Pittsford, Ny. – Golfers competed in final-round play of the PGA Championship Sunday, and a new name was added to the list of Wanamaker Trophy winners. If you remember, Jason Dufner acutally shot a 63 on Friday, making him only the 24th player to do so in a Major Championship, and today the spotlight was back on him.

During play, today, Dufner matched scores with yesterday’s leader Jim Furyk at every hole on the back nine of Oak Hill. Dufner clinched it after he tapped in for a bogey on the 18th hole to win the last major of the season.

This is the golfer’s first major win, making it even sweeter after he blew a four-shot lead with four holes left two years ago at the PGA Championship in Atlanta.

He started today trailing by one but finished the front nine today with six straight one-putt greens taking the lead for good on number eight. He shot two-under-par 68 to finish a 10-under-par win, and the golfer addressed his famous stoicism out on the course after the victory.
