Jason Dufner plays table tennis in China
Series: Golf Buzz

Reigning PGA Champion Jason Dufner is in China this week to play in the Volvo China Open -- an event on the European Tour's International schedule.
As is often the case before events on the European Tour, there are exhibitions before the tournament begins to promote the event and expose players to the local culture.
That was the case on Tuesday, as you can see in the picture above tweeted out by the European Tour (@European_Tour), when Ian Poulter and Dufner took part in a table tennis match.
Well... Poulter took part in the match. Dufner looks like he's enjoying himself, no doubt, but with the body language, he looks like a kid watching a baseball game who showed up with his mitt hoping to catch a foul ball. Dufner, meanwhile, showed up to watch a table tennis match with his paddle.
Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) sent out this tweet:

It all reminded us of another great Dufner picture from when he was in China last October:

And, of course, no Dufner exhibition photo could ever beat the photo that made Dufner a cult hero and a hashtag -- #Dufnering.
