DUBLIN, Ohio (KNSS) - For the fifth time in his career, Jason Dufner is a winner on golf's PGA Tour.

Dufner clinched the championship at The Memorial on Sunday, sinking a 30-foot putt for par on the final hole, finished at 13-under for the tournament. The Memorial is a tournament run by golf legend Jack Nicklaus.

It was only his second win on the tour since winning his only Major, the PGA Championship, in 2013.

For his win on Sunday, Dufner earned more than $1.5 million, putting him at $2.7 million in winnings for the year.

In 2001, Dufner won what was then the Wichita Open on the Buy.com Tour; the event is now known as the Air Capital Classic.
