Jason Dufner celebrated his first career major by giving his wife Amanda a pat on the backside.
Dufner, 36, shot a final-round 68 at Oak Hill on Sunday to capture the PGA Championship, which was his first major title. He held off Jim Furyk by two strokes, making the most of a superb 63 he shot in the second round on Friday.
The former Auburn walk-on has been playing strong golf since marrying longtime girlfriend Amanda Boyd in May 2012. He won the Byron Nelson last year, finished second at the Colonial, and finished a career-best tied for fourth at the US Open. This year, he finished tied for fourth at the US Open. His 63 on Friday tied the record for lowest round at a major and set the course record at Oak Hill Country Club.
And who was there waiting to congratulate him after his championship on Sunday? Lovely Amanda.
