Lindsey Vonn is making headlines at the British Open in Scotland, but not because of her famous boyfriend, world #1 golfer Tiger Woods.

Just for #Dufnering.

Vonn posted this photo on Instagram showing herself, Fred Couples' girlfriend Nadine Moze and PGA pro Jason Dufner relaxing in his signature pose:

The Dufnering phenomenon, in case you missed it, began in March, when a photo of the golfer slouched in a classroom during a charity trip emerged.

Check out the original picture below, via a Tweet by Keegan Bradley (also a PGA pro), who gave his friend Dufner a well-deserved ribbing over it:

We've added plenty of alley-oop dunks to our THG Sports section, but this one would give even LeBron James and teammates a run for their money.

It involves seven guys, a swimming pool, a slide, a trampoline and a rapid-fire series of passes culminating in an epic finishing, tomahawk dunk.

How many tries do you think it took them to execute this? And were any injuries sustained in the process? We may never know for sure.

But check out the summer boredom awesomeness below!

He's a winner in the swimming pool and, apparently, in the dating pool.

Record-breaking Olympian Michael Phelps walked the ESPY Awards red carpet last night with Golf Channel personality Win McMurry as his date, the same blonde beauty for whom he caddied in May.

"Thanks @MichaelPhelps - great caddy work this week! Fun times," she Tweeted at the time, along with a photo of the pair.

Under fire for off-the-field actions yet again, Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel admitted yesterday that it's time for him to grow up.

Maziel answered every question thrown his way during a 30-minute Q&A at SEC Media Day yesterday, some of which were even about football.

He said he largely enjoys the spotlight that comes with winning the Heisman Trophy last year, even if it includes scandalous headlines at times.

The 20-year-old sophomore and Texas A&M quarterback's most recent misstep came last weekend when he attended the Manning Passing Academy.

Jack Hoffman wasn't just among the winners at the 2013 ESPY Awards. He was the one whose "Moment" was named the very best of the sports year.

You may not have heard of Jack, but that's part of what makes it so special.

A seven-year-old cancer patient, he got the opportunity of a lifetime when the Nebraska football team put him in for a play during its spring game.

What happened, as you can see below, left not a dry eye in the house:

Like fellow ESPY winner Robin Roberts, Hoffman was dealt a tough hand, but through sports, he was able to find some unforgettable, uplifitng moments.

Keep it up, Jack ...

Robin Roberts received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2013 ESPYs last night, and it's hard to think of anyone more deserving of the honor.

Watch her emotional speech after winning the honor below:

Two decades ago, Jim Valvano made his legendary acceptance speech after winning it, setting the stage for the best part of the ESPY Awards.

Fittingly, the late college basketball coach's great efforts raising cancer awareness helped impact so many lives, including this year's recipient, Roberts.

Robin, who survived breast cancer in 2008 and MDS (a rare blood and bone marrow disease) recently, is courageous, as well as talented and inspiring.

Here's hoping she continues to be for many years to come.

If you've ever thought "I'm going to do something stupid if Twitter tells me to", let this be a cautionary tale. Or, you know, don't even consider basing a decision on thousands of faceless strangers in the first place.

This man is named Dylan McCue-Masone. Dylan tweeted during last night's All-Star Game that he would run out onto the field if he got 1,000 retweets.

Now, I'm a fan of twitter, and I know how exciting it can be when someone RT's you (well I've heard it's exciting) but surely it wouldn't cause someone to do something on the edge of legality, right?

New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey recently filmed New Yorkers answering questions about Matt Harvey ... unaware they were talking to Matt Harvey.

In a skit for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Harvey conducted man-on-the-street interviews, asking people for their thoughts on the second-year pro.

It went exactly as you think, by virtue of the fact that we're sharing it, and proves that even die-hard NYC sports fans aren't as savvy as they think.

Then again, it's the Mets. Who even knows what their record is*?

The highlight has to be the guy blissfully ignorant of who he's talking to ... while actually wearing a Matt Harvey jersey and saying Harvey is his favorite player.

* - 41-50, 11 games out of first place. No one can blame Harvey, though. The 24-year-old is 7-2 with a 2.35 ERA and just made his first All-Star team.
