Ice Cool Dufner On Winning Streak

Jason Dufner holed  a superb 25-foot birdie putt on the 18th green to claim a dramatic one-stroke victory at the Byron Nelson Championship yesterday.

It rounded off a memorable few weeks for Dufner who won his first PGA Tour title in New Orleans at the end of April before getting married to wife Amanda.

The American is only the second man to win multiple titles on the American circuit this season, and is set to make his Ryder Cup debut in September when America host the Ryder Cup.

Dufner who led by a shot overnight started poorly in his final round and surrendered his lead after dropping shots at the second and third.

He bounced back with birdies on the fourth, fifth and seventh to take his score to nine-under through seven holes, but that was  still only sharing the lead with playing partner JJ Henry who made an ace at the fifth.

As the tournament was reaching a close a host of players were  fighting it out for position at the top of the leaderboard with Dickie Pride making an unlikely par on the 18th be tied with Dufner.

Dufner hit his best drive of the day on the last leaving him 109 yards to the hole. He didn’t hit the best approach and left himself a downhill right to left putt which he brilliantly holed and left veteran Dickie Pride alone in second.
