    3. An effortless Hogan-esque swing...

    4. And a lower lip packed bigger than Lenny Dykstra's.

    5. He's known for his unflinching, stress-free demeanor.

    6. This is how he celebrated his first major championship yesterday — as if he won $5 on a scratch off.

    7. But he is human.

    8. You probably know him from the meme known as Dufnering...

    Which is basically the only golf meme of all time.

    And really caught on among the top players on tour...

    (Luke Donald and Rory McIlroy)

    9. Because EVERYONE loves Jason "Big Daddy" Dufner...

    12. And when he's not busy sticking wedge shots, he spends his downtime trolling his friends on Twitter.

    13. Especially Keegan Bradley...

    And daily trash talking target...

    15. Who to his credit never backs down from Duf's ribbing...

    16. And let us know that Duf Daddy didn't always look so effortless.

    17. Keegan was the second person to congratulate Duf on his victory...

    18. After his beautiful wife Amanda — who got an awesome ass pat on national TV.

    19. This is his wife Amanda...

    20. According to Amanda he loves Rick Ross...

    21. His matte black Dodge Challenger...

    "He is fascinated by animals. He can sit at the zoo for hours just watching one animal."

    23. And his beloved alma mater.

    24. But the Duf hates tomatoes.

    25. So while he might not always be the most expressive or charismatic guy on the course...

    26. Remember, you don't get 50 nicknames without being a fun-loving goofball.

    27. So the Dufman should probably be your new favorite golfer.

    Congrats on your first major title. War eagle!
