The PGA Championship: Day 4
August 14 2011
7:00 pm Dufner, Bradley in playoff
JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Jason Dufner squandered what was once a four-shot lead and finished regulation tied with Keegan Bradley at 8 under Sunday at Atlanta Athletic Club.
Dufner got as low as 11 under but bogeyed Nos. 15, 16 and 17 to shoot 69. Bradley, meanwhile, recovered from a triple bogey on the 15th hole with birdies on Nos. 16 and 17 to shoot 68.
There will now be a three-hole aggregate-score playoff on Nos. 16, 17 and 18.
If a tie still remains, there will be a hole-by-hole playoff beginning on the 18th, and, if necessary, on to holes 10, 17 and 18 repeated until the winner is determined.
There have been three, three-hole aggregate-score playoffs, in PGA Championship history:
2000: Tiger Woods defeated Bob May at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky.
2004: Vijay Singh defeated Chris DiMarco and Justin Leonard at Whistling Straits (Straits Course) in Kohler, Wis.
2010: Martin Kaymer defeated Bubba Watson at Whistling Straits (Straits Course) in Kohler, Wis.
