First, there was Tebowing. Then Kaepernicking.

Now, we can add Dufnering, the art of taking a seated, completely lifeless photo of yourself, a la 2013 PGA Champion Jason Dufner, to the list.

Dufner won his first major title on Sunday, capturing the PGA Championship with a 10-under par performance at the the Oak Hill Country Club, but it didn't seem to faze him. On the most important 18th green of his career Dufner was, well, Dufnering -- cool as the other side of the pillow.

The craze began in March when someone snapped a motionless, zoned-out photo of Dufner at a school charity event. Soon after, fellow golfers Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson and Rickie Fowler took to social media with their own interpretations. Turns out they were making fun of the next PGA champ.

"Just caught me at a perfect time," Dufner told the Huffington Post in March. "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."

Just Dufner being Dufner.
