Ken DUKE - U.S.A. - 2013: Winner of the Travelers Golf Championship.

On June 23rd 2013, in his 187th start and after three runner-up finishes in his career, Duke broke through to

win his maiden event on the PGA Tour,  at the Travelers Championship. He beat Chris Stroud with a birdie on

the second extra hole of a sudden-death playoff. He entered the final round two shots back of the leaders,

but shot a final round 66 to take the lead in the clubhouse before Stroud chipped in on the final green to

force a playoff. In the playoff, after both players made par on the first extra hole, Duke played his approach

to within three feet. Stroud who was about 30 feet away, could not make a birdie, leaving Duke to convert

from three feet for his first PGA Tour victory. (Wikipedia). He is pictured at the British Open.
