Jason Dufner was caught by a rogue camera in a comically childlike pose while paying a visit to a Texas elementary school classroom back in March. It went viral then, and it's going viral again after the professional golfer picked up a PGA Championship win over the weekend.

In the now-famous picture, a teacher is sitting in a chair speaking to the children – all of whom are paying rapt attention – as Dufner sits slumped over against a world-map decorated wall with his hands under his butt, and his legs stretched out in front of him while wearing an immensely bored expression.

Dufner hasn’t distanced himself from the representation of him that’s now been turned into a meme, a hashtag and the last posing craze since “Tebowing” made the rounds. “Just caught me at a perfect time,” Dufner told the Huffington Post. “The funny thing about it is the photo taken represents how I act all the time. It was a sheer moment of ‘Jason Dufner‘ by whoever captured the moment for the 30 seconds I checked out.”

“They were talking about focusing and relaxation,” Dufner added. “They have some big test coming up for the class on ways to relax and concentrate. And I guess I took it to another level.”

Dufner's buddies and fellow pro golfers were quick to rib the 36-year-old athlete, posting images of themselves “dufnering” to their social media pages. Among the jokesters were Rory McIlroy, Keegan Bradley, Rickie Fowler, Luke Donald and Bubba Watson.
