(Pittsford, NY) -- Jason Dufner held on down the stretch to win his first major at the 95th PGA Championship from Oak Hill Country Club in New York. Dufner says he's elated to have accomplished this feat.

He was 10-under. This is his third career PGA TOUR win, with the previous two coming last year at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and the Byron Nelson Championship. Jim Furyk finished in second with a minus-eight after bogeys on the final two holes. Last year's winner of this event Rory McIlroy ended at minus-three. Tiger Woods shot an even par fourth round to close out the Championship at plus-four. Phil Mickelson was two-over for a plus-12 overall.
