JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Keegan Bradley won the PGA Championship with an amazing comeback in regulation, then a three-hole playoff win over Jason Dufner at the Atlanta Athletic Club.

Bradley went to the 16th hole Sunday down by five strokes, but he made two straight birdies and Dufner bogeyed three holes in a row to leave them tied at 8-under 272.

In the playoff, Bradley made a 4-foot birdie at the 16th hole to gain the upper hand. Dufner nearly holed out from the fairway, but missed a 6-foot birdie try.

Bradley was in command by two shots when Dufner three-putted the 17th for a bogey. Dufner made birdie at the tough finishing hole but it wasn't enough. Bradley tapped in from a foot away to claim the Wanamaker Trophy by a single stroke.
