PhotosJason Dufner's wife Amanda Dufner, 7.0 out of 10 based on 126 ratings
- UPDATE: 05-30-2012:We've been procrastinating on this one for a while. Amanda is the Jason Dufner's fiancee no more. In a wedding just days after the Zurich Classic Amanda Boyd became Jason Dufner's wife. The couple was married at the Fountainview Mansion in Auburn, AL on May 6th capping off an incredible week for Dufner. We'll continue to watch Dufner throughout the summer, and expect to see the new Amanda Dufner on the 18th after any more wins for Jason, and definitely at the Ryder Cup in the fall. Congrats to the newleyweds.
04-30-2012: Jason Dufner won the Zurich Classic yesterday in a playoff with Ernie Els and his fiannce Amanda Boyd was there to congratulate him. As their wedding is mere days away, Jason was understandably focused on that as well as his victory, saying:
It helps with paying for the wedding, obviously. They're a little more expensive than I thought or had imagined. It'll be a big celebration not only for our marriage but also for my first victory out on the Tour.
- You think playing at the Masters is a lot of pressure?
Try playing at the Masters with your wedding date looming less than a month away.
Jason Dufner is feeling that pressure right now. The runner up in the 2011 PGA Championship (the one where he, for lack of a better term, choked away the championship) is back on top of the leader board at the 2012 Masters after two rounds. Once the tournament wraps up Jason and Amanda Boyd will put the finishing touches on their wedding in Auburn. In what will surely make fans of both sides of the rivalry cringe, Jason went to Auburn and Amanda, she went to Alabama. I can safely tell you that type of a relationship is not very common down south! Amanda and Jason have both been involved with charities including Jason's "Birdies for Bama." Amanda has also been involved in a number of PGA Wives charity drives, seen close to home for us when she volunteered to help pack over 2,000 bags of food for the Greater Boston Food Bank at a Massachusetts tournament last September.
