What is a silver fox?
Per Dictionary.com: "A silver fox is an older man, generally with gray or graying hair, who is considered attractive, charming, and classy."

The Duf is a quintessential SilverFox. Gifted on the golf course, the 2013 PGA Tour Championship winner is a gentleman on and off the course. Dufner’s laid-back, uber-relaxed personality has led to the rise of the term ‘Dufnering’ and good-natured ribbing from his peers on the tour.
