Jason Dufner readies for contention this week at the 78th Masters.
Dufner has nine straight cuts made in majors championships, and is 3-for-3 at Augusta National. The host course favors the aggressive, but Dufner is only going for the green 47.62% of the time in 2014, ranking 94th on TOUR. He will need to take some educated risks this week if he wants to find himself in contention. Apr 9 - 11:12 AM

Jason Dufner swallowed a 4-over-par 38-38=76 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to tie for ninth at 2-over 290.

Dufner looked calm with a birdie on the first, but of course he always does. The remaining 17 holes at Trump National Doral weren't nearly as fun, featuring four bogeys and a double bogey to just one birdie. Luckily for his pocketbook, he was in good company late in the day. His bid for a first WGC title will have to wait until at least the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational later this season.
Mar 9 - 7:01 PM

Jason Dufner spun a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship and wrangles the clubhouse lead away from Tiger Woods at 2-under 214.

Dufner navigated Trump National Doral to the tune of seven birdies, giving back a bogey and a double bogey in the process. The brunt of his work came when he circled five birdies in an eight-hole span, beginning with a six-inch birdie at the par-4 fifth that nearly spun in for an eagle. While he only found 10 GIR, he putted those to a 1.40 putting average despite only marginally gaining strokes relative to the field with the flat stick. Four of his birdies were from inside two feet, so proximity was the order of the day. He'll try and earn his first win of 2014, and first WGC, in Sunday's finale.
Mar 8 - 4:44 PM

Jason Dufner carded a 3-under-par 32-37=69 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

Along with 61 others, Dufner returned to Trump National Doral at 8:45 a.m. ET to put the finishing touches on the first round. During his two-day loop, he hit 12 greens in regulation and limited the damage to two bogeys. Elsewhere he picked off four birdies, including four straight beginning at No. 11 -- his second of the round -- where he holed out from six yards out just off the green. The run also included a conversion from 13'11" at 13.
Mar 7 - 9:54 AM

Jason Dufner turned away Matteo Manassero 2 and 1 in the Player Bracket in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Manassero probably should have won this match despite sloppy play by both guys. He reached 2 up with a birdie at the par-4 seventh. Dufner would square with a birdie-3 at 9 and a par at the par-3 12th, but the Italian roared back with an eagle at the par-5 13th to regain the lead. After matching pars at 14, Manassero conceded the par-4 15th to open the door. Dufner won 16 with a par-3, and then served what would be a walk-off chip-in for birdie at the par-3 17th. Look for him in Friday's third round against Ernie Els.
Feb 20 - 6:36 PM

Jason Dufner came from behind to defeat Scott Stallings in 19 holes in the Player Bracket in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Dufner squeeze every ounce out of this matchup to advance. He sat 3 down with no par breakers after 10 holes. It remained that way until he won the par-4 14th with a 4. A birdie-2 at 16 reduced the deficit to 1, but that was erased with a concession at the par-4 17th. They traded pars at the par-4 18th to force sudden death during which Dufner won with a pedestrian par at the par-4 first. This was Stallings' debut, but Dufner was 0-2 before today. The Internet sensation draws Matteo Manassero in the second round.
Feb 19 - 5:51 PM

Jason Dufner makes his way to Riviera Country Club for the Northern Trust Open.

After playing this event in 2007 and again from 2010-12, Dufner skipped out on the 2013 edition. He's never sizzled here, sharing 29th in 2011 in what was his best effort. He's only made a pair of PGA TOUR starts in 2014, backing up a solo fifth at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions with a T29 in the Sony Open. He hasn't played anywhere since finishing outside of the top 70 in the Commercialbank Qatar Masters.
Feb 12 - 9:36 PM

Jason Dufner posted a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

He split only four (of 14) fairways but hit 12 greens in regulation and circled six birdies against three bogeys to finish four strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead. While the sub-70 isn't a shocker, that he walked off with a strokes gained-putting [SG-P] split north of 2.300 qualifies as a surprise. He took solo fifth at Kapalua last week but ranked 23rd in SG-P, which fits his profile. Today, he missed a pair of tries inside seven feet -- one for birdie, the other for par -- but holes birdies from 19 feet and 22'2" at Nos. 4 and 7, respectively. Dufner's longest conversion was a bogey "save" from 25'11" at the par-4 second where he rinsed his tee ball.
Jan 9 - 6:23 PM

Jason Dufner came up short in his bid to claim the Hyundai Tournament of Champions title, signing for a 4-under-par 33-36=69 and finishing fifth at 15-under 277.

Dufner was right in the mix until an untimely double bogey at the par-4 17th ruined his chances at a win. His only other blemish on the day was a bogey on the par-4 fourth. Sandwiched in between were four birdies and a 58-foot eagle on the par-5 fifth. He also closed out his round with a birdie from 16'10" on the par-5 18th. He'll now go find the nearest television and sit back to watch his beloved Auburn Tigers play in the BCS National Championship Game against Florida State.
Jan 6 - 7:59 PM

Jason Dufner rebounded from a second-round 72 to post a 4-under-par 34-35=69 in his third lap around the Kapalua Resort Plantation Course.

Dufner had joined a tie for second place in real time at one point during his round, but a bogey on the par-4 17th and a missed opportunity for birdie from 7'6" on the par-5 18th have him fighting to stay inside the top five with 18 holes to play. Despite circling seven birdies, he lost over two strokes to the field with the flat stick leaving us to wonder what could have been with even a decent effort with the putter. He'll try and roll it a bit smoother in Monday's finale, and he enters that round at 11-under 208.
Jan 5 - 8:57 PM

Jason Dufner calmly posted a 1-under-par 35-37=72 in the second round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, barely improving to 7-under 139 for the tournament.

Dufner just didn't get anything going, circling two birdies to one bogey on his lap around the Plantation Course. He landed 14 GIR and missed just two fairways, so the problem was obvious. He just didn't make enough putts. That will likely be the sink-or-swim story of his final 36 holes as well.
Jan 4 - 6:33 PM

Jason Dufner spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 30-37=67 in his opening round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The cult hero imparted all of his damage on Kapalua's front side today, sandwiching a kick-in eagle at the par-5 fifth with four birdies. His most notable of the quartet came courtesy of a 17-yard chip-in from in front of the green at the par-3 eight hole. He missed two putts from eight feet and in and finished with a strokes gained-putting split just south of -1.750, so all bets are off in projecting what happens on Saturday.
Jan 3 - 9:31 PM

Jason Dufner's win at the PGA Championship means a second trip to Kapalua for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Dufner posted a distant T18 in the 2013 edition on the Plantation Course, but the weather was extreme even for Hawaii last time around. You probably remember the event was shortened to 54-holes due to wind, with multiple attempts to start the first round erased by cancellations. While this is not the place to burn a one-and-done, his performance does bear watching since it seems likely he will be back in years to come.

Jason Dufner ousted Brendon de Jonge 4 and 3 in the Presidents Cup singles, increasing the United States lead to seven points.

Dufner won four holes to de Jonge's one, then picked up a concession at the par-5 15th for the clincher. de Jonge was widely touted as a solid selection by Nick Price for the International Team, but seemed to fade on Sunday as the foursomes matches came to a conclusion and the singles didn't fall his way. Dufner improved his record for the week to 3-1-0, and the current score is 16-to-9 for the U.S.

Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson overcame an early deficit in their Saturday foursomes match at the Presidents Cup with Richard Sterne and Marc Leishman to close the door on a 4-and-3 victory, with the remainder of the action halted by darkness.

Play is scheduled to resume at 7:35 a.m. ET on Sunday. Dufner and Johnson trailed 2 down through seven holes after sitting out the morning fourball, but caught fire and rattled off wins on six of their final eight holes to extend the American lead to five points. At one point early in the session, there were no American flags on the board. The remaining four groups will have to finish on Sunday, after multiple rain delays over the last two days has put action behind schedule. The current score is 11½-6½ in favor of the U.S., but the Internationals lead three of the matches currently in progress.
