Jason Dufner stops getting his ball out of the hole because he ripped his pants

September 22, 2017

Jason Dufner already had an uphill battle in order to win the FedEx Cup, but it got even harder for the 2013 PGA champion late in his round Friday at the Tour Championship.

After posting a first-round two-under 68 at East Lake, Dufner had it rolling again in his second round, playing his first 15 holes in four under. But as he got near the finish, the Golf Channel broadcast picked up on Dufner no longer retrieving his ball from the hole when it would go into the cup. The first assumption was that it must have been an injury, potentially derailing not only his round but his chances of finishing the weekend. This was not the case.

The cameras finally provided a glimpse of what was really wrong... Dufner had ripped his pants. WARNING - GRAPHIC:

Just a little wardrobe malfunction for Duf, who actually attempted a nice little curtsy prior to forgoing reaching down for the ball altogether.

This of course, produced some hilarious references on Twitter:

Despite the unfortunate situation, Dufner was able to finish with a three-under 67 and sits at five under for the tournament in a tie for eighth.
