We take you to the 95th PGA Championship, where Jim Furyk came in with the 1-stroke lead, but could he hang on at Oak Hill?

Tiger Woods way out of contention and missed his bogey putt at the 9th. He shot a 70 today, reaching a total of 28-over in weekend rounds in the last eight majors.

Then third round leader Jason Dufner took his 2nd shot to the par 4, 5th less than two feet for birdie. Dufner would move to 10-under.

Then to Furyk at the 6th, who read the long birdie putt perfectly as it fell right in the heart of the cup moving him to 10-under.

But Dufner would be too much, at the 8th he lands his second shot about six feet past the hole, and it nearly spinned back for an eagle. He would tap in for birdie putting him at 11-under-par.

Then at the 16th he put his approach shot within about two feet for a tap-in birdie, which he would do, and go on to win the PGA Championship, getting his first career major title and a little redemption after blowing a big lead in the 2011 PGA Championship.
