After Deadspin posted this legendary picture of Jason Dufner hanging out with kids at a charity event in Irving, Texas, #Dufnering has become a trending meme on the internets. Here are some of the best from the pros, along with others around the Twittersphere…

Sarah Kemp: formerly "the next Karrie Webb".

It should come as little surprise, given the idiosyncrasies of Royal Melbourne’s test, that an Australian should lead the way after the opening round of the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open.

Few, however, could have anticipated that it would fall to New South Wales native Sarah Kemp to lead the field into the tournament’s second day.

Yani bets, she shoots, she scores!

If I were a betting woman, I’d put my money on Yani Tseng every time — especially if she’s betting on herself. The 22-year-old from Taiwan took full advantage of moving day in the third round and shot a bogey-free, six-under 66 at Grand Cypress, matching the low round of the tournament.

The World No. 1 got off to a slow start in the first two rounds of the LPGA’s season-ending CME Group Titleholders, carding a four-over 76 on Friday (albeit in very, very tough conditions) for a combined two-over at the midway point.

Before teeing off on Saturday morning — in an effort to give herself some motivation — Yani made a $100 wager with her caddie, Jason Hamilton, that she would shoot better than three-under.

Sandra Gal hopped on the birdie train on Friday

Sandra Gal rolled in five birdies in the last eight holes to fire a five-under 67 for a one-shot lead over Amy Yang at the Avnet LPGA Classic in Mobile, Alabama. Gal, who won the Kia Classic last month, posted a two-day total of seven-under. After the round, she popped by the Royal Wedding Reception at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear. I found this picture, via the LPGA’s website, rather humorous:

Brittany Lincicome and Stacy Lewis didn’t let the sweltering heat in the desert impact their games on Thursday afternoon during the first round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Playing in the afternoon wave when temperatures reached above 100 degrees, Lincicome and Lewis shot a pair of excellent six-under 66s to tie for the lead at the LPGA’s first major.

Nice legs...I mean, swing.

Coming off her first LPGA victory at last week’s Kia Classic, Sandra Gal teed it up at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, the first major of the season, and basically picked up right where she finished four days ago. Apparently the adrenaline and extra media requests that go along with winning haven’t affected Gal. At least yet. The German, among those that teed off in the morning wave, held the lead for part of the day, firing a five-under 67 at Mission Hills. She’s tied for third after one round.
