27-seed Jason Dufner back-pedaled to an even-par 34-36=70 in today's final round of the TOUR Championship to conclude his fifth appearance on 4-under 276, down two spots into a two-way T8, but climbing eight spots to 19th in the final FedExCup standings.
The 39-year-old began the final round in solo sixth on 6-under, four adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Kevin Chappell. He book-ended bogeys on Nos. 1 and 9, sandwiching three straight birdies on 5-7, to turn 1-under. The Auburn alum came to the house in 1-over, outpacing birdie at the par-4 12th with a double bogey-6 at the 10th. For the week, he carded one eagle and 13 birdies against nine bogeys and a double, and ends the season with six top 10s in 28 starts. Dufner's T8 is a personal best at East Lake, supplanting T9 on last visit in 2013. Sep 25 - 6:07 PM

27-seed Jason Dufner matched the week's low round with a 4-under-par 30-36=66 in today's third round of the TOUR Championship to toss 4-under 206 on the board, up five places to solo sixth, four adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Kevin Chappell.

In ideal scoring conditions, the 39-year-old's 66 was the seventh of the day, 11th of the week. He did all of his damage with a bogey-free outward 30, limping home in a birdie-less 1-over, squaring a lone bogey at the par-4 17th on a failed scramble. Dufner improved to 14 greens in regulation, circling four conventional birdies and adding a 38'1" pitch-in for a '3' at the par-4 eighth. After recording negative numbers in SG: Putting in R1, he's put up two straight for the good, including 1.241 in the third frame.

27-seed Jason Dufner crafted a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to reach even-par 140, up eight spots on the live leaderboard to T10.

The 39-year-old opened his fifth appearance with a one-birdie four-bogey 73 on seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.909 putts per GIR and a disappointing -1.898 SG: Putting. He hit 11 GIR again in R2, but converted three birdies and an eagle-3 at the sixth, all from inside of 12 feet, improving to 1.636 putts per GIR and 1.506 SGP. Dufner squared bogey-5s at Nos. 4 and 12, both on failed scrambles.

World No. 63 Jason Dufner is playing his fifth TOUR Championship, first since a personal-best T9 in 2013, and checks in as the 27-seed in the FedExCup standings.

The Cleveland, Ohio, native's T9 in 2013 is his lone top 10 in the Playoffs finale. He was T26 (of 30) after opening rounds of 74-70, but played his final 36 holes in 66-65. The Auburn alum's career scoring average at the par-70 East Lake GC is 70.06. He enters off a T22 (Barclays); T33 (Deutsche Bank); and 60th-place finish (of 68) at the BMW on progressively worse rounds of 67-72-75-76. In 28 laps since Dufner's last top 10 (T8/US Open), he's a cumulative 1-under-par with just 10 red numbers. Overall, he's 22nd on TOUR in scoring average at 70.246.

Jason Dufner drenched Crooked Stick Golf Club with birdies en route to a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the BMW Championship, two strokes off the early leader Roberto Castro.

Dufner opened his day with a missed 3'1" par-saving attempt at the par-4 second. Despite the missed bunny, he bounced back with the flat stick to walk off the course gaining 2.118 strokes putting. That included five putts made from outside nine feet, three of them coming from the 28-to-39 foot range. It was all setup by great ball-striking, though, landing 16 greens in regulation on the day. Dufner arrived on the heels of three straight top 35s to reach 19th in the FedExCup race, and he's continuing that strong play through day one at Crooked Stick.

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.

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.

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.
