The PGA WEST TPC Stadium Course in La Quinta, CA, played host to this relatively unique tournament. Every player has a round on each of the the three courses before a cut determines who is in the final round on Sunday.

With all the attention on Abu Dhabi this admittedly wasn’t the strongest field, however, there were still some big names vying for the $1.05 million on offer.
Dufner wobbled a bit on the back nine to card a 70, whilst the Swedish Lingmerth shot -4 to finish on 65. Duf played this exceptional recovery on 17 to keep his chances alive.

Heart was in his mouth…

Duf had some luck which he capitalised on…

Dufner then has this 10-footer to match the Swede and force him to play an extra hole..

Eventually Duf took the bull by the horns and finished the job. It’s a big win after a tough couple of years, congrats to the most chiller looking guy out there.

Here’s how they finished.
