Jason Dufner’s Asian swing continues, and so does the silly season of golf. From traditional costumes in Shanghai to teeing it up in 2,000-year-old amphitheaters in Turkey, we now have the Duf Daddy living it up in Thailand.

Dufner is currently playing the Chiangmai Golf Classic on the Asian Tour, where he’s the biggest draw in the field and playing pretty well (-6 through two rounds, tied for fifth place). This all comes after he met some elephants:

One practical joker even snagged the hat of Dufner’s head:

Dufner so enjoyed his time with those creatures that he took his wife, Amanda, for an elephant ride.
