Jim Furyk let another winning chance slip through his fingers as a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational left him in tied third on 7-under 273.
That's the 11th straight time Furyk has been leader/co-leader going into the final round of a PGA TOUR event and failed to post victory so, unfortunately, this didn't come as a surprise. Tied at the top with Justin Rose after Saturday's 69, Furyk took sole possession of the outright lead with a birdie at No. 2 but squared bogeys at 5 and 8. The veteran holed from 4'5" for a birdie at 11 to balance the books but dropped another shot at 12 after a loose drive and didn't give himself enough realistic looks after that. A concluding bogey left him four shots behind winner Shane Lowry. Furyk found just 5 (of 14) fairways in his final round and couldn't save himself via short game after going just 3-for-7 in scrambling. Aug 9 - 6:55 PM

Overnight leader Jim Furyk tacked on a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and co-leads with Justin Rose at 9-under 201 after 54 holes.

Furyk grinded today, but he's pretty good at that. He hit 12 greens in regulation and rolled in three birdies, including conversions from 11'8" and 17'11" at the par-4 eighth and 11th holes, respectively. However, he three-jacked the green from 65 feet for bogey at the par-3 seventh and recorded notable par saves to bracket the trot around Firestone. Furyk opened by salvaging a 4 from 19'9" at the first hole. He'd walk off with a four-yarder from the fringe for a 4 at the par-4 18th. He'll enter the final round with a chance at his second title this season (RBC Heritage). Furyk has won multiple tournament in the same season three times, but not since 2010.

Jim Furyk answered his opening 66 at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with another in today's second round to hang up 8-under 132 at the midpoint, five strokes lower than everyone else who has completed 36 holes.

There are three 18-hole course at Firestone Country Club, but we have to presume that Furyk is also on the South with everyone else. He hit 12 greens in regulation today and circled seven birdies, including conversions from 27'9" and 12'3" at the seventh and eighth holes, respectively. His most impressive par breaker, however, was as a result of a hole-out from the rough 19 yards away at the par-3 fifth. Sure, he dropped three shots with bogeys as well, but he can afford it. Furyk leads the field with 13 birdies at the break. At last check, he also sat first in strokes gained: tee-to-green with an aggregate clip of 9.770. Despite an illustrious career, the 45-year-old has never won a WGC, but he has nine top fives. This is his 45th start.

Jim Furyk authored a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio.

The two-time runner-up had the chance to tie Danny Lee for the day one lead but couldn't save par at 18 after fanning his second shot way short and right of the green. Nevertheless, it was a fine day's work for the veteran, who set the tone with a pair of opening birdies. Furyk tapped in for a third birdie at 5 after sticking his tee shot to 8" and rebounded from a bogey at 7 with another par breaker at 8. The 17-time PGA TOUR winner moved into a tie for the lead at 5-under by circling birdies at 11 and 15 before his late slip at the last. Furyk's driving accuracy stats were eye-popping as he split just 4 (of 14) fairways although most of his misses weren't too damaging as he managed to hit 11 greens in regulation.
Aug 6 - 6:41 PM

Jim Furyk authored a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude his 13th appearance in the tournament at 14-under 274, three strokes back of champion Jason Day.

Furyk began his final frame 11-under (T6) and three swings back of 54-hole leader David Hearn. He opened 3-under thru his first five holes with birdies at Nos. 1 (from 16'3"), 2 and 5 to pull within three of the Hearn's lead before squaring bogey at the par-4 sixth. That was about it for the 45-year-old, playing his last 12 holes in 1-under, circling just one more birdie at the par-5 13th, a two-putt from a little more than 21 feet. Furyk landed 12 greens in regulation, but his four birdies aside, he only had one other scoring opportunity from inside 10 feet, that coming from 7'11" at the par-4 11th, which he missed. He ended a near, five-year winless drought with his victory earlier this season at the RBC Heritage and was looking for the RBC double and his third RBC Canadian Open title to join his 2006 and 2007 crowns, but came up short.

Jim Furyk grinded to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open for a 54-hole total of 11-under 205 and a share of the clubhouse lead with Camilo Villegas.

The 2006 and 2007 Canadian Open champ (also runner-up in 2014) began the day at 7-under (T16) and seven shots adrift. After opening with 13 consecutive pars, Furyk circled birdies at Nos. 14, 16, 17 and 18 to vault up the leaderboard during the latter stages of play. The 45-year-old hit just 12 greens in regulation, but went 6-for-6 in scrambles, highlighted by a hole-out for par from a greenside bunker at the ninth. His shot of the day came on the second attempt to exit said bunker, after leaving his first attempt still in it. Furyk finally posted his first red number of the day with birdie from 27'11" at the par-4 14th, and added mid-range conversions on 16 (10'1") and 17 (15'2"). He had an eagle look at the 18th from just outside 14 feet, but settled for a two-putt birdie. The 17-time PGA TOUR winner is in position to add his second title of the season, having won the RBC Heritage back in April.

Jim Furyk goes face-to-face with The Old Course at St. Andrews during this week's The Open Championship.

Furyk arrives to make his first start since the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay. He will begin the week at a disadvantage with his lack of length on a course that is highly suited to bombers. In three trips to this venue, Furyk is just 1-for-3 with a T41 in 2000 as his top finish. Longtime gamers know his ability to hang around on any course, but this is a week where it's safe to look elsewhere first when setting rosters.

Jim Furyk closed out his 20th Memorial Tournament with a 1-under-par 36-35=71 and his four-day total of 12-under 276 was good for share of fifth place, three shots back of winner David Lingmerth.

Furyk had high hopes to add to his 2002 Memorial trophy case, starting championship Sunday in solo fourth and four shots back of 54-hole leader Justin Rose. He didn't get off to the start he envisioned, exchanging one birdie with one bogey to make the turn at even for the day. The 45-year-old circled two birdies on his inward half to cover his second bogey at the par-3 16th, but he didn't take advantage of either par 5 on the back side for the second consecutive round. Furyk generated plenty of scoring chances, hitting 13 greens in regulation, but converted on just three, his long of 32'4" on the par-4 17th came too little, too late. Still, he settled into a three-way tie for fifth, his fourth top 10 on the season.

Jim Furyk tacked on a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's third round of the Memorial with his 11-under 205 total positioning him four shots back of the 54-hole leader Justin Rose.

Furyk, 2002 Memorial champion and 2009 runner-up, began the day in a six-way tie for fifth at 9-under, three shots adrift of the 36-hole lead. On his round, he found 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation en route to a four birdie against two bogey plod around Muirfield Village. The 45-year-old was methodical, as he's been for most of his PGA TOUR career, with his most memorable birdie coming from 28'10" at the par-4 10th. His other three conversions each came from inside seven feet. Furyk is in contention for his second title of the season, having won the RBC Heritage in April. He'll be in the penultament pairing on Sunday with David Lingmerth, who was the overnight 36-hole leader.
Jun 6 - 6:40 PM

Jim Furyk is 9-under-par 69-66=135 through two rounds of the Memorial and sits just three swings in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Furyk won this tournament in 2002 and has an astonishing 14 top 25s in 19 appearances, so Muirfield Village has been a predictable source of income for the 45-year-old. He's traded 12 birdies with three bogeys thus far. Today's set of seven par breakers featured three from outside 13 feet. The highlight dropped from 28'1" at the par-4 sixth hole.
Jun 5 - 1:30 PM

Jim Furyk does battle at the Memorial for an 18th time and enters the week 24th in the FedExCup standings.

Furyk took the 'DFW-Double' off so we last saw him missing the cut at the Wells Fargo by four strokes on rounds of 72-76. A minor blip perhaps, but this followed a T56 at THE PLAYERS. The 45-year-old did ring up a fourth at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play with a 4-3 record, but lost his last two matches (Rory McIlroy in semis; Danny Willett in consolation match). All is forgiven however, considering he ended an almost five-year winless drought (2010 TOUR Championship) with victory at the RBC Heritage. Coincidentally, the last top 10 at Memorial was also in 2010 (T10). All told, Furyk is 16-for-17 at Muirfield Village with six top-10 finishes, including runner-up in 2009.

Jim Furyk reached the midpoint of THE PLAYERS in 4-under-par 70-70=140.

Not only are his scores identical, but the method in which he's crafted both follows the same philosophy. Furyk striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation in both rounds. His strokes gained: putting clip was negative in each as well, and he traded three birdies with one bogey in both. Fittingly, today's longest conversion was for par from just 10'3" at the par-4 15th hole. He lives locally but acknowledged early in the week that he played TPC Sawgrass just once since last year's solo second. Obviously, recent unfamiliarity hasn't mattered as he's just four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 8 - 3:24 PM

Jim Furyk eliminated Louis Oosthuizen 4-and-2 in the quarterfinals of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship and awaits the winner of the Rory McIlroy, Paul Casey match.

Furyk trailed 1-down over the span of five holes in the middle portion of the match but caught fire on the back nine with four birdies in seven holes to dispatch the South African with ease. After trailing 1-down early on, Oosthuizen moved to a 1-up lead with birdie on the fifth, and had his chances to increase the lead on Nos. 6, 8 and 9 but could never take advantage. Furyk seized the opportunity with birdie on 10 to get back to all square and after the duo exchanged pars on 11, Furyk took the lead for good with another birdie at the par-4 12th. A concession at 14 and two additional circles for Furyk at 15 and 16 ended it. This is Furyk's first time to reach the semifinals in 14 starts at the WGC-Match Play.
May 2 - 10:11 PM

Jim Furyk took down J.B. Holmes 5-and-3 in the round of 16 at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Furyk, the Group 5 winner from the round-robin stage, methodically ran over the long-hitting Holmes to advance to the quarterfinals and will face the No. 29 seed Louis Oosthuizen. The 44-year-old exchanged birdies with Holmes on the par-5 opener and a bogey-5 on No. 4 dropped him to 1-down in the early going. His deficit was short lived, as Holmes squared bogey on No. 6 to move the match back to all square. Furyk took his first lead of the match with a par-4 on the eighth and that remained the margin at the turn. Furyk then pounced on Holmes with back-to-back par breakers on 10 and 11 to quickly move to 3-up in the match and added his fourth birdie at the par-3 13th to extend his lead. Holmes' concession on the par-4 15th is how the match would end.
May 2 - 5:17 PM

Jim Furyk eliminated Martin Kaymer from the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship in 20 holes in today's third-round match.

Kaymer never led, but he closed out regulation birdie-birdie to extend. They matched birdies at the par-5 first hole the second time through, and then Furyk finally slammed the door with a birdie-2 at the second hole. Overall, the American played 20 holes in bogey-free 7-under. Kaymer scored 6-under with one bogey. Furyk (2-1) then waited for George Coetzee (2-1) to beat Thongchai Jaidee (1-2) before advancing to Saturday's round of 16. Furyk defeated the South African on Wednesday to earn the tiebreaker. Kaymer concluded his week at 1-2.
