Jason Dufner gets it done in his 164th start on the PGA Tour

 

 

  

New Orleans - After going 0 for 163 in PGA Tour events, Jason Dufner finally broke

through at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.After a Sunday 70, Dufner and Els

(final round 67) went to a sudden death playoff after finishing at -17.

 

Ernie Els had a six foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to end his drought and regain

his position in world golf, but the putt slid right, and one hole later Dufner tapped in a

two foot birdie to win his 1st PGA Tour event.

 

Dufner had some thoughts about what the win means, "Not in a negative way but when

you're leading tournaments going into weekends and you're finishing 24th there's going

to be some questions.So for me to get that kind of off my back, maybe this will jump start

me and get me to start believing that I can compete out here on a week to week basis and

win some of these things."

 

What a great wedding present, Dufner will be married next week on May 5th.

 

World #1 Luke Donald shot a final round 67 to finish third at -17

of 2,045 days.The 2003 British Open Champion hung on with weekend rounds of 73, 72, and a

two stroke victory at -9, after torrid opening two rounds of 67, 67 on the tough TPC San Antonio

Greg Norman layout.

 

"That's a long time, the last couple of years I felt like I was so close to playing so many good

tournaments. I'd end up missing the cut by one or I'd have a bad round here or there or I haven't

putted well. Finally, every part of the game came together."

 

First round leader Matt Every shot a Sunday 71, and finished tied for second along with John Huh

(69).

Hilton Head, South Carolina - At the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links, Carl

Pettersson decimated the field by 5 strokes for his fifth PGA Tour title.

Pettersson rode a hot start to a Sunday 69 and 14 under par, "I didn't want to put

too much pressure on myself, so I kind of downplayed the whole thing. But getting

off to a birdie on one was great."

 

Pettersson played the front nine 13 under par for the week,"I like all the holes," he

said. "I don't have one hole on the front nine where I feel awkward over the tee shot

or second shot."

 

Zach Johnson (70) finished second at -9, and Colt Knost finished third following a

Sunday 74.

Augusta, Ga - On a day that a famous lefty was the favorite and poised to claim his

fourth Green Jacket, it was another south paw that became the champion.Bubba

Watson (68) seized the moment with a miraculous shot out of the trees on the 2nd

hole of a sudden death playoff (10th hole) with 2010 Open Champion Louis

Oosthuizen.Oosthuizen made history with a doulble eagle at the par 5 second hole, it

marked the fourth doulble eagle in Masters history, and the first to be made at the

second hole.

 

After 54 hole leader Peter Hanson struggled early, and Phil Mickelson botched the par

3 fourth, it looked like it was Oosthuizen's (69) to lose.The South African made

clutch putt after clutch putt, and it appeared that if he wasn't going to win the

Masters, someone would have to take it from him.Watson's four birdies in a row on

the back nine (holes 13-16) were enough to catch the man they call "Shrek".

 

In the sudden death playoff that started on 18, Watson had a chance to end it with

a 7 footer, but he missed and the playoff continued on the long downhill tenth.Both

men hit errant drives right, but Watson was in the wilderness and at a huge

disadvantage.The South African could do no better with his approach than short of

the green, now the stage was set for the shot of a lifetime.Bubba's hooked gap

wedge was a miraculous strike, settling some 15 feet from the hole.Oosthuizen could

not get up and down, and Watson lagged to a foot assuring victory.As he tapped in

and realized his dream had become reality, he broke down in emotion.

 

Watson a new father, who lost his own father not ago, had now become the latest

to join the most exclusive fraternity in the sport . . . what will a guy from Bagdad,

Florida serve at next years Champions dinner.

 

Lee Westwood, Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar, and Peter Hanson all finished tied for 3rd

at -8.
