Jason Dufner discusses his dream foursome, pink golf balls and 'Dufnering'

F4b63de0de7b48feb9e7f1701ce30288-0 Jason Dufner sat down with's Krysten Peek in California after his opening round of the World Challenge and discussed his first hole-in-one (with a pink golf ball!), tweeting with Tiger and his dream foursome.
The highlights from the Q&A portion. First hole in one: "I was 13 at a public golf course in Cleveland called Sleepy Hallow. I hit a 5-wood from about 170 yards on No. 2. There was one other guy I met on the first tee. He was lucky. I think it was a pink golf ball too. (Asked if he still uses pink golf balls) No, pink golf balls are out." On Dufnering blowing up: "I was just sitting there screwing off kind of day-dreaming. People got a hold of it to kind of make fun of me a little bit and jab at me, but then it blew up. It's the most remarkable thing I've ever seen. I only did it once. It's a one-time thing." On tweeting Tiger this week: "I know he looks at it here and there. I felt like I maybe could get a response out of him. I pretty much knew what the response was going to be. It was just all in fun. People actually thought I was serious about it. It was worth a shot. I'm very privileged to be playing this event in California this week, but I definitely wish I could be in Georgia watching Auburn play for an SEC Championship." Dream foursome: "My dad, Ben Hogan and my grandpa." Favorite course: "Augusta National. That event has a lot of history. It's a unique course and really tests every aspect of your game." Keegan Bradley and the PGA Championship: "Lucky." On winning his own PGA Championship: "It's pretty neat. To work as hard as I have and always think about just playing in these major events, much less win one. It really hasn't even set in yet to have your dreams fulfilled and become a reality."
