Pro golfer Jason Dufner was born on March 24, 1977 in Cleveland, Ohio. His family moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida when he was 14. He began playing golf at St. Thomas Aquinas High School during his sophomore year. In college, he was a walk-on at Auburn University, where he earned Honorable Mention All-American in 1997.
After graduating with a degree in Economics, Jason turned professional in 2000. The ensuing eight years saw Jason make five trips to Q-School while bouncing back and forth between the Web.com and PGA Tours. He initially earned a PGA TOUR card in 2004 but made just 11 of 28 cuts and returned to the Web.com the following season. At the conclusion of the 2008 season, he made his fifth – and final – trip to Q-School, finished 11th and has not looked back. His breakout season came in 2009, when he finished 11th in the FedEx Cup and earned more than $2 million.
This began a streak in which Jason was ranked in the top-10 of the Official World Golf Rankings for 50 consecutive weeks. During this period, Jason represented the United States in both the 2012 Ryder Cup and the 2013 Presidents Cup. In 2013, Jason earned his first major by winning the PGA Championship. He tied the record for all-time lowest round in a major and broke the course record at Oak Hill Country Club by shooting a 63 in the second round. Jason’s most recent victory came at The 2017 Memorial Tournament.
