Jim Furyk has withdrawn from next week's Hero World Challenge due to a 'tweaked back," according to Mike Antolini of the Tiger Woods Foundation.
Patrick Reed replaced Furyk in the 18-man field. The 16-time PGA TOUR winner hasn't played anywhere since finishing last of four at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in mid-October. He's opened each of the last three seasons at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, so it's possible that we won't see him again until Feb. 12-15 when the next edition of that tournament is contested.

Jim Furyk is like a fine wine that gets better with age as he bagged $5,987,395 during the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season.

The 44-year old from West Chester, Pennsylvania, finished on the podium four times last season, all four going in the record books as runner-up finishes. Furyk has made a living on the old adage of fairways and greens, and neither of those skills have declined for him. After another disappointing Ryder Cup performance, he will look to shake it off in 2015 and make a run at his first TOUR victory since the 2010 TOUR Championship.

Jim Furyk looks to right the Ryder Cup ship this week at Gleneagles in the 40th edition of the Ryder Cup.

Furyk is too good to be the owner of his current 9-17-4 Ryder Cup record. Given his season form, it would be tough to sit him in any session, until you remember he sports a 1-8-1 in four-ball matches. After posting top 15s in 14-of-21 events this year, we could see Furyk throw the Ryder Cup history books to the side and run the table this week. On the flip side, history often repeats itself.

Jim Furyk fell just short with a 1-under-par 32-37=69 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, finishing three shots back in a share of second place.

Furyk came out blazing with a 3-under front nine to reach the turn at 10-under for the tournament and just one back of the leader. The back nine wasn't so kind, as three bogeys outweighed his lone back-nine birdie. Following the script of the entire 2013-14 season, Furyk contended for four straight rounds, but fell short in the end. This will go in the book as his fourth runner-up finish of the season and his fifth top 10 at East Lake.
Sep 14 - 6:26 PM

Jim Furyk coasted to a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in his third round of the TOUR Championship, taking over as the clubhouse leader through 54 holes.

Furyk entered the week as the leader in FedExCup Playoffs top 10s with 14, and he's positioned himself for another one this week. He played the first 11 holes at even-par before turning up the volume, birdieing three of the next five holes. Furyk's last victory came at the 2010 TOUR Championship, and with an aggregate of 7-under 203, he has a chance to do it again on Sunday.

Jim Furyk added a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in his second round of the TOUR Championship to post 4-under 136 at the halfway point, two strokes in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Furyk went just 2-for-6 in scrambling with four bogeys, so today's effort was the latest evidence of his grit and grinder mentality. He circled five birdies, including on both par 5s. His longest measured just 10'11" at the par-4 17th, but he also logged a zero-putt four-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 fourth. It's Furyk's 28th red number in his last 31 rounds. We challenge you to copy that feat in a video game, much less against PGA TOUR competition on world-class tracks.

Jim Furyk twirled a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of the TOUR Championship, good for a piece of the clubhouse lead.

Believe it or not, this is Furyk's first first-round red number since he opened the Playoffs with a 66 at Ridgewood. Meanwhile, he's been under par in now 27 of his last 30 rounds dating back to the finale at the U.S. Open. Today at East Lake, Furyk striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. He settled for two bogeys, but compensated with five birdies, three of which ranging 13-16 feet.

Jim Furyk claimed the FedExCup with a victory at the 2010 TOUR Championship and returns to East Lake this week for another shot.

Furyk's 2013-14 campaign has been remarkably consistent, with three runner-up finishes and seven other starts yielding top-10 finishes. In six attempts, he's never finished lower than T14 at the TOUR Championship during the Playoffs era. Entering the week seventh in the FedExCup standings, a win would be a fitting end to a season which has seen Furyk knocking on the winner's circle all year long.

Jim Furyk concluded his week at the BMW Championship with a 4-under-par 33-33=66 and is safely inside the top 10 at 9-under 271.

Furyk bagged five birdies and surrendered just one bogey on his lap around Cherry Hills. Proximity was a key to his success, as each of his birdies fell from inside 10 feet. He was second in driving accuracy and fifth in GIR at the time of his posting, and all facets of his game appear to be clicking as he turns his attention towards East Lake. Considering the TOUR Championship in 2010 was his last PGA TOUR win, perhaps he's peaking at the right time.

Jim Furyk flew under the radar with a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of the BMw Championship and finds himself inside the top 10 at 5-under 205.

Furyk circled five birdies and squared a pair of bogeys on his tour of Cherry Hills CC, with three of those birdies falling from between 12 and 20 feet. While the putter was his calling card, his 13 GIR were also impressive. Still winless since the 2010 TOUR Championship, he is certainly hanging around close enough to make a move with a hot final round.
Sep 6 - 5:25 PM

Jim Furyk spun a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the halfway point in 4-under 138.

His opening 1-over 72 was just his second round of par or worse in his last 22. That dates back to the final round of the U.S. Open. So, it's a relief to know that it was just another blip. Today at TPC Boston, he split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation. His notable conversion, if not the shot of the day, occurred at the par-4 15th hole. After striping his drive 283 yards into the fairway, Furyk holed out from 146 yards for eagle. He added another eagle at the par-5 third, this time conventionally, pouring in a putt from 53'2". He also circled three birdies, the longest falling from 16'10" at the par-5 seventh. Furyk walked off lurking just four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Aug 30 - 2:46 PM

Jim Furyk posted a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of The Barclays to settle into an eight-place finish at 10-under 274.

Furyk has developed the reputation in recent years of being unable to convert 54-hole leads, and Sunday was no different. Three of his five birdies were erased by bogeys on the very next hole, which is the evil twin of the bounce-back birdie. The highlights were early and included a 14'8" birdie at the par-3 second hole and a 16'8" birdie at the par-4 sixth. He drops from fifth to sixth in the FedExCup standings, but is a virtual lock to compete in all four legs of the FEC Playoffs.
Aug 24 - 6:23 PM

Jim Furyk plodded for a bogey-free 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of The Barclays to join Jason Day in the 54-hole lead at 9-under 204.

Furyk played his typical brand of boring golf, securing 16 pars and picking up a pair of birdies. The first birdie dropped from 11'2" on the par-5 13th, with the second falling from 3'1" on the par-4 16th. The Ryder Cupper split 11 of 14 fairways and found 12 GIR, but lost a little ground with his flat stick. He will try and secure his first win since the 2010 TOUR Championship in Sunday's final round.
Aug 23 - 5:34 PM

Jim Furyk added a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in his second round of The Barclays to reach 7-under 135 at the halfway point, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He's on an incredible stretch at one of the most challenging times of the season. Dating back to his closing 67 at the U.S. Open, today's is Furyk's 18th round under par in his last 19. That stretch includes red numbers in all four at The Open Championship, RBC Canadian Open and WGC-Bridgestone. The only exception was a third-round 72 at Valhalla two weeks ago. Today at Ridgewood, he split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to four birdies against two bogeys. Two of his birdies ranged 10-14 feet. Both of his bogeys were three-putts.
Aug 22 - 1:17 PM

Jim Furyk fashioned a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of The Barclays, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

Furyk was the seventh to touch 66 and co-lead. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens, and swallowed only one bogey. Elsewhere, he drilled home six birdies -- three on each side -- including rolls from 16'6" at the par-3 15th hole and 15'10" at the par-5 17th. Furyk arrived in New Jersey seeded fifth. He's finished outside the top 20 just once in his last 13 starts, a stretch that includes seven top 10s, three of which were solo seconds.
