Jason Dufner: 2017 Memorial Tournament Winner

Memorial Recap: Dufner Wins The Memorial Tournament

Never give up and never lose hope. Those are the lessons we can learn from our 2017 Memorial Tournament winner, Jason Dufner. His victory at last year’s Memorial almost didn’t happen after he lost his big lead on Saturday by scoring a 5-over-par 77. That poor performance put him four shots off the lead heading into the final round.

"Yesterday was not my best day," Dufner said of his 77. "But I had to get over it quick. It's a 72-hole tournament, there's a lot of things that can happen out there. I knew I was still in the mix."

Jason finished strong by playing his best golf on the back nine Sunday to close with a 4-under 68 and win by three shots.

Jason beat one of the best fields on the PGA TOUR to claim the Memorial Tournament trophy and a special congratulations handshake from Jack Nicklaus. The leaderboard featured some of the top names in golf, including: Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson, Jordan Speith, Jason Day and Phil Mickelson.
