Major sports trophy and a doggy-bed with bling.
According to Brian Wacker of PGATour.com, hours after Jason Dufner won the PGA Championship, he was back home in Auburn, Alabama and celebrating with about 25 of his friends. When the group decided they wanted some late-night food, they went to a local Taco Bell...
