Jason Dufner wins the 95th PGA Championship

The 36 year old wins his first major at Oak Hill, finishes with a 68 in the final round
Jason Dufner trailed Jim Furyk by just one stroke heading into the final round at the 95th PGA Championship at Oak Hill. On Sunday he played an bogey-free final round, until making bogeys at 17 and 18. 

Dufner had a 5-stroke lead as he was on the tee box at the 15th hole of the final round of the 2011 PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club. That is where he pushed the ball into the water, and eventually lost the playoff to his friend, Keegan Bradley. The 15th at Atlanta is almost identical to the 15th at Oak Hill, but he made no mistake this year, as he played it safe on 15 and took his par.

Dufner played a very safe round, and it payed off for him as he was holding the Wanamaker Trophy on the 18th green Sunday night.
