Dufner leads Furyk
Updated: Sunday, August 11 2013, 05:38 PM EDT
Pittsford, N.Y.-- (AP/ABC) Trying to erase the heartache of two years ago, Jason Dufner made the turn at the PGA Championship leading Jim Furyk by two strokes Sunday.
In what essentially shaped up as a three-man race, Dufner broke a tie for the lead with a tap-in birdie at the eighth to get to 11 under, then saved par at the ninth with a testy 10-footer. Furyk took a bogey at the final hole on the front side, unable to make up for a poor approach shot into the thick rough ringing the green.
Henrik Stenson, hoping to become the first Swedish man to capture a major title, was the only other player within striking distance of the leader. He made the turn with a 1-under 34 and was three shots behind.
Furyk started the final round one shot ahead of Dufner on another warm, sunny day at Oak Hill.
Dufner pulled even with a birdie on the par-5 fourth. At the fifth, he stuck a brilliant iron shot to about 2 feet for another birdie, pulling ahead of Furyk.
Not so fast. After six straight pars to start the round, Furyk rolled in a 40-footer across the sixth green to even things up again at 10 under.
Furyk appeared to have a slight edge when his approach at the eighth plopped down about 12 feet left of the flag. But, in quite a display of one-upmanship, Dufner's shot spun back from above the hole and came to a stop about a foot from the cup.
Furyk missed his birdie try. Dufner tapped his in to edge back ahead.
Dufner had an even bigger lead at the 2011 PGA Championship in Atlanta, stepping to the 15th tee with a four-stroke edge. But he frittered it away, and Keegan Bradley won the playoff.
The 43-year-old Furyk was trying to give golf another middle-aged champion. Three weeks ago, Phil Mickelson captured the British Open at age 43. The last time golf had back-to-back major champions in their 40s was 1986, when Jack Nicklaus won the Masters and Raymond Floyd followed with a victory in the U.S. Open.
Other contenders faded away. Sweden's Jonas Blixt bogeyed the first two holes. Lee Westwood bogeyed the second and made a double-bogey at the next hole. Rory McIlroy dumped his ball into the hazard at No. 5 and took triple-bogey.
Scott Piercy shot 5-under 65 for the clubhouse lead at 5-under 275, but a bogey at the final hole left him shaking his head. Jason Day's finish was even worse. The Aussie shot 67 but closed with three straight bogeys to ruin his hopes of a truly special round. He was at 3-under 277.
Mickelson wasn't a factor at Oak Hill. He shot 72 to finish 12 over, tied for 72nd position when he headed for home, his day done before the guys in contention for the Wanamaker Trophy even teed off.
Tiger Woods was an also-ran, as well, wrapping up his fifth straight year without a major title. He did play well down the stretch, making birdies on three of the last six holes. But all that got him was a 70, leaving him at 4-over 284 for the week. He never shot in the 60s, despite much easier scoring conditions the first two days and warm, sunny weather the last two.
Woods is 0 for 18 in the Grand Slam events since winning the U.S. Open in 2008, leaving him at 14 major championships in his career and still four behind the record held by Jack Nicklaus.
Coming off his fifth PGA Tour victory of the year, a seven-stroke runaway at the Bridgestone, Woods never got anything going in the final major the year.
"I put together four good rounds last week," he said. "Unfortunately, it wasn't this week. I didn't seem to hit it as good and didn't make many putts until the last few holes."
Tim Clark had the shot of the day among the early starters, a hole-in-one at the 11th. He knocked it in from 220 yards with a hybrid.
