Golf: Dufner matches major record 63 to grab PGA lead
ROCHESTER, New York (AFP) - American Jason Dufner matched the low 18-hole score in major golf history on Friday, firing a seven-under par 63 to take the clubhouse lead at the 95th PGA Championship.
On an Oak Hill Country Club course that was drenched by rain showers all morning, Dufner fired five birdies and an eagle to stand two strokes atop the leaderboard at nine-under 131 for 36 holes in the US$8 million (S$10 million) tournament.
Dufner became the 24th player to shoot 63 in a major. The feat has been done 26 total times, with Australian Greg Norman and Fiji's Vijay Singh accomplishing it twice.
Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Nick Price and Nick Faldo are among the other players to shoot 63 in a major.
