Golf Australia Express : Issue 37
JASON DUFNER HAS just started winning. And he’s getting good at it. If the 35-year-old American continues his recent form he’ll have to build a new room to house all the silverware. After years of near misses, including two 2011 playoff losses at the Phoenix Open and PGA Championship, Dufner has proven he can actually get the job done in the tight ones. He followed his Zurich Classic playoff win over Ernie Els with a one-shot victory at the Byron Nelson Championship on Sunday—his second title coming just three weeks after his first. His recent success can in part be attributed to consistently finding more fairways. Off the tee, Dufner’s jumped 38 places since 2011 in driving accuracy, and is currently ranked the sixth straightest driver on Tour. That accuracy has also extended to his irons, climbing from 53rd in greens in regulation in 2011 to his current place of 13th. That improvement shone in neon lights in Texas last week where Dufner was superb tee to green, ranking number one and two in the field for greens in reg and driving accuracy respectively. With $3,108,972 banked after just 13 events this season, Dufner sits atop the FedEx Cup and money list standings. And if that doesn’t make him smile, nothing will.
