followed on other social media and has been arguably the most popular wife on Tour among the men.
According to GolfChannel.com, the two were separated on February 17th and now it’s official. According to the court settlement filed by Amanda, there has been an “irretrievable breakdown of the marriage” and there was “a complete incompatibility of temperament that the parties can no longer live together.”
Amanda is suppose to get a whopping sum of $2.5 million while Jason will retain ownership of both his home in Auburn, AL and his home that is currently under construction.
Now, before you come out and say “Who cares?” or “Why is this a big deal?”, you got to realize how popular these two were. A very popular couple thanks to some cameramen and your viewing eyes.
So, it is kinda a big deal, especially since they were only married for three years. Plus, Jason has a big time following of fans and for good reason, the dude is freakin’ awesome so you know this is a big thing for his fans.
Let’s hope once this all gets settled, Jason will be back and playing well. Because, he sure was on the rise after that PGA Championship win.
One thing’s for sure, and we’ll keep this between you and me, I am NOT getting married. I think it’s just too much. I’ll stick with girlfriends (Which I don’t have at the moment. I’m such a geek) thank you!
Oh, and the Duf’s next tournament? Some event called “The Masters” I think. It has some golf course called “Augusta National”? Does that ring a bell at all? Because I have no clue!
