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. Jun 7 - 8:00 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

With a 3-and-2 victory, Jim Furyk had little trouble is getting by George Coetzee in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Furyk is back in play after his emotional win at Harbour Town. He played rather taut golf today, but also faced an inconsistent foe. Going out in bogey-free 1-under-par, Furyk sat 2-up at the turn thanks in part to a concession at the par-4 sixth hole. He doubled the advantage by the par-3 13th, and then just coasted in. Despite bogeys at 14 and 15, Coetzee picked off a win on only the 14th, as he also bogeyed the latter. The match came to a close with pars at the par-4 16th, but the writing had been on the wall for some time by then. Furyk will turn around quickly now and meet Thongchai Jaidee in the first match of the second round. Immediately following, Coetzee will to toe-to-toe with Martin Kaymer.

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.
Apr 18 - 8:46 PM

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.
Apr 17 - 5:01 PM

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.
