With a birdie on the second playoff hole, Jim Furyk emerged with victory at the RBC Heritage.
This was Furyk's day, and it was a long time coming. He closed out the tournament with nine birdies en route to an-under-par 30-33=63 to post 18-under 266. Kevin Kisner would later match to force the playoff. After the duo traded birdies at the par-4 18th hole to open the playoff, Kisner missed his birdie try from about 20 feet at the par-3 17th. Furyk then converted from about 12 feet for birdie and the title. It's his second victory at Harbour Town (2010) and 17th on the PGA TOUR but first since the TOUR Championship later that season. He started the finale placed T5 and four shots back of the overnight lead. On the day, he striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation, requiring 26 putts. Furyk dropped only one shot with a three-putt bogey. Furyk's set included four birdies from outside 13 feet, culminating with a bomb from 48'2" at the par-4 eighth as he closed out his outward nine with four consecutive birdies. Apr 19 - 2:09 PM

Jim Furyk signed for a bogey-free 3-under-par 34-34=68 in his third round of the RBC Heritage to post 10-under 203.

Furyk will enter the final round in a three-way tie for fifth and four shots back of the 54-hole leader. On the day, he striped 13 (of 14) fairways but could total only 11 greens in regulation. The 44-year-old has registered only one bogey through 54 holes (14th hole, round two) and he didn't add to that tally today as the wily veteran went 7-for-7 in scrambling. The 2010 RBC champion had an early opportunity to set the tone for a low round, but missed a 5'8" eagle putt on the par-5 second settling for a disappointing two-putt birdie.

Jim Furyk proved that he can still break par and emphatically with a 7-under-par 31-33=64 in today's second round of the RBC Heritage.

This is his first red number in 11 rounds. Granted, Furyk has competed on difficult tracks of late, but to go that long with breaking par at any time is rare for him. It was his longest drought since 2011. After linking 18 pars on Thursday, Furyk opened birdie-birdie-birdie today. He went on to add five birdies to hide a bogey-4 at the 17th hole. He missed only two (of 14) fairways and three greens in regulation. Three of his birdies dropped in from outside 10 feet, the longest from 19'11" at the par-4 13th hole. He also converted a pair of zero-putt six-yarders early. At 7-under 135, the 44-year-old is five swings adrift of Troy Merritt's 36-hole lead.

Jim Furyk signed for a bogey-free, even-par 35-36=71 in today's opening round of the RBC Heritage.

That's right. Eighteen pars. What's more, Furyk logged the only bogey-free card of the day. He piped half of the 14 fairways and went 10-for-10 in scrambling. His greatest challenge to avert a square occurred at the par-4 13th hole where he poured in his putt from 15'11" after splashing his second into a greenside bunker. He's five shots off the pace of overnight co-leaders Matt Every and Graeme McDowell. If there's a downside to Furyk's score, it's that it extends his drought without a red number to 10 rounds.
Apr 16 - 7:30 PM

The 79th Masters will mark Jim Furyk's 19th appearance at Augusta National.

Furyk's career record at the Masters is enviable going 16-for-18 with a current streak of four straight top 25s and 12 overall. His solo fourths in 1998 and 2003 are among four top 10s with his last a T10 in 2009. On the season, he's 5-for-5 with three top 25s -- including a T7 at AT&T Pebble Beach -- but has struggled in his last two starts finishing T40 at the Valspar Championship and T58 at the Valero Texas Open. Wet conditions at ANGC will not mix well with his 275.5 yard average off the tee in 2015. At 44-years-old, the 2003 U.S. Open champion's quest for another major title (or any title) might be nearing an end as he's not won on the PGA TOUR since the 2010 Tour Championship.

Jim Furyk concluded the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship with a 3-under-par 36-33=69.

Furyk ends his week at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course at even-par 288. He circled four birdies to just one bogey in the finale. Three of those birdies fell from outside of 15 feet, with a 40'8" birdie at the par-3 15th taking the cake. Gamers should be licking their chops to plug him in the lineup for next week's Valspar Championship, where he is a past winner at the Copperhead Course as recently as 2010.

Jim Furyk recorded a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

Furyk placed T62 at Trump National Doral's debut as a redesigned test last year, failing to break 75 in every round. Today, he hit 13 greens in regulation and outbalanced two bogeys with four birdies. The set of par breakers included conventional conversions from 12'1" and 13 feet at the first and 16th holes, respectively, but Furyk also rolled in a zero-putt five-yarder from the fringe for birdie at 3. He's eight shots off the overnight lead.
Mar 5 - 6:02 PM

Jim Furyk signed for a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Northern Trust Open to complete 54 holes in 4-under 209.

Furyk gathered five birdies on his lap around Riviera Country Club, with all of them in the bag after 11 holes. His round was marred by two bogeys. The highlight came at the par-3 sixth hole, where he converted a 19'9" birdie opportunity. He was one off the clubhouse lead and five behind the lead still on the course at the time of his posting.

Overnight leader Jim Furyk blew up for a 2-over-par 38-36=74 in his final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and settled for a share of seventh place at 16-under 271.

Furyk went 3-for-6 in scrambling and added a three-jack bogey from 18'4" at the par-4 10th hole. He negotiated only two birdies and whiffed on four tries inside 10 feet. Even if all fell, it wouldn't have been enough to win as he checked up six swings adrift of champion Brandt Snedeker, but it's still another stinging failure to close out an opportunity to win even if it was his season debut and first meaningful action in five months. He'll make the quick trip to Riviera Country Club for this week's Northern Trust Open where he's cashed in the last six editions.
Feb 15 - 7:25 PM

Jim Furyk birdied half of the holes at Pebble Beach Golf Links in a bogey-free 9-under-par 33-30=63 to take the 54-hole lead in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am at 18-under 197.

Furyk circled three birdies on the front nine, which typically plays easier than the back. That wouldn't prove to be the case in his round, as he added six more birdies on the back. Eight of his birdies fell from inside of 10 feet, with the lone exception a 31-footer on the par-4 13th. It is well documented that Furyk hasn't won on the PGA TOUR since the TOUR Championship in 2010. He is one ahead of Matt Jones with 18 to play.
Feb 14 - 6:11 PM

Jim Furyk shook off the rust and shot a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-33=64 at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course in today's opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

He was supposed to compete in the Hero World Challenge in December, but bowed out with a sore back. There wasn't nothing wrong with today's experience in perfect conditions. Furyk missed only one of 13 fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to seven birdies. His recent history in this tournament is mediocre with no better than a T30 (2013) in the last six editions, but we can never rule him out when he commits to any event. He'll test his game at Spyglass Hill in the second round.
Feb 12 - 5:48 PM

Jim Furyk is slated to compete in next week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Furyk hasn't played anywhere of note since the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in mid-October. His last official start was the TOUR Championship, so he's quite rested. However, he was scheduled to play in the Hero World Challenge during the holiday break, but withdrew early due to a "tweaked back." Assuming he's fine, Furyk will be making 19th appearance at Pebble Beach and 11th consecutive. He's cashed 16 times.

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.
