Jason Dufner and Amanda Dufner Are Getting A Divorce
One of golf's most high-profile couples is separating.
After three years of marriage, Jason Dufner and his wife, Amanda, are getting a divorce.
According to documents obtained by the Golf Channel, Amanda filed for divorce on March 16 due to an "irretrievable breakdown of the marriage" and a "complete incompatibility of temperament that the parties can no longer live together." The documents said the two had been separated since February 17.
Amanda will reportedly receive a gross sum of $2.5 million, and Jason will keep their two houses in Auburn, Alabama.
Dufner struggled on the course in 2014 after his breakthrough victory at the 2013 PGA Championship. He missed the cut at the Masters and U.S. Open, finished 51st in the British Open and withdrew from the PGA Championship due to injury.
Overall, he had one second-place finish (a playoff loss to Adam Scott in the Crowne Plaza Invitational) and four top-10 finishes. So far in 2015, his best finish was a 17th place finish at the Honda Classic.
A judge is expected to make a final ruling next month.
