Saturday provides quite the pickle for reigning PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner.

The proud Auburn alum is slated to play in the no-cut Northwestern Mutual World Challenge hosted by Tiger Woods, where the last-place finisher in the 18-man field will earn well into six figures. At the same time, however, the Auburn-Missouri SEC title game is slated for a 4 p.m. ET kickoff with a berth in the BCS national title game potentially on the line.

Play in the golf tournament typically lasts until 6 p.m. ET each day, so what's a die-hard War Eagle fan like Dufner to do?

First, you try to appeal to the tournament organizer.

"Dear Mr @TigerWoods I petition the event this week to play 36 holes Thurs and Friday, so I can watch my beloved Auburn play for SEC champ thx," Dufner tweeted on Monday night.

Woods tweeted: "@JasonDufner Petition denied" so Dufner went the "Caddyshack" route. He tweeted:

Woods should appreciate Dufner's plight. When Woods was in Turkey last month, he acknowledged getting up at 3:30 a.m. local time during a tournament so he could watch Stanford, his alma mater, defeat Oregon.
