PITTSFORD, N.Y. — 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.
