Jim Furyk heads to the RBC Heritage in South Carolina looking for a little consistency after a mediocre start to his 2018 PGA Tour season.
The 47-year-old will be playing in just his fifth event of the season, and he missed the cut last time we saw him in the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship. The 2018 Ryder Cup Captain is certainly in the twilight of his career, but he still has the potential to make some noise on shorter courses. His best attribute over the years has been his ability to keep it on an even keel when things aren't necessarily going to plan. Still, he isn't a great DFS option since his last top-10 showing came back in 2017 at The RSM Classic. Apr 12 - 1:42 AM

Past champion and World No. 235 Jim Furyk tossed up a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the Valspar Championship to conclude on 6-under 278, up 18 places to T10 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Furyk finished a season-best solo 7th.

The 47-year-old, in on a sponsor invite, won here in 2010, later winning the FedExCup that same year. If the top 10 holds, it'll be his fourth in 10 tries, first since T7 in 2013. This was the Florida resident's third start of the season, all on sponsor invites, and is his second cash (T46, Honda). The 2018 Ryder Cup Captain posted rounds of 70-73-69-66 and carded 13 birdies versus seven bogeys, six against one in the finale. His most recent top 10 was T6 at the 2017 RSM 19 starts ago.

Jim Furyk will be making his first start of the 2017-18 PGA TOUR season as he sets his eyes on Riviera Country Club ahead of this week's Genesis Open.

Foregoing a career-money exemption, Furyk has opted to play out of the Past Champions category this season. That means starts will be limited, likely by design, after a disappointing 2016-17 season. A light schedule in 2018 will allow him to find his game without any pressure and will also allow him to focus on the task of captaining the U.S. Ryder Cup squad this fall. As for this week, the 17-time TOUR winner has cracked the field through a sponsor's invitation. Looking at his long history at Riviera CC, Furyk is 17-for-20 here with his last missed cut coming in 2008 (eight cuts made since). With no PGA TOUR starts under his belt since last year's PGA Championship in August, the form element of his game will be a complete wildcard for any gamers looking to invest this week.

Jim Furyk will spend the 2017-18 campaign on Past Champion status, keeping his focus on the task of captaining the 2018 Ryder Cup squad.

The 17-time TOUR winner failed to play his way into the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time in his career last season. Furyk was returning from a wrist injury and never got back to full form. Given his $67 Million in career earnings, Furyk could have easily played with a career earnings exemption in 2018. Instead, he'll likely keep a quiet schedule, attempt to play his way back into form (without pushing it), while keeping his focus on the 2018 Ryder Cup. The American will be playing the role of captain when they head to Paris in September. The years of 20-start seasons may be a thing of the past for Furyk and we could see him drift into the Stricker category of playing a limited schedule each year (AKA Semi-Retirement).

World No. 94 and 2018 Ryder Cup Team Captain Jim Furyk contests his 23rd consecutive PGA Championship and arrives in Charlotte 156th in the FedExCup standings.

The 47-year-old has 10 top 25s in the season's final major, six for top 10s, and has cashed in nine straight. His best was solo 2nd in 2013 (Oak Hill, 7,163 yards) where he was the 54-hole leader, closing in 1-over 71. The Pennsylvania native chased with T5, T30, and T73 last year. Overall, this is his 87th major appearance with 41 top-25 finishes and 23 top 10s, highlighted by his lone major title at the 2003 U.S. Open (Olympia Fields CC). Furyk is 10-for-17 on the season with two top 25s, including a T23 in his last major start at the U.S. Open, and has just one top 10, a T6 at the RSM back in October. The Florida resident won his 11th (of 17) TOUR titles at Quail Hollow Club in 2006 (playoff).

World No. 86 and 2018 Ryder Cup Team Captain Jim Furyk is in Opelika, Alabama, for his debut in the Barbasol Championship.

The 47-year-old is top-ranked in OWGR in the opposite-field event and second-dog on the bookmaker's food chain at a pre-tourney 16/1 outright.

World No. 79 and 2018 Ryder Cup Team Captain Jim Furyk returns for his sixth Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands, site of his historic Sunday 58 to close out last year's edition, posting the mother of all back-door top 10s, climbing 65 places on the leaderboard to T5. UPDATE: Furyk posted rounds of 67-68-72-68, currently T24 on the leaderboard.

Furyk was one of 18 players last year to make the cut on the number, chasing an opening 3-over 73 with bogey-free 66, saving par from 7'0" at the ninth (his final hole) to make the weekend. He was over-par again in R3 (72), beginning R4 in the third group of the morning, 5 hours and 19 minutes before the final pairing was scheduled out. In his 23rd season on TOUR and 1,959th career round, Furyk pelted all 18 greens, carding one hole-out eagle-2 and 10 birdies, including a personal best seven straight, en route to besting the field average in R4 by 10.658 strokes. He became the first player to shoot 58 on TOUR and the first to record two sub-60 laps. The 47-year-old checks in this week 137th in the FedExCup and off a T23 at the U.S. Open, which was the best finish of 11 U.S. Open champs that were at Erin Hills, and ended a streak of six straight missed cuts on TOUR.

World No. 62 and 2-time champ Jim Furyk bogeyed four of his final six holes en route to a 3-over-par 40-34=74 in today's second round of the RBC Heritage and at even-par 68-74=142, missed the cut by one shot.

A total of 74 pros from a field of 131 pros and one amateur made the cut of 1-under 141. Furyk, the 2015 and 2010 winner, both in playoffs, entered as the event's all-time money leader with $3.85M. This week, he's leaving with nothing, missing the cut at Harbour Town for the first time since 2009.

World No. 62 and 2-time RBC Heritage champ Jim Furyk is at Harbour Town Golf Links for his 18th Heritage and arrives at 121st in the FedExCup standings.

The 46-year-old ranks 4th on the TOUR's Career Money List with $67.6M. He's amassed $3.85M of that here with the two wins and two runner-ups among eight top 10s, and is the event's all-time money leader. Furyk won the 2015 edition in a 2-man playoff over Kevin Kisner, but was unable to defend last year (recovering from wrist surgery). He also won a 2-man playoff in 2010 (Brian Davis) and was back-to-back runner-up in 2005 and 2006. The 2018 Ryder Cup captain checks in off a T41 (Valspar), T30 at Match Play (1-1-1 record) and a missed cut at the Masters (by one) after rounds of 78-73 in his 85th overall major appearance.

World No. 59 and Mr. 58 Jim Furyk plays his 20th Masters Tournament and has a first-round tee time of 8:44AM (EDT) with Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen and Kevin Chappell.

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.

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).

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.
