Professional Golfer Jason Dufner's Wedding Confirmed His Girlfriend As Wife, But Why Did They Divorce?

Jason Dufner did score perfectly in the context of his married life, but it seems like the ball bounced back from the hole. Weddings take place between people who love each other but what happened between Jason and his wife that made love fade away. Don’t know why? Then let’s find out.

Married Life, Wife and Divorce History:

Without straightly talking about his divorce and leave you perplexed, let’s start right from the top and make sense of everything. Jason was married to his longtime girlfriend Amanda Boyd on May 5, 2012. The couple started dating while they were in college after they were introduced by a mutual friend in 2009. After about 2 years of dating, Dufner asked Amanda to be Mrs. Dunfer while having a dinner in New York City in 2011.

The couples were considered as of the golden couple in the golf industry, however, as time went by the golden color started to fade, and in less than three years the husband and wife were on their way to divorce.

Jason’s wife Amanda filed for divorce in Alabama on March 16 citing “Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage and a complete incompatibility of temperament that the parties can no longer live together.” The now ex-couples settled their divorce settlements with Amanda having $2.5 million dollars Jason with the full authority of their two houses.

Even after handing over $2.5 million dollars, Jason, 39, stands strong with a net worth of $14 million dollars. This is the total number including his PGA Tour earning of this year which was $2.35 million. Shortly after his divorce with former wife Jason has recently put up his four-bedrooms Auburn house on sale with a price tag of $539,900. This is the house in which he used to live with Amanda. He previously bought the house for $457,000 in 2010.

Following the divorce, news came that Amanda was allegedly dating master golfer and the infamous Playboy Tiger Woods for some couple of months. However, Woods’ agent Steinberg labeled these rumors to be zero percent true and vehemently denied it.

During an almost three years of married life, the couple did not produce any children. Maybe they were holding it back till they were ready to become parents but who knew that it would go this wrong. Currently, Jason is all focused on his PGA Tour and building his career.
