Each season on the PGA Tour often has a recurring theme. A couple of years ago, there were a deluge of playoffs, last year we saw some tremendous final-round comebacks, and it seems like this year’s winners have previously barely made a cut all year.

At the Byron Nelson Championship, we saw another example of that with Sang-Moon Bae.

Thanks to Deadspin for posting this masterpiece of Jason Dufner, the winner of the 2012 HP Byron Nelson Championship. Apparently, Dufner was in the Dallas area for a kick-off luncheon for the 2013 event. He also spent some time with students at the Salesmanship Youth and Family Center. He’s obviously having the time of his life. Could he be any happier to be there??

Naturally, this calls for a caption contest. Go for it.
