Rochester, NY (Sports Network) - He may have stumbled on the final two holes, but Jason Dufner did more than enough over the first 16 to win the 95th PGA Championship.

Dufner had four birdies and 12 pars in the first 16 holes en route to a closing 2-under 68. He ended his first major championship victory at 10-under- par 270 at Oak Hill.

The 36-year-old had coughed up the lead late in the 2011 PGA Championship, then lost to Keegan Bradley in a playoff. Dufner's stellar iron play on this Sunday wouldn't allow that to happen.

Jim Furyk, the third-round leader, stumbled to a 1-over 71 to end alone in second at minus-8. The 2003 U.S. Open champion failed to hold the 54-hole lead for a fifth straight time in which he was in that position.
