Jason Dufner hasn’t won on Tour since 2013 but you wouldn’t have guessed that based on his sizzling performance today. The Duf aced the par-3 16th to make his second consecutive eagle during Round 2 at the Memorial Tournament.

Dufner’s scorecard has been a colorful one, to say the least: a double-bogey, a bogey, and a handful of birdies added up to a 5-under par 67.

 

 

Dufner battled neck and shoulder problems in 2014 but is showing signs of turning around his game. He’s dropped 20 pounds and has two Top-10s in 12 starts this year. Add these eagles to the one he made on the par-5 15th on Thursday, and the world is once again paying attention to Jason Dufner.

Dufner finished his second round at 11-under, just one shot behind leader David Lingmerth of Sweden.

Take a look at Friday’s putt on 15. We’ll be eagle-watching tomorrow, Duf!
