Stat of the Day: Duke's short game

By PGATOUR.COM staff

Ken Duke ranked in the top 10 in three major statistical categories in winning the Travelers Championship for his first PGA TOUR victory on Sunday. He was 10th in driving accuracy, but Duke is one of the straightest hitters on TOUR (ranks first on TOUR).

What helped Duke the most is ranking 10th in strokes gained-putting -- picking up 1.204 shots per round on the field average -- and third in scrambling. These are traditionally two weaker parts of Duke's game. Not on Sunday. Take a look.
