In the Bag 2013 with Jason Dufner 2013 USPGA Champion

He’s been labelled the most laid-back man in golf, someone who doesn’t experience the extremes of emotion that the game brings. His expressionless face has even coined a new phrase ‘Dufnering’, for someone sitting impassively, slouched down with a somewhat downbeat expression on their face.


Yet for all these somewhat unkind observations, there is no doubt that the new 2013 USPGA Champion Jason Dufner is one of the most talented and intriguing golfers currently plying their trade on the tour.

Career Highlights:

Without doubt, the highlight of Dufner’s career came in August 2013, when he emerged as the newest Major winner in golf after securing success at the USPGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club, New York.

The most remarkable aspect of Dufner’s victory however wasn’t the fact that this talented golfer won the event, but that in the second round, after shooting an opening day 68, Dufner broke the course record at Oak Hill and tied for the lowest ever all-time round in a Major when shooting a 63 in the second round.


Although a third round 71 saw him fall a shot behind leader Jim Furyk, it meant that Dufner would go out in the final pairings and after a solid final round, Dufner won the tournament, his fifth in his career so far, by two shots.



Career Lowpoints:

Although he may be a relatively new name to the upper echelons of golf, Dufner has actually spent many years in the game and the toughest time in his career came in the early 2000s when he struggled to make a name for himself. He played on the Nationwide Tour from 2001 to 2003 but earned a PGA Tour card for 2004.

That season didn’t go too well for Dufner who lost his card for the following year and spent the next two years, 2005 and 2006, playing on the Nationwide tour once again before earning a PGA Tour card for the 2007 season.  Again Dufner struggled on your and only retained a conditional status on tour for the 2008 season.


However in 2009, he earned his tour card and has not looked back since, securing six top-1o finishes in the 2009 PGA season and finishing a highly creditable 11th in the FedEx Cup standings.

Yet while his early career struggles may be a torrid time for Dufner, most people remember his capitulation in the 2011 USPGA Championship, when Dufner let slip a five stroke lead with just four holes to play, before being defeated by Keegan Bradley in a playoff.



What does the future hold for Jason Dufner?

After getting the monkey of his 2011 capitulation in the USPGA Championship off his  back with victory in the 2013 event, Dufner can now look forward to cementing his place in the world’s top ten golfers (he now stands at number eight) and also making a challenge in several of the other majors over the next few years.


Perhaps with his new found success, ‘Dufnering’ may take on a new meaning, perhaps that of a golfer who has a happy knack of winning the big golf tournaments.
