Former Auburn golfer Jason Dufner captured his first PGA Tour victory on Sunday after defeating Ernie Els on the second playoff hole at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at TPC Louisiana. Dufner becomes the first Auburn golfer to win a PGA Tour event since John Huston won the Southern Farm Bureau Classic in 2003.
"It's always really tough playing on Sundays whether you're in lead or middle of pack, and today I was fighting, trying to win event, and I think I showed myself a good bit out there," Dufner said. "To get the monkey off of my back, it's a great feeling."
After Els and Dufner carded pars on the first playoff hole, they went back to the 18th tee where Dufner was able to reach the green in two strokes. Dufner then secured his victory after tapping home a short birdie putt.
After starting the day with five pars, Dufner bogeyed on No. 6, but was able to rebound with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 7 and 8 to close out the front nine at 1-under. On the back nine, Dufner fired a birdie on No. 10. On No. 16, Dufner drove into the water, but was able to save par by sinking a 44-foot putt.
With the win, Dufner now moves into ninth place in the FedEx Cup standings with 932 points.
