2011 PGA Championship Leaderboard: Jason Dufner & Keegan Bradley Headed To A Playoff

Jason Dufner looked like he was in good shape with a four shot lead down the back nine, and a three shot lead and three holes remaining. But Dufner bogeyed the 16th and 17th holes and fell back to the pack at -8, leading

Keegan Bradley looked like he was out of it after a triple bogey on 15 that pushed him to -6 and knocked him five behind Dufner, but he rallied with birdies on 16 and 17 to push himself back up into -8. At the 18th hole, Bradley had a chance to take the outright lead, but he knocked his very long putt left.  Dufner had a similar chance at 18 to win, but it was a long putt as well and also went left. Dufner ended up needing to two putt, and we're now heading to a playoff.

Here comes the three hole aggregate playoff! Best score after the 16th, 17th and 18th holes takes home the prize. If not, more golf! The PGA Championship is going to overtime! The excitement is palpable.
