Jason Dufner provided an upset early in the week, ousting Rickie Fowler 2-and-1 during the first day of this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.
Dufner asserted his authority early and often, draining 9'6" and 7'10" birdie rolls on the par-4 third and par-3 fourth holes. Fowler circled one at the fifth hole to get back to 1-down, but gave it right back two holes later as he missed a short 3'10" par-saving attempt that Dufner chose not to concede. Fowler charged back over the back nine, even getting the match back to all square after a par on the par-4 15th hole. Dufner responded with back-to-back closing birdies, including a 27'5" bomb on the last. There is a lot of golf left to play, but Dufner is off to a good start. Mar 23 - 4:17 PM

Jason Dufner crafted a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to wrap his sixth appearance on 3-under 285, up 19 spots on the live leaderboard to T11. UPDATE: With play completed, Dufner finished in a three-way T11 and ended up T2 in total birdies with 20.

Dufner book-ended a four-birdie second round and two-birdie third round with seven circles on day one and seven again in the finale. His 3-3 finish on Sunday pushed him to 20 birdies for the week, currently leading the field in that category. On the flip side, he ranks T55 in bogeys with 15, including three on Sunday, two on failed scrambles and the other on the par-5 10th after his tee shot found the water. At last check, the 38-year-old finished the week T7 in driving accuracy at 62.50 percent (35/56), T31 in greens in regulation at 63.89 percent (46/72), and a stellar fifth in strokes gained: putting with a cumulative mark of 6.070.
Mar 6 - 4:09 PM

Jason Dufner stalled out in the second round, signing an even-par 34-38=72 to reach the midpoint of the WGC-Cadillac Championship at 4-under 140.

Dufner opened up the day on the back nine and found five bunkers on his way toward three bogeys and a birdie before making the turn at 2-over 38. He tidied things up a bit on his closing nine, finding just one more bunker, and reversing the bogey-birdie ratio. Dufner surprisingly ranks first in strokes gained:putting through two rounds (+4.888), but his typically sharp ball-striking is letting him down thus far. Gamers should expect the putter to regress over the weekend, but his ball-striking should do the opposite.
Mar 4 - 6:27 PM

Jason Dufner carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in round one of this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Dufner is known for his great ball-striking and typically average or even below-average putting. He flipped the script today as he rolled in five putts from outside 17 feet, including a 34'10" birdie and 46'11" birdie on the par-3 ninth and par-4 11th holes, respectively. Dufner owns a fair share of success here at the WGC-Cadillac, as he arrived with three top 20s in five tries. He's well on his way to a fourth.
Mar 3 - 4:39 PM

Jason Dufner rattled off a 2-under-par 35-33=68 to open his week at the Honda Classic.

Dufner started his round sort of like a putting drill, gradually increasing the distance over the first four holes. That included notable birdie rolls from 12'9" and 20'10" on the par-5 third and par-4 fourth holes, respectively. He splashed his tee ball on the par-4 sixth to give one back and dropped another shot the following hole. Usually shaky with the flat stick, Dufner flipped the script today by gaining 3.309 of his 4.686 strokes with the putter. If his typical ball-striking returns tomorrow, then look for him to remain in contention here at PGA National.

Jason Dufner readies for his sixth playing of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am but first since missing the cut in 2011.

The Dufner/Brandt Snedeker duo that teamed to win the unofficial Franklin Templeton Shootout in December both emerged later with official victories. Dufner won in a playoff at the three-course rota CareerBuilder Challenge -- which has a scheduled 54-hole cut like the AT&T -- and Snedeker won the following week at the Farmers. The 38-year-old chased his CBC win with a missed cut (by three) at last week's Phoenix Open, ending a run of T9-T9-P1. His course form at the AT&T adds a bit of uncertainty as well where he's cashed three times in five tries but nothing better than T55 at the rain-shortened 54-hole version in 2009.
Feb 10 - 10:55 AM

With par on the second hole of sudden death, overnight leader Jason Dufner emerged with victory at the CareerBuilder Challenge for his fourth PGA TOUR title and first since the 2013 PGA Championship.

Dufner navigated the TPC Stadium Course with a final-round 2-under-par 37-33=70 to post 25-under 263, matching David Lingmerth who was in the penultimate threesome. The pair matched 4s on the first hole of sudden death at the par-4 18th, Lingmerth with a two-putt version, and Dufner draining a scrambling one-putt par from 12 feet. On the second playing of the hole, Dufner's two-putt par won it after Lingmerth's approach went off the rocks and into the water. After opening in 64-65-64, Dufner began with a two-shot lead over playing partner Jamie Lovemark and by three over Adam Hadwin, who completed the final threesome. The 38-year-old struggled on a birdie-less 1-over first nine, but fought back with three straight birdies on Nos. 10-12. His shot of the round came at the par-3 17th, when he nearly holed his chip shot for birdie from the rocks, marking down par when bogey seemed likely. Dufner's win comes in his 241st career start and improves his record to 2-3 in playoffs.
Jan 24 - 8:12 PM

Overnight leader Jason Dufner rallied to a 8-under-par 29-35=64 in today's third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 23-under 193, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Dufner leads by one over Jamie Lovemark and by three over Adam Hadwin.

Dufner circled nine birdies on Moving Day last week at the Sony en route to a T9, his second consecutive top 10 on TOUR. He bettered that by one on Moving Day on the mainland, carding 10 birdies at La Quinta CC, including five straight and six over his final seven holes. The 38-year-old began Saturday's play with a one-shot lead over Jamie Lovemark after an opening 64 at the Nicklaus Tournament Course and 65 at the TPC Stadium Course. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he squared bogeys at 10 and 15 to sandwich birdies at 11, 13 and 14 to turn 1-under. After the break, Dufner birdied the first before ripping off five straight on Nos. 3-7. He added a walk-off birdie-3 at the ninth for good measure and an inward 29. With 18 holes yet to play, he's already circled 26 birdies.
Jan 23 - 5:22 PM

Overnight quad-leader Jason Dufner fired a 7-under-par 30-35=65 in the second round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to reach the midpoint at 15-under 129, good for the 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Dufner leads by one over Jamie Lovemark and by three over five players.

Following an opening bogey-free 64 on the Nicklaus Tournament Course, Dufner co-lead with three others after day one. Today's lap is low 18 in the clubhouse at the TPC Stadium Course, and low round on the host course over the first two days, besting Adam Hadwin's 66 in round one. His 65 was also matched by playing partner and fellow major-champ Webb Simpson. Dufner used his putter to drop a 14-footer from off the green for a birdie-3 at the first and followed with conventional birdies at two and five from 4'0" and 15'7", respectively. Three more circles followed on holes 7-9, all from inside 11 feet, to turn 6-under. The 38-year-old, who hasn't won since the 2013 PGA, outpaced his first bogey of the week at 10, with birdie-3s at 12 and 14 from between nine and 11 feet. At the time he signed his card, his 16 birdies thru 36 holes leads the field, and he ranks third in putts per GIR at 1.464.
Jan 22 - 6:22 PM

Jason Dufner greeted Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 to grab a share of the 18-hole lead.

Dufner continues with his return to form as he split 12 (of 14) fairways and checkmarked 16 greens in regulation, in true Dufner fashion. Giving himself the maximum amount of birdie-putt opportunities was a necessity as he arrived this week ranked 180th in strokes gained:putting. Dufner will take on the difficult TPC Stadium Course in round two.
Jan 21 - 6:59 PM

Jason Dufner navigated Waialae CC for a final-round 2-under-par 35-33=68 and wrapped his eighth appearance at the Sony Open in Hawaii at 13-under 267.

Dufner dropped three places on the final day to land in a five-way T9 but it's a personal best at the Sony. He began the finale in a six-way tie for sixth, but he was the only one of the six to stay inside the top 10 at day's end. It didn't appear that would be the case from the outset, exchanging three birdies with three bogeys to turn even. The 38-year-old played his inward half in bogey-free 2-under however, circling a 36-foot bomb at the par-3 11th, and adding a two-putt birdie at the par-5 last. This is Dufner's second straight top 10 in as many starts (T9, RSM), despite finishing the week with nine bogeys, a double and ranked 63rd in strokes gained: putting. He did however, circle 24 birdies, T2 in the field, and went fifth in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a cumulative mark of 8.514.
Jan 18 - 12:46 AM

Jason Dufner rode nine birdies to a 5-under-par 34-31=65 on day three of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 11-under 199, up 19 spots on the day to T6.

Dufner flew in under most gamer's radar despite a T9 in his last official start at The RSM Classic and pairing with Brandt Snedeker to win the unofficial Franklin Templeton Shootout five weeks ago. He opened Saturday's play on 6-under (T25), six back of 36-hole leader Snedeker. The 38-year-old swallowed a six on the par-4 second, but bounced-back with birdie-3 from 4'0" at the third. He squared bogey at the sixth, three-putting from 24'11", but responded with four straight, including a 39-footer at the par-4 eighth. Dufner stiffed approaches at 13 and 14 to inside 40 inches, leading to back-to-backs, and chased bogey at 16 with two straight circles on 17 and 18, his eighth and ninth birdies of the day, respectively. His 19 birdies thru 54 holes is T1 in the field in that category.
Jan 17 - 12:44 AM

Jason Dufner is fully exempt on TOUR thru the 2017-18 season via his win at the 2013 PGA Championship, the last of his three victories in 239 career starts.

Once ranked as high as No. 6 in the Official World Golf Ranking during a two-win season in 2012, Dufner is currently No. 134. It's been a precipitous drop primarily due to injuries and off-course issues (divorce). That said, he's showing serious signs of his past self. The 38-year-old went 3-for-4 prior to the holiday break, with one top 10, a T9 at The RSM Classic (67-70-66-69) in his tournament debut. Two weeks ago, teamed with Brandt Snedeker to win the unofficial 12-team Franklin Templeton Shootout by two strokes.

Jason Dufner settled for a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of The RSM Classic to post 10-under 272, good for a nine-way tie for ninth place.

Dufner was one of 37 making their RSM tournament debuts and he ended up sharing first-timer honors with Jamie Lovemark. After opening in 67-70-66, he outpaced two bogeys with three birdies in the finale to put the wraps on his first top 10 of the season on four starts and first since T8 at the AT&T Byron Nelson back at the end of May. The 38-year-old's birdies traveled 23'4", 6'3", and 8'2", respectively, and he dropped shots on the ninth and 18th after missing each green in regulation, two of five on the day. Dufner finished 14th for the week in strokes gained: tee-to-green but 54th in strokes gained: putting, including a -0.558 mark in the finale.

Jason Dufner painted a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-32=66 in today's third round of The RSM Classic to post 9-under 203 thru 54 holes of his tournament debut.

Dufner has not been in contention come Sunday too often of late. The three-time TOUR winner's most recent brush with No. 4 came at last season's The Barclays, where he was T7 after 54 holes, fading to T30 following a 5-over 75 in the finale. Prior to that, he was T15 thru 54 holes at the AT&T Byron Nelson in May and finished T8 with a 4-under 66 on Sunday. That was his last top-10 finish and just his second over his last 31 starts. Thru 54 holes this week, he's seven adrift and in a five-way tie for seventh. Today's loop went blemish-free for the second time this week (R1/67) and was one of just nine on the day (of 87 players). The 38-year-old has totaled just 10 birdies thus far (T46 in the field) but he's T6 in lack of bogeys.
