A fabulous week at Oak Hill concluded on Sunday with Jason Dufner winning the 95 PGA Championship. Dufner held off Jim Furyk to win golf's final major of the season by two shots.
Dufner becomes the third first-time major winner on the PGA Tour this season joining Adam Scott and Justin Rose, and the 19th different winner of a major in the last 21.
Dufner catpured his third career PGA Tour title while capturing the hearts of the fans at Oak Hill.
Dufner was devastated after losing a four shot lead with four holes to go in the 2011 PGA Championship before losing in a playoff to Keegan Bradley.
The 36-year old Cleveland native set the course record on a Saturday with a 63 breaking the record set by his idle Ben Hogan. Dufner was able to solve the Donald Ross course while Tiger Woods and Phil Micklelson were humbled once again. In eight rounds at Oak Hill, Woods is plus-16, while never breaking par. Mickelson finished last at 12-over.
As for Oak Hill Country Club, the course and the officials deserve and demand another major championship in the future. No one does better the Oak Hill. THe course and infra structure is second to none.
In the end the galleries were amazing. A record crowd for the PGA Championship showed up on Saturday. We are a wonderful golf town. We not may be a major market, but we are a major major when it comes to loving and knowing the game of golf. The FLower City knows how to throw a party when it comes hosting majors such as PGA Championship and the Wegmans LPGA Championship.
