Jason Dufner has been on a tear ever since he paid a visit to the Cleveland Browns.
That’s documented, not sarcasm.
OK, it’s sarcasm, too.
But there’s no denying Dufner is playing some of the best golf of his career, and in Friday’s second round of the PGA Championship he matched the record for lowest round in a major, ever, with a 7-under 63.
He had a putt on No. 18 for the record come up short. At 9-under, he leads the tournament by two shots headed to the weekend at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y. His 63 set a new Oak Hill competitive course record.
Dufner lived in the Cleveland suburbs until he was 11 and still has family in Northeast Ohio.He finished tied for fourth last week at the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational in Akron.
He became the 24th player ever to shoot 63 in a major on Friday. Before last week, he had just one top 10 finish in 2013.
