Jason Dufner, who lost a four-shot lead with four holes to play in the 2011 US PGA Championship, atoned for that collapse by closing with a 68 for a two-shot victory over Jim Furyk. Dufner all but clinched it with a wedge into 2 feet for birdie on the 16th hole. Dufner and Furyk each made bogey on the last two holes. Dufner became the sixth player to win a major with a 63, which he shot in the second round.
Last time at Valhalla: Tiger Woods won his third straight major of 2000, making a 6-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole to force a playoff with Bob May and beating him in the first three-hole playoff in the US PGA Championship.
