We knew Jason Dufner had game. This time in the PGA Championship, the 36-year-old was able to close it out and show the world just how much game he has.
The red shirt on Sunday and the size of the galleries were the same. So, too, in an odd sort of way, was the early departure.
Dufner bogeyed the final two holes Sunday for a 2-under 68 that was good enough to hold off 2003 U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk.
Let the Final Round begin! And what a packed leaderboard it is! Picking a winner won’t be easy.
Jason Dufner, the 36-hole leader, followed a record-tying 63 with a 71 to drop a stroke off the pace.
Adam Scott, Jim Furyk and Matt Kuchar were the closest pursuers, while eight other players were lurking within five shots of the lead.
nd, Ohio made history in Friday’s second round, carding a ‘7 under 63’ which is the lowest round ever at Oak Hill.
If you’re a golfer chasing that first major title, you’ve come to the right place. The list of winners at the PGA Championship is filled with guys who were once in your spiked shoes.
It’s great to see the 2003 U.S. Open champ’s name at the top of the leaderboard. Furyk is too good and has been in contention too often not to have won more majors (despite his painful looking swing!)
When Woods is on, most of his fellow competitors are intimidated. None would admit it, but even solid top-10 golfers seem to lose their confidence when Woods is on. Mickelson is not one of them.
Tiger Woods’ performance on the course once again has dominated golf headlines all season. And rightly so. He comes into this week’s PGA Championship having blown away the field at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational this past weekend.
The baton has officially been passed. And I’m not talking about the U.S. women’s world-record, gold-medal, drought-ending performance in the 4 x 100 meter relay.
If Tiger Woods can recapture his youth, golf could have its next biggest rivalry in Woods-McIlroy.
Rory McIlroy won the 94th PGA Championship at Kiawah Island on Sunday.
Call it a perfect storm, a Red Storm if you will, for 2008 St. John’s graduate and PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley.
