Jason Dufner
Before he was a major champion and an Internet sensation, Dufner spent nearly a decade bouncing back and forth between the PGA and Tours. It wasn't until 2009 when he experienced any real success on the highest level and not until 2012, at 35, when he won his first PGA Tour title at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. He hasn't looked back, winning two more times, including the 2013 PGA Championship at Oak Hill.
