Jason Dufner ties record 63 at PGA Championship

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

Tiger Who? After Round 2 of the PGA Championship, Jason Dufner was the name on every golf fan’s lips. He even made history too! When his 63 broke the course record at Oak Hill, he also became the 24th player to shoot 63 in a major, and even had a shot at a 62. He stood a mere 12 feet away from a shot at the lowest score in 153 years of championship golf! “You couldn’t have a better putt for a 62,” he said. “And I left it short in the jar.” Now, despite his incredible near-legendary golf game, there’s no guarantee that Dufner will win the championship. In fact, the 25 previous times someone shot 63 in a major, only five of them actually then went on to win! Either way, he’s got some very good company in the record books, and the PGA of America even took the cap, shirt, and glove he was wearing during the game to ship them off to a museum in Florida for permanent display.  Not bad.
