Jason Dufner did score correctly 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 their love fade away.
Let’s find out!
Married Life, Wife And Divorce History
While straightly talking about his divorce may 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 5 May 2012. The couple started dating while they were in college after a mutual friend introduced them in 2009.

The wedding was a private event, attended only by a few invited guests.
The couple was 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 16 March 2015 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 and Jason with the full authority of their two houses.
Even after handing over $2.5 million, Jason stands strong with a net worth of $14 million.
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 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, Tiger Woods for some couple of months. However, Woods’ agent Steinberg labeled these rumors to be zero percent true and vehemently denied it.
During almost three years of married life, the couple did not welcome children. Maybe they were waiting until they were ready to become parents.
