Jason Dufner patched together an even-par 36-34=70 in today's final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational for a four-day total of 9-under 271, up one into a four-way T6, eight back of champion and 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.
This was the 39-year-old's eighth appearance and third top 10 joining runner-up finishes in 2014 (playoff) and 2012. He began the final frame on 9-under in solo seventh, three shy of Spieth. The Ohioan landed eight (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation for 2.143 SGTTG. He circled just three for a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR and a disappointing -2.029 in SGP. Dufner squared the fifth, sixth and 15th all on failed scrambles. He settles for his fourth top 10 of the season on 18 starts and first since his playoff win at the CareerBuilder back in January.

Two-time runner-up Jason Dufner tossed up a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in today's third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to reach the three-quarter pole on 9-under 201, up two places to solo seventh with play still in progress.

Unfortunately, the 39-year-old's lone blemish came on his final hole. After pulling his tee shot on the par-4 18th left and into the trees, he was forced to punch-out and was ultimately unable to save par from 13'3". It put a cap on a one-birdie one-bogey 35 but the Auburn alum earlier had realized a four-birdie first-half 31. In total, he striped nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.617 putts per GIR. Dufner's split featured four from inside of 10 feet with a long of 21'5" at the par-3 eighth.

Jason Dufner dialed in his putter during the first round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, carding a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to sit just two strokes off the early pace set by Bryce Molder.

Dufner entered the event ranked just 168th in strokes gained putting, but managed to gain 66 percent of his strokes with the flat stick today (2.585 of 3.870 total). The Auburn product was uncharacteristically sloppy off the tee, missing nine (of 14) fairways and landing in bunkers off the tee on four occasions. Luckily his putter came to play, rolling in a pair of birdie bombs from just outside 23 feet. If Dufner can maintain this pace on the greens, his reliable ball-striking will surely come around as the week progresses.

Jason Dufner coasted to a bogey-free, 3-under-par 32-35=67 during round two of the AT&T Byron Nelson, climbing to 7-under 133 for the week.

Dufner eased into his round today, scribbling 12 straight pars to open the day. Over that stretch, his longest holed putt was from 5'2". On his 13th hole of the day (the par-4 fourth hole), he fired in a 15'4" birdie. It would end up as just one of two putts made from outside 5'2", losing 0.739 strokes with the flat stick. Dufner was able to survive his cold putter today considering he landed 17 greens in regulation. The Auburn product is just four strokes off the early clubhouse lead, and could become a serious threat over the weekend if his putter warms up.

The 2012 AT&T Byron Nelson champion returns to TPC Four Seasons Resort this week, making his eighth appearance here in Irving, Texas.

Dufner fits the mold of a course horse very well this week. Other than his 2012 victory, he's also collected a pair of T8 in seven total starts. The Auburn product was in a bit of a rut last season, but he already proved that is a thing of the past with his win earlier this season at the CareerBuilder Challenge. Even though he's been a bit quiet recently, he's still 13-for-16 on the season and has great course history to lean on this week. That makes him a great option for gamers in all formats.

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.

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.

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.
