Jason Dufner preps for The Old Course at St. Andrews during this week's Open Championship.
Dufner is picking up steam with three straight top 25s ahead of this week. On the season, he is 89th in the FedExCup race. Dufner sits at just 142nd in driving distance, and may be at a slight advantage this week as a result. His previous best at The Open Championship is a T26 at the 2013 edition. Jul 15 - 9:27 AM

Jason Dufner looped Chambers Bay for a 2-under-par 36-32=68 in today's opening round of the U.S. Open.

After floundering for most of 2015, Dufner picked up his first top 10 of the calendar year at TPC Four Season (T8). He added a T24 at Memorial before taking last week off. So, it's encouraging to see him extend that form into the season's second major. He totaled 15 greens in regulation and traded four birdies with two bogeys. It's just his second sub-par score in 27 career rounds in the tournament. While it's one of the most stringent for scoring every year, that's still an inspiring record. He's three swings back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Jason Dufner authored the shot of the day en route to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round of the 40th edition of the Memorial.

Going off the 10th hole, Dufner promptly poured in a par save from 13'3" on the par 4. He then connected for birdie from just outside 10 feet at the par-5 11th, but gave it back plus one with a double bogey at the par-3 12th. After a par at the par-4 13th, he rolled in birdie at the par-4 14th and eagle-3 at 15 (from just 6'4"). Now on the tee with a 6-iron at the par-3 16th, Dufner jarred the shot from 208 yards for a hole-in-one. He bogeyed the par-4 17th, but played the remainder in bogey-free 2-under with two birdies, including a conversion from 14'8" at the par-4 first. It's just the third time this season that a golfer has circled consecutive eagles. At 11-under 133, the 38-year-old is just one stroke off the pace of 36-hole clubhouse leader David Lingmerth.

Jason Dufner enjoyed a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in today's opening round of the Memorial, coming to rest two swings in arrears of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Dufner flourished in the soggy conditions at TPC Four Seasons last week and tied for eighth place for his best finish of the season. Today at Muirfield Village, he landed 14 greens in regulation. The air show yielded to eagles and five birdies. His longer eagle was a marvelous bender from 59'7" at the par-5 15th hole, but his longest conversion of the round dropped for birdie from 64'9" at the par-4 sixth. The 38-year-old also three-putted the par-5 11th for bogey, and he doubled the par-4 18th after finding water off the tee, but all things considered, it was a successful day for the recent divorcé.
Jun 4 - 6:36 PM

Jason Dufner submitted a 3-under-par 34-32=66 after today's final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship to finish up at 11-under 266, currently T6 with play still in progress.

Dufner began the final round at 8-under (T15) and five shots adrift of the 54-hole lead. The 38-year-old outbalanced two bogeys with three birdies and an eagle-3, on the par-5 16th, in this his seventh-career visit to the TPC Four Seasons. Dufner, the 2012 BNC champion, will not match that accomplishment this year, but he looks assured to add his second top 10 on the season (in 14 starts) and first since a T10 at the WGC-HSBC Champions way back in November.
May 31 - 5:08 PM

Jason Dufner carded a 5-under-par 31-33=64 in today's third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship to post 8-under 200, up 32 spots on the leaderboard with play still in progress.

Dufner began his third round at T40 and six shots off the pace. Continuing weather delays required threesomes off both tees for the third round of play. The 38-year-old was in the second threesome off No. 10 and promptly bogeyed his first hole. That would be it as far as dropped shots for Dufner as he circled birdies on Nos. 11, 14, 16 and 18 on his first nine and added two more par breakers at the second and fourth on his inward half. The 2012 BNC champion is seeking his first top-10 finish since a T10 at the WGC-HSBC Champions (back in November), and first PGA TOUR title dating back to his win at the 95th PGA Championship in 2013.
May 30 - 7:14 PM

Jason Dufner is part of the first group (with John Huh and 2004 Crowne Plaza Invitational champion Steve Flesch) that was scheduled to go off No. 10 tee at 7:00 a.m. CT, but due to inclement weather his start time has been delayed by two hours. UPDATE: Total delay time has now moved to three hours.

Dufner, twice a runner-up in this tournament, sits at 3-under 207 as he awaits the start of the final round. Sunday tee times were already moved up in anticipation of inclement weather, including separating the field into threesomes and utilizing both sets of tees. Without any additional delays, the final group is now scheduled to go out at 12:00 p.m. off No. 1 tee.
May 24 - 8:30 AM

Jason Dufner lapped Colonial Country Club in 2-under-par 33-35=68 in today's opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Twice a groomsman in this tournament, Dufner failed to find only one of the 14 fairways and two greens in regulation. However, he converted just three birdies, including a roll from 21'9" at the par-4 18th hole. So, while he leads the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green (4.578), he came to rest four strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders. Remarkably, this was his first sub-70 in an opening round since he carded 67 in the lid-lifter here last year.

In a battle among 0-2 records, Jason Dufner downed Brandt Snedeker 1-up in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

The funny thing about this match is that Dufner hadn't enjoyed a lead all week until he birdied the par-5 18th today. Yep, he went 1-2 and won only one hole. Poor Sneds, who finishes 0-3. Reviewing the details of this match isn't even necessary, but it's worth noting that of all of the guys that don't advance to the round of 16, Dufner may need the FedExCup points the most. He arrived at TPC Harding Park slotted 104th in the standings. At this point last year, he sat inside the top 20 in the Official World Golf Ranking, but he's currently 56th. Both he and Snedeker now get a chance to reset for next week's PLAYERS.
May 1 - 9:26 PM

Jason Dufner heads to TPC Harding Park for this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship and owns a 2-3 career record at this event and a 4-3 career singles record in match-play events overall.

Dufner was bounced in the first round of his first two Cadillac Match Play appearances in 2012/13 before making it to round three in last year's edition, losing 1-down to Ernie Els. He's fared better as part of a team format going 3-1-0 as a Presidents Cup rookie in 2013 and 3-1-0 as a rookie-member of the U.S. Ryder Cup team in 2012. Dufner has dropped to No. 56 in the Official World Golf Ranking registering only one top 20 (T17, Honda) in eight TOUR starts in 2015. His Group 1 opponents: Rory McIlroy, Billy Horschel and Brandt Snedeker.
Apr 28 - 9:48 AM

Jason Dufner looks to build some momentum ahead of the year's first major as he readies for this week's Valero Texas Open.

After a pair of missed cuts to open the calendar year, Dufner is starting to look like himself again. He's collected a pair of top 25s over his last three events and could certainly use this event as a springboard. On the flip side, Dufner is making his course debut at TPC San Antonio, and it's no easy task to defeat this giant.
Mar 25 - 9:34 AM

Jason Dufner has made the cut in each of his previous six trips to The Honda Classic and is back in action this week.

Five of Dufner's six paydays have come at the current venue of PGA National's Champion Course, with a T9 in 2009 the best effort.The returns have slowed over his last few trips, failing to crack the top 50 in his last two attempts. Something has to give, as he's missed the cut in each of his two PGA TOUR starts in the 2015 portion of the 2014-15 season.
Feb 23 - 8:35 PM

Jason Dufner completed 54 holes of the Humana Challenge in 6-under-par 76-65-69=210, missing the cut by two strokes.

Seventy-two golfers survived at 8-under 208 or lower, so all will play the final round at PGA West's Palmer Private. Dufner had cashed in his last five trips to the desert dating back to 2007, but he hadn't returned since 2012. After a dreadful opened at La Quinta Country Club this week, he lit up both tracks at PGA West for a total of one eagle and 10 birdies against two bogeys, so he'll take some confidence into next week's stop at TPC Scottsdale where he missed the cut in his last visit in 2013. Other notables that failed to survive today's cut include: 209--Zach Johnson; Jerry Kelly; rookie Zac Blair ... 210--rookie Nick Taylor; Brandt Snedeker ... 211--Russell Knox ... 213--2011 champ Jhonattan Vegas; Steven Bowditch ... 214--2006 champ Chad Campbell; Luke Donald; Andres Gonzales ... 215--1996 champ Mark Brooks ... 216--2005 champ Justin Leonard ... 229--2003 champ Mike Weir.

Jason Dufner is looking good ahead of this week's Humana Challenge.

Dufner's game, and physique, are both in fine form ahead of his sixth Humana start. Four of his 24 rounds here are 65 or better, which gives gamers something to cheer about in any format that rewards low rounds. Internationally, he's collected four top 30s since returning from injury that put an end to his 2013-14 season. As long as health is not an issue, Dufner will always be a top-tier option for gamers.
Jan 21 - 8:50 PM

Jason Dufner's 2013-14 PGA TOUR season was cut short due to an issue with bulging discs in his neck, but he has demonstrated that all is sorted out with his play late in 2014.

Dufner made only two starts on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR before the winter break, but they went for a T26 at the CIMB Classic and a T10 at the WGC-HSBC Champions. He led into those tournaments with a T23 in the ISPS HANDA Perth International and concluded his play in calendar year 2014 with a T7 in the Chiangmai Golf Classic presented by PTT. One would have to conclude that he the 2013 PGA Championship winner wouldn't have jeopardized his long-term health for those four events unless he felt he was completely healed and risked no further damage.
