What do we know about Dufner? Well, she's a graduate of the University of Alabama, where she went to school for hotel management. A mutual friend introduced the then-Amanda Boyd to Dufner in 2009. They were able to begin dating in earnest after she graduated in 2010 and the two became engaged in 2011 during dinner at a rooftop bar in New York City and were married in 2012.

The 2013 PGA Championship was Jason Dufner's first major win on the tour. Previously, his best finish at a major were two fourth-place ties at the 2012 and 2013 U.S. Open tournaments.
