Jason Dufner (XPS-1 and FJ Apparel) won the HP Byron Nelson Championship in dramatic fashion by holing a 25 foot birdie putt on the last hole of regulation to win by one over fellow FJ staffer, Dicky Pride (FJ Sport and SciFlex).
Beginning the day with the lead, Dufner fell behind with early bogeys on two and three. He bounced back quickly with a birdie on the fourth, fifth, and seventh holes to join the leaders at nine under par.
He added a birdie at ten to retake the lead alone. Dufner, first in greens in regulation and second in driving accuracy, birdied the sixteenth hole to keep pace with surging playing competitors. On the final hole, with a hazard left and trees right, Dufner launched his tee ball straight up the middle. With only a short wedge shot left, Dufner played a shot to the middle of the green, 25 feet from the pin. He then poured in the downhill, right to left putt for the one stroke victory.
Post round Dufner stated, "You probably couldn't dream it any better than what's been going on
here" Continuing, "The wedding has been in the works for close to a
year, so we know that's been coming around the corner. And there's been a
lot of good golf since then, but to win two events and get married in
the span of 22 days, pretty remarkable."
This is Dufner's second win in his past three starts. The win also moves him to the top spot on the FedEx Cup leaderboard and into third place on the Ryder Cup points list.

What a great finish by Jason. Talk about steady play and no outward showing of nerves. He is beginning to come into his own and really plays his game. Really great win and I congratulate him on this latest achievement.
As an aside, it would be nice to see him using an FJ glove to complete the package.
