Jason Dufner serves up 'butt-rubbed' filet mignon at Champions Dinner
Jason Dufner's love of food has been well-documented. We already know how much he loves tuna melts, late-night nachos and Reuben sandwiches. None of those delicacies, however, would be fitting for something as formal as the PGA Champions dinner.
Jason and Amanda Dufner made news last year with a now-infamous butt-rub. This time around, he's bringing the butt-rub to the dinner menu.
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.
