Jim Furyk went into the final round with a one-shot lead at nine-under-par over Jason Dufner, but was tied for the lead when Dufner birdied the fourth hole. At the fifth hole, Dufner would take the lead outright with a birdie to go 10-under-par, but Furyk regained a share of the lead with a birdie of his own on six. At No. 8 Dufner would take the lead with a birdie to move to 11-under-par, and from that point onwards he was the sole leader. Furyk bogeyed the ninth hole and from that point until the end of the championship the margin was affixed at two strokes. At No. 16, both golfers made birdie to go to 12-under and 10-under-par respectively, however at the subsequent two holes they made bogeys to finish out their respective rounds at 10-under and 8-under-par. Dufner shot a two-under-par round of 68 to Furyk's one-over-par, 71.[deprecated source] Henrik Stenson, who started the day two shots out of the lead, pulled within one stroke after eagling the fourth hole, but never really threatened the leaders after that and finished the tournament in solo third place.
