Jim Furyk will have surgery on his left wrist and is expected to miss three months of action while he recovers.
Golf Channel's Will Gray reported via Twitter saying, "Jim Furyk's agency announces he will have surgery on injured left wrist and miss another 3 months." Much like the groundhog seeing his shadow, this announcement means gamers will have to wait a little longer to get what they want. Furyk pulled out of the TOUR Championship, Presidents Cup, and Hyundai Tournament of Champions due to this injury. There is no specific tournament mentioned for his targeted return, but we will keep you notified if that changes. Feb 1 - 12:41 PM

Jim Furyk won't make the trip to Hawaii for next week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions as he recovers from a bone contusion in his left wrist.

Furyk hoisted the trophy at the RBC Heritage last season to earn his spot in the field. The 17-time PGA TOUR winner made the trek to Maui each of the past 12 times he's qualified, so this is not status quo for the veteran. His last trip to Maui was in 2011 where he finished in a share of ninth place. Gamers should keep a close eye on the recovery of Furyk and let him ease back into form before reinvesting.

With his withdrawal from the Presidents Cup today, Jim Furyk may not play again for quite a while.

The bone contusion in his left wrist forced Furyk to yield his spot in the biennial competition, this time held in South Korea on Oct. 8-11. "There is nothing I take more pride in than representing the United States in The Presidents Cup and the Ryder Cup, and I am deeply disappointed that I will have to withdraw from playing because my wrist, although improving, is still not where it needs to be at this point," he said. The 45-year-old tends to disappear in the last quarter of the calendar year anyway, so it might have been a few months before he competed again even if he didn't automatically qualifying for the team.

Jim Furyk has withdrawn from this week's TOUR Championship due to lingering soreness in his left wrist.

Not a surprise and gamers are thankful for the early notice, particularly since Furyk's record at East Lake is so strong. As a result of his mid-tournament WD at Conway Famrs last week, he fell seven spots to 16th in the FedExCup standings. At this point, there's concern whether the 45-year-old will be able to compete in the Presidents Cup that begins on Oct. 8. Captain Jay Haas would be able to replace Furyk in advance of the competition, so it's likely that at least one golfer will be put on alert as a sub if he already hasn't been. In a statement, Furyk said, "While I am disappointed to miss this week’s event in Atlanta, I am now placing all my efforts on being healthy and ready to play in The Presidents Cup. (Captain) Jay Haas will be made aware of my progress in the coming days, as we see how the injury responds to the treatment."

Past FedExCup champ Jim Furyk is scheduled to tee it up in his eighth TOUR Championship this week in Atlanta and enters the tournament ranked 16th in the FedExCup standings.

A huge cloud hangs over Furyk following his first-round WD (left wrist injury) at last week's BMW after just six holes. Interviewed shortly thereafter, he described the pain as "sharp" but in a different area of the surgically-repaired wrist than in 2004. In a statement released on Friday by his management firm, "Jim is on a day-to-day basis." If this were the NFL, the 45-year-old would be listed as questionable (at best) and more likely a game-time decision. Not to question his resolve, but if he goes, the 2010 tournament winner and FEC champ will be one swing away from another early exit.

It was reported today that Jim Furyk is suffering from a bone contusion in his left wrist.

In a statement released by Andrew Whitlieb of his management firm, Furyk visited Dr. Andrew Weiland in New York after withdrawing from the BMW Championship on Thursday. Furyk had surgery on the wrist in 2004, but specified in his interview on Golf Channel after walking off Conway Farms that the discomfort he's feeling is in a different part of the wrist where the surgery was performed. Per the statement, "Jim is not going to hit ball until early next week and is on a day-to-day basis."

Jim Furyk withdrew from the BMW Championship during his opening round, citing an injury to his left wrist.

Sigh. Furyk started on the back side of Conway Farms Golf Club this morning and scored bogey-bogey-birdie before stringing together three pars. With six complete and sitting at 1-over-par, he called it quits. It's just his second mid-tournament WD in 541 PGA TOUR starts (1995 Western Open). Of course, Conway Farms is the site of his 59 in the second round of the 2013 edition of this tournament. He was on the short list for gamers of all formats. He entered the week slotted ninth in the FedExCup standings, so we'll need to monitor his status for next week's TOUR Championship closely as he's a former champion at East Lake. He was also a co-runner-up last year. UPDATE: Furyk went into detail about his injury and why he withdrew on Golf Channel. You can view the entire interview by clicking here.

Jim Furyk conjured up a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to wrap at 8-under 276, up seven places on the live leaderboard.

Furyk began the Monday finish at TPC Boston at 7-under (T11) and six back of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson. After opening in 71-65-70, he closed with today's four-birdie against three-bogey effort. At a glance, Furyk may have contended for his 18th career TOUR title if he had putted better finishing the week 63rd in strokes gained: putting at last check. He went a cumulative 10.540 in strokes gained: tee-to-green however, a lofty second in the field in that category at the time he signed his card. The 45-year-old's personal best in eight prior trips to Norton, Massachusetts, was solo sixth in 2011. He currently sits T4 on the leaderboard with play winding down for the day.

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.

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.

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.
