As the reigning PGA Champ, Dufner was in charge of the menu for this year’s dinner at Churchill Downs. He went with some southern flair — and had some fun with the names of the dishes. Served up were roasted beet and chèvre salad, "Alabama slammer" and "butt-rubbed" filet mignon. That last item was, of course, inspired by Dufner’s wife, Amanda, who received a nice little "butt rub" from her hubby after he won last year.
Unlike the champions dinner they hold annually at the Masters, this gathering, apparently, welcomed esteemed outside guests. Golf-nut and St. Louis Blues star T.J. Oshie was on hand for the dinner, and thoroughly enjoyed his opportunity to meet "fellow Americans" Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson.
