Dufner's birdie putt on 18 wins Byron Nelson

Posted:

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Jason Dufner made a 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole Sunday for a one-stroke victory at the Byron Nelson Championship, his second win in three weeks.

Dufner's winning putt wrapped up a closing 3-under 67 for an 11-under 269 total, one ahead of Dicky Pride.

Dufner got his first PGA Tour win three weeks ago at New Orleans, a week before getting married.

Pride, whose only PGA Tour in a 20-year professional career came in 1994, was at 10 under after a par-saving 22-foot putt at No. 18 after hitting his drive into the water.

J.J. Henry, in the final group with Dufner, made double bogey at No. 17 to lose the lead. Dufner then made a tap-in par and had a big drive on No. 18.
