Jason Dufner preps for his fifth start of the season as he turns his attention toward this week's Honda Classic.
The Auburn Tiger is 8-for-8 at the Honda since PGA National's Champion Course took over hosting duties. That includes a pair of top 20s in two of his last three visits. Getting into contention has been the norm for him here, entering the final round inside the top 12 in 4-of-8 visits. Early in the season, Dufner has been leaning heavily on a hot putter, gaining strokes with the flat stick in each of his last three starts. That has been the weakest part of his game over most of his career but he should big improvement last year. Gamers should continue to ride the hot putter until he shows any sign of slowing down.

He squared two bogey-4s at holes 2 and 8, camouflaged by six circles at 3-5, 9, 15 and 16.

World No. 41 Jason Dufner carded a 5-under-par 32-36=68 in the second round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions to reach the midpoint on 7-under 139, up six spots on the live leaderboard to T6, one back of clubhouse leaders Pat Perez and Chris Stroud.

The 40-year-old opened with a four-birdie two-bogey 71 on 10 (of 15) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.816 strokes off-the-tee and 1.586 tee-to-green, but gaining 2.498 on-the-green. He eked out a 0.092 SGTTG in R2 on 10 fairways and 12 GIR, but continued with the hot putting, gaining 3.308, currently No. 1 in SGP with a cumulative 5.806.. The Ohio native squared a lone bogey-5 at 13 (failed scramble), offset by six circles at holes 3, 6, 8, 9, 14 and 15, three from between 11 and 17 feet. He also knocked in three par-savers from between five and 11 feet.

Jason Dufner has three appearances at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and will return for a fourth attempt this week at the Kapalua Resort.

Dufner twirled a T18 in his 2013 Tournament of Champions debut. That was the year the event was shortened to 54 holes. He would return the next year to battle heavy winds on his way to a solid, solo fifth finish. His latest trip was so fruitful, settling for solo 21st last year. With heavy winds in the forecast this week, Dufner may be at an advantage over most of the field. He's already played in similar conditions and posted a top 5 in the process. Gamers looking for a sleeper should give Dufner a long look this week.
Jan 3 - 9:10 AM

Jason Dufner didn't have his best tee-to-green stuff but still salvaged a 3-under-par during round two of the TOUR Championship, climbing to 5-under 135 at halftime of the season finale.

Dufner made a mess of the opening hole to swallow an early bogey. That started with a poor tee shot and his troubles on the tee lasted most of the round as he split just seven (of 14) fairways, losing 0.391 strokes off-the-tee along the way. Luckily, his flat stick bailed him out on multiple occasions. The first was a 22'6" birdie splash at the par-4 fourth and then he later bombed home a 33'7" birdie putt at the 15th. The Auburn product walked off the course gaining 2.066 strokes gained putting on the round. That was despite a wardrobe malfunction as his pants ripped at some point in the round, which led to some extra work from his caddie (picking the ball out of the cup). With top 10s in each of his last two visits to East Lake, it's not too surprising to see him back in the mix.

Jason Dufner sits at 30th in the FedExCup standings ahead of the playoff finale at this week's TOUR Championship.

Dufner was the last man in the field this week, so he will have quite the uphill battle if he wants to secure the FedExCup. To start, he would need to win this week and have Jordan Spieth finish 29th or worse. That by itself is very improbable, but then he needs more chips to fall his way. With the FedExCup likely out of grasp, Dufner can play stress-free golf this week. To his favor, the Auburn product has finished T20 or better in all five trips to East Lake, including top 10s in his last two visits. That does make Dufner a bit of an interesting sleeper this week in deeper fantasy formats.

Jason Dufner dealt out a 3-under-par 35-33=68 during round one of the Dell Technologies Championship, giving him a good starting hand as he readies for his second lap at TPC Boston.

Dufner is no stranger to quick starts at TPC Boston. He's been inside the top 20 after R1 in 6-of-8 appearances at the event (now 7-of-9). Ball-striking was the name of the game today as he gained 2.687 strokes approaching-the-green. He also added a pair of crucial par-savers to keep the round glued together, first from 11'11" at the 11th and then from 19'8" at the 12th. Starting the week ranked 21st in the FedExCup standings, there is no pressure on Dufner but a good finish would certainly help his cause as he fights toward the big payout at the end of the FedExCup Playoffs.

World No. 34 Jason Dufner does battle in his 10th Wyndham Championship and checks in at 22nd in the FedExCup standings.

The 40-year-old, a pre-tourney 25/1 outright, is 6-for-9 at the Wyndham with three top 25s and two top 10s, with a best of T7 three visits ago in 2012 (68-67-63-69). He's 16-for-19 on the season with 11 top 25s and two top 10s, highlighted by his fifth TOUR title at the Memorial five starts and 11 weeks ago. The Cleveland native chased the win with two MCs -- one at the Scottish Open -- and T14 at The Open, and then a couple of finishes in the 50s, most recently T58 at last week's PGA (74-72-72-73). He ranks 16th on TOUR in SG: Approach-the-Green, 28th in SG: Tee-to-Green and 86th in SG: Putting (0.108), though 130th in SG: Around-the-Green (-0.054).

Jason Dufner coasted to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 31-35=66 during round three of The 146th Open, climbing up to even-par 210 to find a spot just outside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

Playing alongside Branden Grace during his historic round, Dufner had a swell round, himself. Dufner split 10 (of 14) fairways and missed just one green in regulation, today. This rounds could have easily provided fireworks but the flat stick never warmed up (33 putts taken). This score matches his career best in an Open Championship (R2, 2012). Dufner's best finish at The Open is a T22 but he'll have a chance to improve upon that with a good round tomorrow.

First-round co-leader and 36-hole leader Jason Dufner orchestrated a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the weather delayed final round of the Memorial Tournament to post 13-under 275, good for a 3-shot win over Anirban Lahiri and Rickie Fowler and his fifth PGA TOUR title in his 278th career event, first since P1 at the 2016 CareerBuilder 37 starts ago (as 54-hole leader).

There were two weather delays totaling 3 hours, and 35 minutes. After opening in 65-65-77, the Ohio native began in a two-way T3 on 9-under, four back of 54-hole leader Daniel Summerhays. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he was 2-under thru 12 holes, outpacing bogeys at 4, 6 and 8 with birdies at 2, 5, 7, 10 and 12, when play was suspended the first time, trailing playing competitor Fowler by one. When play resumed, the World No. 65 circled 15 and 17 and was in the rough off the tee on 18, 195 yards away when play was suspended again, now leading Fowler by two. When play resumed, the 40-year-old took two swings to get on the surface and then canned a 32'7" bomb for par to claim the trophy. This was his sixth Memorial, with a previous-best T19/2013. It's Dufner's 10th top 25 of the season in 15 starts and second top 10, joining T5 at the Zurich teamed with fellow Auburn alum Patton Kizzire. It's his second come-from-behind win (2013 PGA Championship).

Overnight leader and World No. 65 Jason Dufner labored to a 5-over-par 39-38=77 in the third round of the Memorial Tournament, falling two spots into a three-way T3 on 9-under 207, four back of 54-hole leader and playing competitor Daniel Summerhays, who shot 68.

After opening in twin-65s, the 40-year-old was an 18-hole co-leader and the 36-hole leader by five over Summerhays. He wobbled from the get-go, squaring four straight bogeys on holes 2-5, three on failed scrambles and a 3-putt at the fifth from 12'10", before getting on the board with birdie-4 at seven from 5'0". The Auburn alum missed birdie at 10 from 6'10" and then ate double bogey-7 at 11 after putting his third to the par 5 into the water. He missed another scoring try from 5'1" at 13 and then exchanged birdies at 15 and 17 with bogeys at 16 and 18, the former a 3-jack from 34'0". Dufner landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.648 strokes tee-to-green and 4.799 on-the-green. He recorded a pedestrian 1.909 putts per GIR and needed 33 putts total.

Jason Dufner breezed through Muirfield Village Golf Club with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 during round two of the Memorial Tournament, racing out to a large clubhouse lead on 14-under 130, six clear of his closest competitor at the time he signed his scorecard.

Dufner pelted 17 greens in regulation on day one and his irons may have been even better today, despite hitting three fewer greens. It was the quality that mattered as he gave himself eight birdie looks from inside 11 feet today, converting on four of them. The highlight of the round came from much longer out, though. Just before making the turn, Dufner dunked his 176-yard approach shot at the par-4 18th for an unconventional eagle-2. With all these quality irons shots, it's easy to see how he walked off the course gaining 4.155 strokes approaching-the-green. Dufner is no stranger to pre-cut success at this venue as he positioned himself in solo second back in 2015 before fading to T24. Dufner has 10 36-hole leads/co-leads to his name, and he's converted four of them into victories including his latest, the 2016 CareerBuilder.

Ohio native Jason Dufner dialed up a 7-under-par 31-34=65 during round one of the Memorial Tournament, grabbing a share of the early lead alongside David Lingmerth as play starts to wind down for the day.

Dufner was locked in with his irons and wedges today as he peppered the first 17 greens in regulation. That led to six birdies and an eagle while maintaining a clean card. That all changed at the 18th where he found a greenside bunker on approach, despite being in the fairway off the tee, and swallowed his lone bogey of the round. The story of the day for Dufner was his flat stick, as he sank three putts from 10-to-15 feet and also drained a 23'2" birdie at the par-3 eighth. The Auburn alum walked off the course gaining 2.98 strokes putting on the day. Playing his 17th round at Muirfield Village Golf Club, this goes in the books as his new personal best here (previously 6-under 66 in R1 of 2015 edition).

Jason Dufner settled for a 1-over-par 35-36=71 during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, giving him a two-day total of 5-over 145 to miss the cut on the number.

A total of 72 (of 121) gofers will play the weekend. The golfers that started in the morning on Thursday appear to have gotten the better end of the weather draw, with seven of the top 10 coming from the AM/PM wave. Dufner was unfortunate to be on the wrong side of the draw this week, but still nearly found his way into the weekend, falling right on the number. The closing blow was a double bogey at the par-4 17th. Other notables to MC include: 145- Si Woo Kim, Bryson DeChambeau, Cameron Smith; 146- Pat Perez; 147- Kyle Stanley; 148- Zac Blair, Luke List, Beau Hossler; 150- Jamie Sadlowski (TOUR debut).

Past champ and World No. 63 Jason Dufner orchestrated a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson for a three-day tally of 8-under 202, up 13 places on the live leaderboard to T4. UPDATE: Dufner finished the tournament T13 on 6-under 274 (69-68-65-72).

After opening in 69-68, the 2012 winner began T17 on 3-under, nine back of 36-hole leader Jason Kokrak. He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.326 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.242 approaching-the-green. The 40-year-old squared a lone bogey-4 at 17 (failed sand save), offset by four birdies and eagle-3 at 16 from 6'7". His circles dropped from between six and 12 feet, posting a tidy 1.545 putts per GIR and 2.423 SG: Putting.
