WATCH: Jason Dufner splits trousers in Tour Championship

Jason Dufner’s might have climbed the leaderboard at the Tour Championship but his second round will be remembered for splitting his trousers.

The 40-year-old, in an effort to conceal the incident, didn’t retrieve his ball from the cup at the 16th and 17th holes which alerted the cameras.

Sky Sports’ Butch Harmon initially believed the former PGA Championship winner might have picked up a hamstring injury.

However, when the American picked up his ball at the final hole after completing his second round, everyone realised just what had happened.

Despite the embarrassing mishap with his trousers, Dufner managed to card a respectable three-under 67 at East Lake to leave him two shots off the lead shared by Justin Thomas, Webb Simpson and Paul Casey.
