Jason Dufner wins PGA Championship for 1st major title.
Sun, 11 Aug 2013 23:20:05 GMT —
Jason Dufner has won his first major title with a two-stroke victory over Jim Furyk at the PGA Championship.
Dufner bogeyed the final two holes Sunday for a 2-under 68 that was good enough to hold off the 2003 U.S. Open champion.
The winning score was 10-under 270.
Henrik Stenson finished three shots back.
Dufner made up for the heartache of the 2011 PGA, when he went to the 15th tee with a four-stroke lead in Atlanta.
He dunked that shot in the water, squandered the advantage and lost to Keegan Bradley in a playoff.
There was no such collapse on another warm, sunny day at Oak Hill.
From tee to green, Dufner was nearly perfect. If not for a bit of a shaky putter, the margin would've been even more.
Furyk had played steady golf, unlike when he gave up the lead on the final holes of the U.S. Open last year.
He has two birdies and a bogey on his card, but hasn't been able to keep up with Dufner's precision.
Tiger Woods wrapped up his tournament with a par 70 that left him 4-over par.
British Open champ Phil Mickelson shot a 2-over 72 to end a very forgettable week at 12-over par.
