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.

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.

Jim Furyk will return from a wrist injury that has kept him sidelined since September, making his first stop at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Furyk is building a roadmap to recovery and it starts with back-to-back events as he'll tee it up at THE PLAYERS next week, as well. Quail Hollow Club is a tough venue to make a comeback, as it stretches out past 7,500 yards and requires precision with the long irons. Furyk has won on this course, but he needed 8.74 strokes gained with the putter the week of his win. The PGA TOUR veteran has been very cautious with this injury but we can't rule out a bit of rust that comes from not playing tournament golf and not playing four consecutive days worth. The wait-and-see approach is a good one to take this week before a possible investment at THE PLAYERS.

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.

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.
