                  === Dufner up 2 with 3 to go at Oak Hill ===
 Rochester,  NY (Sports Network) - Jason Dufner and Jim Furyk have matched pars
 on the first six holes of the back nine at the 95th PGA Championship as Dufner
 has kept his 2-shot lead.
 Dufner  left  a 15-foot  birdie putt  short at 13,  but tapped  in for par. He
 missed  the next two greens, and used fairway woods to putt inside two feet on
 both  holes.  Dufner calmly tapped in  for par at 14  and 15 to stay two clear
 with three holes to go as he tries for his first major championship title.
 Furyk  came up  short of the 13th green,  but chipped to two feet and made the
 par  effort. He 2-putted  for par on the next two holes, including making a 6-
 foot par saver at 15 to stay two back.
 Henrik  Stenson  and Jonas Blixt share  third at minus-8, while Masters winner
 Adam Scott is alone in fifth at 6-under par.
 Scott Piercy owns the clubhouse lead at minus-5 after he closed with a 5-under
 65. That 65 included two bogeys in the last four holes.
 Four-time champion Tiger Woods went out in 3-over 38 with a bogey at eight and
 a  double-bogey at nine.  Around the turn, he birdied three of four holes from
 the  12th to  get back to even-par  for his round. Woods parred the last three
 holes to finish at 4-over 284.
 Miguel Angel Jimenez poured in five straight birdies from the 12th to the 16th
 en  route  to a 3-under  67. That  was the second  time this week that Jimenez
 birdied five in a row, as he also did it in the first round from the second to
 the sixth. The Spaniard ended at 2-over 282.
 Tim  Clark, who finished third at the 2003 PGA at Oak Hill, recorded the first
 hole-in-one  of the week. He aced the par-3 11th, but still struggled to a 75,
 which left him at plus-10.
 British  Open  champ and Phil Mickelson  mixed four birdies, a triple bogey, a
 double  bogey and  a bogey in a round  of 2-over 72. The 2007 PGA winner ended
 the tournament at 12-over 292.
