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.

Jason Dufner had zero trouble en route to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 on the Plantation Course at Sea Island Resort in today's opening round of The RSM Classic.

This marks Dufner's debut in the tournament, but he performed as if he's never missed an edition. He failed to find only one of the 14 fairways and one greens in regulation today en route to four par breakers, the last an eagle-3 at the 18th hole where he concluded the round. Two of his three birdies also disappeared on par 5s. He'd sign his card in a massive logjam at T10 but only two strokes behind overnight leader Kevin Kisner.

Jason Dufner detours to Saint Simons Island, Georgia, for his debut at this week's RSM Classic.

Dufner has made 238 career starts on the PGA TOUR but will make his first at Sea Island Resort’s Seaside Course during this week's event. His 2014-15 season was a disappointment as he finished without a podium finish for the first time since 2010. Dufner has started fresh with a 2-for-3 record during the wraparound portion of the schedule. Gamers should keep watching for progress, but there is no real sign of a true turnaround in the near future.

Jason Dufner embarks on his 10th PGA TOUR season at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, his first appearance in the tournament since 2007.

For the first time since 2008, Dufner will begin a PGA TOUR season ranked outside the top 100 in the Official World Golf Ranking (No. 109). To be fair, he's battled thru injuries the past couple of seasons --where he finished 88th in FedExCup points in 2015 and 90th in 2014-- and agreed to a divorce settlement with his wife following the Valspar Championship in March of this year. Technically, this will be the 38-year-old's debut in the Shriners at TPC Summerlin, having played here last in 2007 when it was known as the Frys.com Open benefiting Shriners Hospitals for Children and finishing T50. Dufner, whose last action was the first week of September at the Deutsche Bank Championship (T60), is exempt on TOUR thru 2017-18 via his win at the 2013 PGA Championship, the last of his three titles in 235 career events.

Jason Dufner turns his attention to the Deutsche Bank Championship at the par-71 TPC Boston, and enters the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs 82nd in the FEC standings.

Dufner qualified for the postseason last year but did not play due to a neck injury and ended the season 90th in the FEC standings. He was T5 after 54 holes in the 2013 Deutsche Bank, opening in 66-66-66, but closed in even-par 71, settling for T9. It was his second top 10 in the event during the Playoffs era on five starts, including a T2 in 2009, where he back-doored the joint runner-up spot with a final-round 6-under 65. The 38-year-old has 16 made cuts on 20 starts this season with two top 10s, one this calendar year (season-best T8, AT&T Byron Nelson). He's cashed in eight straight starts, including a disappointing T30 at last week's Barclays, where he was T7 thru 54 holes (66-68-69), but concluded with a 5-over 75.

Jason Dufner conjured up a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of The Barclays for a three-day total of 7-under 203, four adrift of co-leaders Sangmoon Bae and Jason Day.

Dufner began his round at 6-under (T2) and one back of 36-hole leader Bubba Watson. Playing two groups ahead of the final pairing, Dufner opened with a two-putt par at the first before squaring a double bogey-6 at the second after missing the green in regulation and then three-putting from 35'6". He bounced back with birdies at Nos. 3 (from 14'2") and 4 (5'6") and added a nine-footer at the par-3 sixth. The 38-year-old missed his last three GIR on his outward half, but saved par each time to turn 1-under. He converted his last birdie at the 10th from 16'3" prior to squaring bogey at the par-4 13th, just his third bogey of the week, T1 in the field in that category thru 54 holes. Dufner entered the Playoffs ranked 103rd in the FedExCup standings and projects 57th with 18 holes remaining.
