The 2011 PGA Championship in Atlanta is becoming more and more like the 2003 PGA Championship at the Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.
That year the no name Shaun Micheel defeated the no name Chad Campbell by two strokes at -4 to take the title.
In 2011, we have the names of Jason Dufner, Brendan Steele and Keegan Bradley, all Americans that are basically no names on the PGA Tour, leading the pack. Dufner, from Cleveland, is at -7 and at the age of 34, has never won on a PGA Tour event. Like Serena Williams in the WTA, Dufner is ranked 80th in the world, and making noise this weekend.
Dufner is tied at the top of the leaderboard with Steele, ranked 121st in the world. Unlike Dufner however, Steele has one career win, which came at the Valero Texas Open in April. Steele is a familiar name to Edmonton golf fans, as he finished second at the 2006 Telus Edmonton Open to American Stephen Gangluff.
