DUFNER ENDS WINLESS DROUGHT OF OVER 2 YEARS
JASON Dufner clinched his first title in more than two years with a nerve-jangling play-off victory over David Lingmerth at the CareerBuilder Challenge in La Quinta, California, on Sunday.
Swede Lingmerth's bid for a second career win on the circuit ended with a splash and double-bogey at the second extra hole, the par-four 18th, after he hit his approach into water, while Dufner safely two-putted from long range for a decisive par.
