Rochester: Jason Dufner set aside emotional scars from squandering a major title two years ago to win the PGA Championship on Sunday, holding off Jim Furyk despite a bogey-bogey finish.

The 36-year-old American, who had a four-shot lead with four holes to play but lost the 2011 PGA Championship, fired a final-round two-under par 68 to finish on 10-under par 270 for 72 holes, beating Furyk by two strokes.

"It's pretty neat to come back and win a PGA to be honest with you," Dufner said. "You always carry those scars with you."
