Jason Dufner has never won a tournament on the PGA tour. In fact, in his last four tournaments, he's missed the cut every time.
Yet, on Sunday afternoon at Atlanta Athletic Club, Jason Dufner will enter the brutal last few holes of the PGA Championship, where many would-be contenders have imploded, at -11, two strokes ahead of Keegan Bradley (-9) and four ahead of Robert Karlsson, who bogeyed 16, and Anders Hansen (-7).
Dufner will be the unlikeliest of major champions if he can survive holes 14-18 — as tall a task as there is to climb to the top of the golf mountain. One thing's for sure: whoever wins this tournament will have really, really earned it. Chances are, we haven't seen the last twist on this leaderboard.
