Jason Dufner

Dufner was born in Cleveland, Ohio, moved to the Washington, D.C., area at 11, and to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, when he was 14. It was there that he started playing golf at age 15. He competed for St. Thomas Aquinas High School during his sophomore, junior and senior years.
Was a walk-on at Auburn University, where he won three times and was an Honorable Mention All-American in 1997. He graduated from Auburn in 2000 with a bachelor's degree in economics. In 1998, he played in the final of the U.S. Amateur Public Links at Torrey Pines, falling to Trevor Immelman, 3 and 2.
He turned professional in 2000 and played on the Golden Bear Tour. He had no status on the Korn Ferry Tour to begin the 2001 season, so he Monday-qualified his way into the Hershey Open, where he finished T-12th, and earned a spot at the Wichita Open, which he won.
He got his initial PGA Tour card via a 10th-place finish on the 2003 Korn Ferry Tour money list, at $237,636. After missing the cut in his first four appearances on the tour, he made 20 cuts in his final 22 events, including 10 top-10s. He had three consecutive top-5s twice that season.
2005 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 28; Rounds Played - 81; In Money - 13; Top-10 Finishes - 3; Scoring Average - 71.40 (Rank 81st); Money - $97,435 (Rank 59th); Best Finish - T-3rd, Scholarship America Showdown.
2006 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 24; Rounds Played - 81; In Money - 20; Top-10 Finishes - 7; Scoring Average - 70.18 (Rank 8th); Money - $310,666 (Rank 8th); Best Finish - 1st, LaSalle Bank Open.
Dufner retained his Tour card with non-exempt status in 2008 due to finishing 140th on the money list in 2007. When he ranked 184th on the money list in 2008, he participated in two stages of Qualifying School, making it through at PGA West in La Quinta with five of his six rounds in the 60s to finish T-11th. Since then, he has retained his Tour card via the money list.
2011 Notes: He had two playoff losses, first to Mark Wilson at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, then to Keegan Bradley at the PGA Championship. His season included a career-high in earnings, surpassing the $3-million mark. He played in all four PGA Tour FedExCup Playoff events, finishing 25th in the FedExCup rankings.
2012 Notes: He won two titles, one at the Zurich Classic in a playoff over Ernie Els, and a month later at the HP Byron Nelson. He was one of the hottest players in golf in the spring and summer. Following his pair of wins, he finished runner-up at the Crowne Plaza Colonial and 4th at the U.S. Open. After the 2011 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, he was 80th in the world ranking; before the 2012 Tour Championship, he was 6th. He finished 14th in the FedExCup Playoffs and 4th on the money list with eight top-10 results. Was one of the steadiest players for the USA in his 2012 Ryder Cup debut, posting a 3-1-0 record at Medinah C.C. Was one of only three Americans to win in the Sunday singles matches, defeating Peter Hanson, 2-up. He finished 2nd at the WGC-HSBC Champions, using a local caddie.
2013 Notes: Dufner joined the European Tour, and in his first two starts finished T-9th at the Abu Dhabi Championship and Qatar Masters. He didn't have another top-10 until the U.S. Open. With a final-round 67 that included a triple-bogey at the 15th hole, he climbed from 25th to 4th place and finished four shots behind winner Justin Rose. Almost two months later, he finished T-4th at the WGC-Bridgestone, followed by his two-shot win at the PGA Championship. Dufner won the major at age 36 years, 4 months and 15 days in his 193rd PGA Tour start. He became the sixth golfer to shoot 63 in a major and win, joining Johnny Miller (1973 U.S. Open), Jack Nicklaus (1980 U.S. Open), Raymond Floyd (1982 PGA Championship), Greg Norman (1986 British Open) and Tiger Woods (2007 PGA Championship). He finished the year ranked 19th in the FedExCup standings and 16th on the money list. Played in his first Presidents Cup and posted a 3-1-0 record in the USA's three-point victory.
2014 Notes: Dufner entered the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship trailing by two shots, but carded a final-round, four-over-par 76 that led to a T-9th finish. He lost in a playoff to Adam Scott at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. He announced at Bridgestone that he had been suffering from neck pain since the Masters and thought it was related to a prior shoulder injury. However, after an MRI on July 25, doctors discovered two bulging discs in his neck. Despite the pain, he defended his PGA Championship crown. He took a break after that, missing the FedExCup Playoffs and declining his spot on the USA Ryder Cup team. He finished the year 90th in the FedExCup rankings and 61st on the money list. Returned to play at the Handa Perth International, and finished the year with a T-7th at the Asian Tour's Chiangmai Classic.
2015 Notes: Dufner began the year healthier and slimmer. He finished T-10th at the WGC-HSBC Champions. His next top-10 was a T-8th at the AT&T Byron Nelson. Finished the year 88th in the FedExCup rankings and 101st on the money list.
2016 Notes: Finished T-9th at the RSM Classic, his first top-10 finish since a T-8th in late May at the AT&T Byron Nelson. Teamed with Brandt Snedeker to win the Franklin Templeton Shootout in mid-December with a final-round, 11-under-par 61. Finished T-9th at the Sony Open in Hawaii and a week later claimed his fourth career PGA Tour title at the CareerBuilder Challenge in sudden death over David Lingmerth. Took a two-stroke lead into the final round at 23-under, but was caught after 72 holes by Lingmerth, who posted a bogey-free 7-under-par 65. In sudden death, a clutch seven-foot putt for par at the first extra hole, No. 18, sent the pair back to the 18th tee for a second extra hole. After Lingmerth's approach found the water hazard, Dufner's par secured the win. His first top-10 after the victory was a T-6th at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational, then a T-8th at the U.S. Open. Finished the year with a T-8th finish at the Tour Championship. Dufner totaled 28 PGA Tour starts for the year, making 25 cuts and posting six top-10s. Finished 19th in the FedExCup rankings and 30th on the money list.
2017 Notes: Didn't begin his year until the SBS Tournament of Champions, where he finished 21st. His first top-10 was at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans as he finished T-5th with partner Patton Kizzire. Overcame a four-shot deficit on the final day, shooting 68 to win the Memorial by three shots over Rickie Fowler and Anirban Lahiri. Became just the second Ohio native to win the Memorial, joining tournament-host Jack Nicklaus, who won in 1977 and 1984. Made it to the FedExCup Playoffs for the ninth time, and reached all four Playoffs events. Ended his season ranked 30th in the FedExCup standings.
