Top of the world: Dufner celebrates PGA title at Empire State Building in return to rooftops

The last time Jason Dufner was on a Manhattan rooftop, he was down on one knee proposing to his future wife.

On Tuesday, Dufner was hoisting the PGA Championship trophy on top of the Empire State Building, two days after winning his first major.

The Alabama golfer proposed at a restaurant overlooking the Hudson River amid fireworks on the Fourth of July in 2011. Amanda Dufner was on the green to embrace him Sunday after the final round at Oak Hill in Pittsford, N.Y.

She says her stoic husband, who managed to crack a smile and pump his fist after the victory, didn't say much since they were "both kind of in shock."

They plan a beach vacation before he plays in the upcoming FedEx Cup playoffs.
