Jason Dufner, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy others pose for hilariously awkward pic


Ha. Now that’s gold. In Shanghai, China for the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament this week, Jason Dufner, Justin Rose, Ian Poulter, Phil Mickelson, and Rory McIlroy posed for a photo with a couple of HSBC executives before the event.
And hoo boy, was it awkward.

Sure, maybe not as awkward as the photos of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy that were snapped at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in the United Arab Emirates way back in January, but take a look at their faces, especially Dufner. Once again, like when he spawned the Dufnering craze, it looks like there are about a million other places he would prefer to be at that moment.

Hilarious. In fact, they all kind of seem a bit embarrassed by the ridiculous get-ups they are wearing, except for Phil, who seems quite pleased, even proud, with his role in the entire scene (via Business Insider):


Golfers from both Europe and the U.S. are having a grand old time during their visit to Asia. Rory McIlroy banging on drums, Miguel Ángel Jiménez using chopsticks to hold his cigar and Rickie Fowler documenting how he and some of his PGA Tour pals, including Bubba Watson, Keegan Bradley and others visiting a “fish spa” are just some of the highlights. Good stuff.
