Jim Furyk took control of Group 4 after delivering a 3-and-2 victory over Louis Oosthuizen in round two of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, reaching 1.5 points on the week.
After splitting a point with Hideki Matsuyama on day one, Furyk came out swinging today, knowing he needed a win to stay alive. Some loose play from his opponent certainly helped his cause, as Ooshtuizen bogeyed the 2nd and conceded the 3rd after splashing his approach. The South African didn't give up that easy as he fought his way back to all square thru 10 holes. Furyk responded by winning the next three holes, including a lovely eagle on the par-5 12th after sticking his 261-yard approach to just 5'1". With a Ross Fisher win over Hideki Matsuyama, Furyk is now the leader of Group 4 and controls his own destiny as he readies for the third round match against Fisher. Mar 23 - 2:43 PM

Jim Furyk overcame a seeding deficit of 47 to scrag fourth seed Hideki Matsuyama and claim a half point in round one of the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club.

Through 35 career matches in the tournament Furyk had won 18 and lost 17 so the notion of him being a 50-50 golfer has some validation and he backed that up Wednesday. The two golfers traded early par breakers at 1 and 2 - Matsuyama from 28’7" then Furyk from 20’8". Furyk ceded the 4th to a birdie, but made one of his own at the 6th to resume equality. Around the turn the see-sawing continued: a Matsuyama kick-in red at 9, ditto Furyk at 10. From there on in, however, they mirrored one another, sharing birdie-4s at the 12th, bogey-5s at the 14th and pars elsewhere. Matsuyama (now 6-3-1) faces round one loser Ross Fisher next up, Furyk must encounter the in-form Louis Oosthuizen.

World No. 47 Jim Furyk is at the Club de Golf Chapultepec for the inaugural World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship. UPDATE: Furyk finished T58 on 5-over 289 (77-71-70-71).

Mr. 58 has more top 10s in WGC events than anyone in this week's 77-man field. Though he's never won in 47 tries, he has 19 top 10s, including runner-up three times, most recently at the 2012 Bridgestone (T2). The 46-year-old has won 17 times on TOUR in 562 career starts, most recently at the 2015 RBC Heritage. He's 3-for-4 so far this season with one top 25 doubling as a top 10, a T6 at The RSM Classic. The 2018 Ryder Cup captain arrives off a T66/MDF at the AT&T Pebble Beach and T39 at the weather-plagued Genesis Open (69-69-72-71).
Mar 1 - 4:39 PM

World No. 41 Jim Furyk contests his 20th AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and has a course rotation of Spyglass Hill (SH), Pebble Beach (PB) and Monterey Peninsula (MP).

The newly minted 2018 U.S. Ryder Cup captain is 17-for-19 at Pebble Beach, missing the cut in 2011 and 1999. He has eight top 25s, five for top 10s, including T7 on last visit in 2015, and a best of T3 in 1998 (reduced to 54 holes). The 46-year-old is making his first start of the calendar year and third of the season. He kicked off with a MC at the OHL Classic (74-70) and chased with T6 at The RSM Classic (64-69-68-67) three months ago. Furyk is a 17-time TOUR winner in 560 career events, last winning the 2015 RBC Heritage in a playoff.

World No. 34 Jim Furyk awoke to fire a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of The RSM Classic to finish up his third appearance on 14-under 268, up five spots on the live leaderboard to T7.

The 46-year-old was making his visit to the RSM since solo 3rd back in 2012. It was just his second start of the season after opening with a missed cut (by four) last week at the OHL Classic (74-70). The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident kicked off in bogey-free 64, 69-68 to begin the finale T12 on 11-under. He was sleepwalking thru 10 holes, beginning with 10 straight pars, but then holed-out for eagle-2 at the 11th from 151 yards away. Furyk squared a lone bogey-5 at the 13th (failed sand save) but answered with a two-putt birdie at 15 and walked off with a four-footer for birdie-3 at the 18th.

Jim Furyk is kicking off the new season with a trip to Playa del Carmen, México, for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The 2016-17 campaign has been off and running since October 13th, but Furyk is just now dipping his feet in the pool. The 17-time PGA TOUR winner played just 14 events last season due to a wrist injury, but he's looking to bank some early FedExCup points this time around. Furyk has no course history to lean on at El Camaleón Golf Club, but he's a natural fit given the tight fairways and general lack of yardage as it clocks in right around 7,000 yards. Gamers should give the 46-year-old a strong look in all formats.

Jim Furyk closed his week at the Deutsche Bank Championship with a 1-over-par 38-34=72 to fall outside the top 50 on 1-under 283, putting an end to his 2015-16 season as he sits at 86th on the live FedExCup projections.

The 46-year-old packed a lot of punch into a season that was shortened by a wrist injury. In 13 starts he carded the infamous 58 at the Travelers Championship and recorded a runner-up finish at the U.S. Open. Furyk will now rest up for the 2016-17 campaign, unless he gets called upon by Ryder Cup captain, Davis Love III. With a less-than-stellar track record at the big event, and just 13 starts under his belt in 2016, there are many other candidates to choose from, but Love III may opt for a veteran presence when he makes his first three picks next week. At 86th in the FedExCup standings, his chances to impress the captain are now finished for the year.

Jim Furyk smoothed a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's first round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, currently T3 on the live leaderboard and one shy of early co-leaders Paul Casey and Fabian Gomez.

The 46-year-old raced out with three straight birdies on Nos. 1-3 and 14 pars later, added birdie-4 at the 18th fron 6'11". He pelted 12 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, gaining 3.956 strokes tee-to-green but losing 0.976 strokes with the flat stick. The Pennsylvania native missed two birdie tries from inside of 10 feet, four from inside of 13 feet. His circles at 1 and 2 dropped from 3'11" and 11'8", respectively, adding a 17-footer from the fringe at the par-3 third.

Jim Furyk prepares for his 14th start of the season and his 10th appearance at the Deutsche Bank Championship (in the FedExCup era).

The 46-year-old is one of only four players who have advanced to the BMW Championship in each of the first nine editions of the FEC Playoffs. Before he can get to next week's penultimate Playoffs event, he first has to get past TPC Boston, where he enters 84th in the FEC standings. The Pennsylvania native's T4 here last year is his best finish among four top 10s and has never missed the cut. Since he back-doored a T5 at the Travelers with a closing 58, he's posted finishes of T10 at the Wyndham, where he double bogeyed the 72nd hole, and a T41 last week at The Barclays (70-71-71-73).

Jim Furyk patched together an even-par 33-37=70 in the weather-delayed final round of the Wyndham Championship to finish off his 13th appearance on 13-under 267, a distant eight in arrears to champion Si Woo Kim.

The 46-year-old 3-putted the par-5 16th from 29'8" en route to a lone bogey, but returned from a delay of 1 hour and 22 minutes to double the 18th, 3-putting from 46'3". Par would have netted him a T3, but the '6' on the 72nd hole dropped him all the way down into a four-way T10. The Pennsylvania native began the final frame in a three-way T3 on 13-under, five shy of 54-hole leader Kim. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he was blemish-free thru 14 holes, circling birdies on Nos. 5, 9 and 14, prior to the disastrous finish. Despite making just 12 starts this season due to wrist surgery, Furyk qualified for the Playoffs for a 10th consecutive time at 94th in the FedExCup standings.

Jim Furyk settled for a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship and a three-day tally of 13-under 197, down one place into a three-way T3, five adrift of 54-hole leader Si Woo Kim.

Thru 13 holes, the 46-year-old was sleepwalking with 12 pars and one birdie at the par-4 ninth from 13'8". He awoke from his slumber to ram home a 35-footer for birdie-3 at 14, and then bettered that with a 62'2" bomb for eagle at the par-5 15th. The Pennsylvania native wasn't done yet, adding a 6'5" birdie on the par-3 16th, but then missed his final two greens in regulation, leading to a bogey-bogey finish. He did land 14 GIR and thru 54 holes, is T1 in that stat at 88.89 percent (48/54), and is also T1 in driving accuracy at 80.95 percent (34/42).

Jim Furyk coasted to a 6-under-par 33-31=64 during round two of the Wyndham Championship, arriving at the midpoint on 10-under 130.

Furyk entered the day with 38 straight GIR, dating back to his remarkable final-round 58 at the Travelers. The streak was finally broke today when he missed the green at the par-4 first. Still, he landed an impressive 16 greens thanks to 13-of-14 fairways hit. Furyk did not splash in any putts from outside 10 feet today, but did convert on four in the 6-to-10 foot range, gaining 1.204 strokes putting on the round. The 46-year-old entered the week ranked 106th in the FedExCup race, so he is well on his way to picking up some much needed "cushion" points ahead of next week's Barclays. He is also making quite the impression on Ryder Cup Captain, David Love III.

Jim Furyk cruised to a 4-under-par 32-34=66 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, placing him three strokes off the early pacesetters.

The 46-year-old put on a ball-striking clinic today, striping 12 (of 14) fairways en route to 18-of-18 greens. Adding his strokes gained off-the-tee with strokes gained approach-the-green, he gained 4.987 strokes over the field. Furyk entered the week ranked only 106th in the FedExCup race since he missed a majority of the season while recovering from a wrist injury. This is his first appearance at Sedgefield Country Club since a T9 in 2011. Furyk is also making an 11th-hour push for a Captain's Pick onto the American Ryder Cup squad.

Jim Furyk twirled a bogey-free 12-under-par 27-31=58 in today's final round of the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, setting or tying numerous tournament and all-time PGA TOUR records along the way. He's vaulted 65 places on the live leaderboard to solo fifth with a 72-hole aggregate of 11-under 269.

The 46-year-old, playing his 23rd consecutive TOUR season and his 1,959th career round, hit ALL 18 greens in regulation en route to the lowest round of golf in TOUR history -- approximately 1.5 million rounds have been played. Six players have previously shot 59, the most recent was Furyk himself in R2 of the 2013 BMW Championship at Conway Farms GC (par 71). That week, he carded one eagle, 11 birdies and one bogey. Today, the Pennsylvania native recorded 10 birdies, five from between 14 and 24 feet, and tallied seven straight on Nos. 6-12 (new personal best). He set his sights early with a hole-out eagle from 135 yards away at the par-4 third and wrapped his scoring with birdie-2 at the 16th (23'8"). The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident striped 13 (of 14) fairways and required only 24 putts. Almost as an aside, he also breaks the tournament and course record of 60, shot by amateur Patrick Cantlay in 2011/R2.

Jim Furyk crafted a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of the Travelers Championship to post 1-under 139, up 68 places on the live leaderboard to T60.

The 46-year-old is making his first visit to the Travelers since a MC in 2011 (68-69). Overall, it's just his fifth appearance, which dates back to a missed cut in 1994 during his rookie season on TOUR. The Pennsylvania native kicked off with an indifferent 3-over 73, outpacing two birdies with three bogeys and a double bogey-6. Beginning off No. 10 tee for Round 2, he improved to 12 (of 14) fairways and doubled his first-round output to 16 greens in regulation. Furyk circled Nos. 13, 18, 6 and 7, all from greater than nine feet with a long of 38'2" on the par-5 sixth. He kept his card clean with a pair of seven-foot par saves on holes five and nine.
