  • WGT GOLF UPDATE: Dufner Gets Second Win of 2012 at Byron Nelson Championship

    21 May 2012

    Jason Dufner is a happy man these days after getting his second PGA Tour win this weekend at the HP Byron Nelson Championship at TPC Four Seasons. This comes within a month of his first victory on April 29 at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans, and getting married the following week.

    Dufner finished the golf tournament Sunday with a one-stroke victory over Dicky Pride with a 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole. That closing birdie wrapped up a 3-under 67 round for an 11-under 269. Pride finished 3-under 67 for a 10-under 270 on the tournament.

    Phil Mickelson finished tied for seventh place with 6-under 66 and last weekend's Players Championship winner, Matt Kuchar, ended up tied for 15th with 4-under 70. Both remain steady in the FedEx Cup Rankings: in fourth and sixth places, respectively.

    This win makes Dufner the second two-time winner this season, along with Hunter Mahan, and also knocks Mahan out of the #1 spot in the FedEx Cup rankings (now #2) -- replaced by Dufner, who was #12 last week.
