2013 USPGA Golf Championship
The 2013 USPGA Championship was the 95th renewal of the major and it took place on the East Course of Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, New York. It was Jason Dufner who emerged victorious over the course of the four days from 8th to 11th August as he claimed his maiden major title by finishing two shots clear of Jim Furyk.
Rain suspended play for over an hour on the opening day in New York but there was still enough time for several big names to put themselves in contention as Jim Furyk and Adam Scott shared the lead following five under rounds of 65. Lee Westwood was just a shot further back after he went to close to winning the British Open a month previously.
Scott continued to threaten at Oak Hill Country club as he ended the second day in a tie for second at seven under par, although it was Jason Dufner who was the big mover as he broke the Oak Hill course record courtesy of a quite brilliant seven under par 63. Dufner went into 'moving day' with a two stroke lead.
Dufner saw his lead reduced on day three though as he struck a 71 to slip to second place, one shot behind new clubhouse leader Jim Furyk. Henrik Stenson also moved into contention as he was just one shot back from Dufner and it promised to be an intriguing final day in New York.
Furyk and Dufner would exchange the lead several times during the final round in what proved to be an enthralling fourth day. Dufner eventually emerged victorious though as he shot a 68, while Furyk could only make a 71. leaving Dufner to pick up his first major title, while Henrik Stenson finished a solo third.
