Remember #Dufnering? (Refresh your memory with the photos here)

Well, now Twitter has a new trending golf hashtag.

Say hello to #Henleying.

While #Dufnering involved a seated, lazy pose, #Henleying requires a little more skill. Rickie Fowler first posted the photo of fellow PGA Tour player Russell Henley balancing a driver on his chin Monday on his Instagram page (@therealrickiefowler).

(Henley has other talents, too. Check out this video of him playing "Jimi Thing" by Dave Matthews Band on guitar).

After the photo was Instagramed and then immediately tweeted via @RickieFowlerPGA, golf fans across Twitter started posting photos of themselves trying their hand at what is now been coined #Henleying.

For the record, I tried #Henleying and was somewhat successful, balancing a 7-iron on my chin for about 2 seconds.
