Jason Dufner has found himself in a predicament more common among sports fans than sports professionals: The 2013 PGA Championship winner has a work commitment while his favorite team is playing.

A big-time Auburn fan, Dufner may have to choose between watching his alma mater take on Missouri in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday or competing in the third round of Tiger Woods' World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Rather than sit idly by as the game approached, the man who brought Dufnering to the Internet took to Twitter to ask Woods to adjust the tournament format to ensure he could watch his Tigers.

A few hours later, Woods responded.

With his request denied, Dufner came up with a back-up plan to catch the game while getting in his round.

Instead of merely loaning him his Caddyshack-inspired bag, Daly offered to do Dufner an even bigger favor.
