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.

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.

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.

Jim Furyk amassed a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the PGA Championship and is the first to post 12-under 272.

Furyk picked up five birdies on his lap around Valhalla Golf Club, settling for par on his other 13 holes. In addition to a 15'9" birdie at the par-4 second hole, his round was highlighted by a chip-in birdie out of the rough from 28'9" on the par-4 16th. He split every fairway on the afternoon, landing 13 GIR. While he stands as the clubhouse lead, the battle on the course between Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson and Rory McIlroy is approaching the realm of epic. That said, Furyk stands little chance of hoisting his second major championship trophy.

Jim Furyk chased his opening 66 at the PGA Championship with a 3-under-par 32-36=68 to post 8-under 134 at the midpoint, one stroke adrift of the 36-hole lead.

Nothing seems to be deterring the 44-year-old from maintaining a high level of form right now. For bunters like Furyk, rain is usually the enemy. However, this isn't his first rodeo. He sandwiched two bogeys mid-round with five birdies to remain in contention. His set featured conversions from 10'7", 24'4" and 12'5" at the third, seventh and 17th holes.
Aug 8 - 8:25 PM

Jim Furyk spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 35-31=66 in his opening round of the 96th PGA Championship, finishing one stroke adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

He continues to roll Furyk tied for 15th at Firestone last week -- his worst finish in his last four events -- but he was under par in every round. Today's effort at Valhalla is an indication that his game remains in tiptop shape. He hit 14 greens in regulation and poured in five birdies, including three in a row to conclude his round. The last measured a round-long 36'5" at the par-4 ninth hole. Earlier, he also found the cup from 11'10" and 29'5" at Nos. 14 and 1, respectively. His nearest brush with bogey occurred at the par-5 18th where he rinsed his second, but ultimately swept a par save in from 18'11". At last check, Furyk's strokes gained-putting measured 2.925.

The third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational was suspended due to inclement weather at 12:43 p.m. ET. Update: The third round is scheduled to resume at 4 p.m.

This was always in the cards and the reason the tee times were bumped up to split-tee threesomes. Scattered thunderstorms are in the Akron, Ohio area, and will be for much of the afternoon. The good news is, the leaders are already through 15 holes, so it's highly likely that 54 holes will be in the books for all players at day's end. Jim Fuyrk was 1-under-par for his round and 4-under through 53 holes when the horn blew.

Jim Furyk owned Firestone Country Club's South Course in his second round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational after which he signed for a bogey-free, 2-under-par 33-35=68.

Furyk split all 14 fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation, so that he walked off with only two birdies was probably a bit bittersweet. However, he sunk all 17 looks inside 10 feet and converted a birdie from 19'8" at the par-4 14th. He reached the midpoint in 3-under 137, five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Aug 1 - 2:17 PM

Jim Furyk stumbled to a 1-under 34-35=69 to come up one short of Tim Clark at the RBC Canadian Open with a score of 16-under 264.

Furyk can't be faulted for finally recording a mediocre round this week but the timing doesn't bode well for his career record of converting leads. He is now just 4-for-24 when it comes to turning36-hole leads into victories. The cause for concern today was the regression with the flat stick as his 3.549 and 2.956 strokes gained-putting splits from Friday and Saturday, respectively, were unsustainable. On Sunday, that number declined drastically to -2.433 for the round. His runner-up finish today will be the third of his season and it's seemingly just a matter of time before he again hoists a trophy. However, he and gamers are left licking their wounds today.

Jim Furyk kept the pedal down with a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his third round of the RBC Canadian Open to secure overnight possession of the 54-hole lead.

Furyk has now gone 50 straight holes without a bogey at Royal Montreal. The only square on his scorecard remains around a 5 at fourth hole on Thursday. He could do no wrong today, as every time things looked to be slipping away he would recover from trouble. The key par save came at the par-4 11th where he overshot the green by 30 yards, only to skip a wedge to 14'1" that he ultimately sank. That was just one of his four putts on the day that were rolled in from outside of nine feet. Furyk currently sits three shots ahead of his nearest competitor, Tim Clark. Because of the threat of inclement weather on Sunday, golfers are scheduled to go out in threesomes off split tees beginning at 8:00 a.m. ET. The final group will begin at approximately 10:00 a.m.

Jim Furyk was nearly flawless en route to a bogey-free, 31-32=63 in his second round of the RBC Canadian Open.

He missed only two (of 14) fairways and one green in regulation at Royal Montreal today. He picked off seven birdies, all of which from outside 10 feet. The most notable measured 49'11", 19'4" and 20 feet at the 11th, 13th and first holes, respectively. He missed thrice from inside nine feet, thus capping his strokes gained-putting split at 3.165 at last check, but his consolation is early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 10-under 130. He hasn't won a PGA TOUR event since the 2010 TOUR Championship, but he rolled into Canada in red-hot form. Today's score equals the course record established in the second round of the 2001 edition of the tournament. Both Scott Verplank and David Morland IV turned in 63s that week. Verplank won by three strokes. Furyk's held up throughout the day, so he'll sleep on a share of the 36-hole lead.

Jim Furyk lit up Royal Liverpool for a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of The Open Championship to secure a fourth-place finish and a return trip to the Masters.

Furyk picked up an eagle on the par-5 fifth, nearly jarring it for an albatross, and then added five birdies on the back nine at Hoylake. His 13-under 275 was good for the clubhouse lead at the time, but he finished four strokes adrift of champion Rory McIlroy. The top four and ties at Royal Liverpool earned exemptions into the 2015 Masters. The others are McIlroy (winner), Rickie Fowler (T2) and Sergio Garcia (T2). This could prove to be a critical week for Furyk's Ryder Cup chances as he entered the week sixth in the standings with double points being awarded for majors.
Jul 20 - 12:57 PM

Jim Furyk settled for a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in the third round of The Open Championship and is inside the top 10 at 6-under 210.

Furyk was 3-under through 11 holes at Royal Liverpool and cruising towards contention when his round stalled. He would suffer his first bogey at the par-4 14th and follow that up with a second bogey on the par-4 17th. He had a chance to circle a birdie at the par-4 18th, but was unable to convert.
Jul 19 - 10:17 AM

Jim Furyk chased his opening 68 at The Open Championship with a 1-under-par 34-37=71 to post 5-under 139 at the halfway point.

He's one stroke adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders, but Furyk is likely to begin Saturday several more strokes behind the leader if Rory McIlroy continues to light up Royal Liverpool. Furyk split eight (of 14) fairways and only eight greens in regulation today, but he limited the damage to just two bogeys while picking off three birdies and reel in the red number.
