Pittsford, New York, Aug 12: Jason Dufner won his first major title with a two-stroke victory over Jim Furyk at the PGA Championship.




Dufner bogeyed the final two holes on Sunday for a 2-under 68 that was good enough to hold off the 2003 US Open champion. The winning score was 10-under 270.

Dufner made up for the heartache of the 2011 PGA, when he went to the 15th tee with a four-stroke lead in Atlanta. He dunked that shot in the water, squandered the advantage and lost to Keegan Bradley in a play-off.

There was no such collapse on another warm, sunny day at Oak Hill.

From tee to green, Dufner was nearly perfect. If not for a bit of a shaky putter, the margin would've been even more.
