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. Nov 20 - 4:19 PM

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.
Sep 2 - 2:50 PM

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.
Aug 21 - 7:27 PM

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).
Aug 20 - 7:22 PM

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.
Aug 19 - 6:38 PM

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.
Aug 18 - 3:10 PM

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.
Aug 7 - 12:34 PM

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.
Aug 5 - 1:08 PM

Jim Furyk enjoyed a bogey-free 3-under-par 32-35=67 in today's second round of the 98th PGA Championship and post a two-day total of 1-over 141.

The 46-year-old opened his 22nd appearance with an uncharacteristic 4-over 74 (two birdies, six bogeys), his worst showing since 5-over 77 in R2 of the 2012 edition 15 rounds ago. He rebounded on Day 2 with three birdies on 14 greens in regulation, going 4-for-4 in scrambles, including 3-for-3 in sand saves. Furyk is currently up 64 places on the leaderboard to T56, safely inside the cut line, and will play the weekend in the championship for a ninth consecutive time.
Jul 29 - 3:33 PM

Past champ Jim Furyk crafted a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the 116th U.S. Open to post 1-under 279, up 16 spots on the live leaderboard to T5, good for the early 72-hole clubhouse lead and the low lap in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Furyk finished in a three-way T2, three back of champion Dustin Johnson.

The Pennsylvania native and 2003 U.S. Open champ trailed 54-hole leader Shane Lowry by 10 shots after opening his 22nd appearance in 71-68-74, but was just two off the overnight top 10. He kicked off at 1:30 p.m. ET, two hours prior to the final pairing, and landed nine (of 14) fairways, pelted 14 greens in regulation, requiring 28 putts. The 46-year-old birdied Nos. 1, 5, 7, 11 and 17 before trouble off the tee at the par-4 18th led to a lone bogey. It's his first top 10 in just his fifth start of the season, supplanting a previous best of T35 at THE PLAYERS, and his seventh top 10 at the U.S. Open.
Jun 19 - 5:54 PM

Past champ Jim Furyk crafted a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the two-day second round of the U.S. Open to reach the halfway point on 1-under 139, currently T7 on the leaderboard and three back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Dustin Johnson.

The 2003 U.S. Open champion didn't kick off his 22nd appearance until Friday, and got 35 holes in before play was suspended for darkness. He steadied a 1-over 71 in his first 18 holes, outpacing one birdie with two bogeys. The 46-year-old went off No. 10 tee for his second frame and raced out with three birdies over his first six holes before bogey-4 at 16, reaching the turn 2-under. He sandwiched birdie at the par-4 second with bogeys at 1 and 3, adding birdie-3 at the seventh from four feet. The Pennsylvania native two-putted the par-3 eighth and then returned on Saturday for an up-and-down par on the par-4 ninth. He striped 10 (of 14) fairways, hit 12 greens in regulation and totaled 28 putts.
Jun 18 - 7:40 AM

A total of 78 players made the 36-hole cut on 1-over 145 at the Wells Fargo Championship but at 4-over 73-75=148, past champ Jim Furyk wasn't among them.

This was Furyk's first action since T4 at the Deutsche Bank last September. Despite the missed cut, his return from a 34-week layoff following wrist surgery has to be deemed a success all things considered. The 45-year-old and 2006 Wells Fargo champ completed 36 holes uneventfully insofar as the wrist is concerned, and circled four birdies against four bogeys and two doubles. He's scheduled to tee it up at THE PLAYERS next week where he'll be making his 21st appearance. Joining Furyk with early exits include: 146- Kevin Streelman ... 147- Henrik Stenson; Ryan Moore; Bill Haas; Shane Lowry; Kevin Kisner; Patrick Rodgers; Bryson DeChambeau ... 148- Charles Howell III; Jason Kokrak; Byeong-Hun An; Justin Thomas ... 149- Webb Simpson.
