DUFNER EMERGES OUT OF THE STORM

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Play Your Best -

The weather in­ter­rupted Memo­rial Tour­na­ment pre­sented by Na­tion­wide cer­tainly had an end­ing and cham­pion that sur­prised many.

Ja­son Dufner won on 13-un­der 275 and won by three strokes.

But it was be­fore two rain de­lays that gave this event an ex­cit­ing roller­coaster ride to the end.

Dufner had lost a five shot lead in the third round, and started the fi­nal round with a four-shot deficit.

But he held on calmly with a fi­nal round 4-un­der-par 68 to join tour­na­ment host Jack Nick­laus as the only Ohio-born win­ners of the Memo­rial.

“Yes­ter­day was not my best day,” Dufner said af­ter card­ing for a 77. “But I had to get over it quick. It’s a 72-hole tour­na­ment, there’s a lot of things that can hap­pen out there. I knew I was still in the mix.”
