2016 Highlights
  • Advanced to the FedExCup Playoffs for the eighth time in his career, making it to the TOUR Championship for the fifth time in the No. 27 position in the FedExCup standings. Finished T8 at East Lake to end his season No. 19 in the FedExCup standings, his best result since 2013 when he finished at the same spot. Recorded 12 top-25 finishes from 28 starts. Of those, six were top-10 showings, including a win at the CareerBuilder Challenge
  • Making his first start at The RSM Classic, posted rounds of 67-70-66-69 to finish T9. It was his first top-10 finish since a T8 in late-May 2015 at the AT&T Byron Nelson
  • Teamed with Brandt Snedeker to win the Franklin Templeton Shootout in mid-December with a final-round 11-under-par 61. Their winning total of 30-under-par 186 was the highest winning score since Ian Poulter and Dustin Johnson finished at 30-under 186 in 2010
  • Finished T9 at the Sony Open in Hawaii, for consecutive top-10 finishes on the PGA TOUR for the first time since matching T9 finishes at the 2014 World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play and WGC-Cadillac Championship. It also marked his first top-10 in eight starts at the Sony Open in Hawaii, with his previous-best finish a T13 in 2007
  • A week later, claimed his fourth career TOUR title at the CareerBuilder Challenge in sudden death over David Lingmerth. Took a two-stroke lead into the final round at 23-under, but was caught after 72 holes by David Lingmerth, who posted a bogey-free 7-under 65. Shot of the tournament came from Dufner at the par-3 17th Sunday. When his tee shot found the rocks over the green, a remarkable recovery chip tapped the pin, stopping just inches away. In sudden death, a clutch, seven-foot putt for par on the first extra hole, No. 18, sent the pair back to the 18th tee for a second extra hole. When Lingmerth's approach found the water hazard, Dufner's par was good enough for the win
  • Finished 9-under 271 and T6 at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, eight strokes behind champion Jordan Spieth. The former AT&T Byron Nelson champion was seeking to become the 16th player to win the "DFW Double". With his fourth top-10 of the season, moved to No. 14 in the FedExCup standings
  • Two starts later, finished T8 at Oakmont Country Club for his third top-10 in 10 U.S. Open starts, to go with back-to-back T4s at the 2012 & 2013 U.S. Opens
  • In his first appearance at the TOUR Championship since 2013, posted a 4-under 66 in the third round to sit sixth through 54 holes. Closed with a final-round 70 to finish T8, marking his sixth top-10, the most in a season since 2012 (8).
