Jason Dufner tossed up a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in today's third round of The Barclays to post 3-under 210, up nine places on the live leaderboard to T17.
The 39-year-old began the third round on 1-under (T26) after opening his seventh appearance in 73-68. He squared a lone bogey at the lengthy par-3 third, 3-putting from 98'1", but played his final 15 holes in blemish-free 3-under, circling Nos. 4, 13 and 14. The Auburn alum landed eight (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 3.627 SG: Tee-to-Green but -0.829 in SG: Putting. His 1.846 putts per GIR could've been better, but missed closing birdie tries on 17, from 3'10" and 18, from 5'11". Dufner, who entered the week 21st in the FedExCup standings, did drop a 46-footer for birdie-2 at 14 and holed a 40-footer from the fringe for a par on the par-5 seventh. Aug 27 - 4:24 PM

Jason Dufner contests his ninth Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The 39-year-old is 5-for-8 at Sedgefield CC with two top 25s doubling as top 10s. He posted a best of T7 in 2012 and added a T8 in 2004 debut during his rookie season. The Auburn alum's career scoring average on the par-70 layout in 26 laps is 68.46. He was T51 last year (67-70-65-73). Dufner took two weeks off after T60 at the PGA Championship which chased a T22 at The Open and 51st and the no-cut WGC-Bridgestone. Overall, he's 20-for-23 on the season with nine top 25s and five top 10s, including his playoff win at the CareerBuilder back in January, his fourth TOUR title, first since the 2013 PGA.

Jason Dufner closed out his week at the 116th U.S. Open Championship with an even-par 35-35=70 to secure a sixth career top 10 in a major championship at 2-over 282.

Dufner played stereotypical fairways-and-greens golf by striping 10 (of 14) fairways and landing 13 greens in regulation. From there, he took 30 putts to get home, including a pair of three-jacks along the way. That's actually a slight improvement from his first three rounds as he totaled 93 putts from R1 through R3. It wasn't devoid of highlight, though, as he splashed home four putts from 8-to-15 feet on the round. Dufner arrived with top 20s in three of his last four U.S. Open appearances and this will go in the books as another.

Jason Dufner pieced together a 4-under-par 36-32=68 during the opening round of this week's Memorial.

Dufner got started on the back nine and missed a 5'3" birdie attempt early on at the par-5 11th. He didn't let that miss dictate his putting for the remainder of the round. In fact, he bounced back immediately with a 35'4" birdie bomb on the next hole and tacked on putts made from outside five feet in five of the six holes following that bomb. The Auburn product slowed his pace coming into the clubhouse, trading one bogey with one birdie on his inward nine. Dufner has top 25s in each of the past two editions of the Memorial and might just find himself back in that range by week's end.

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.
May 29 - 6:59 PM

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.
May 26 - 3:21 PM

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.
May 20 - 2:07 PM

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.
Feb 25 - 1:47 PM

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.
