Jim Furyk

Jim Furyk became pro in 1992 and won the NIKE Mississippi Gulf Coast Classic on the Nike Tour in 1993. Joining the PGA Tour in 1994, he won at least one tournament each year between 1998 and 2003.  During this time he had the second-best streak of winning seasons behind Tiger Woods and entered the top ten in the Official World Golf Ranking.

His biggest win till date came on 2003 in US open when he tied the record for the lowest 72-hole score to win his first major championship.  In 2004, he participated only in fourteen events after missing three months due to surgery to repair cartilage damage in his wrist. He returned to good form in 2005 and regained his top ten ranking, winning a PGA Tour event in that year and two in 2006. In the 2006 season, he finished a career-high second on the money list and won the Vardon Trophy for the first time. He also had a career-best thirteen top-10 finishes, including nine top-3s, four second-place finishes, and two victories.

The 2010 season was his best as Jim Furyk won three tournaments winning at The Transitions Championship, the Verizon Heritage, and the season-ending Tour Championship. His accomplishments in 2010 won him both the PGA Player of the Year and PGA Tour Player of the Year for the first time.

Since 2012, Jim Furyk came close on several occasions to win more titles, but to date has not done so.  Furyk led after the first three rounds and looked set to win the championship as he held a one-stroke lead going into the final hole, but a double-bogey cost him the title to Keegan Bradley at the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.  Again at the 2013 PGA Championship, Furyk led by one stroke going into the final day over Jason Dufner, but this time his lead was overturned on the front nine and he was unable to reduce the deficit as Dufner won by two strokes.

Furyk At The Canadian Open With Run Of Extension

Jim Furyk ranked fourth when it comes to the list of money. He is garnered of sympathy from his friends. He plays deep on weekends. At the Canadian Open he had a lead shot of three but it got all blowed up due to stalling of with par of string.

Clark had the opportunity to blow him in the lane which was fast. It is three win for Furyk this season. He has put in some charges which are ferocious and aggressive. He had a fairly well off season. He was rifling the balls of golf at the Canadian Open. The win was full of tenacity and technicality. He also did not give up his vintage style class.

Despite missing so many chances he did start to win the points. Currently he is not being able to convert the finishes and sadly everything has turned against him. As far as the Ryder Cup is concerned he can easily make it up for that too.

He has always risen to the occasion without getting his performance gets strained. It is the question of the extra gear which he does not have with him. The zeal to win it from any situation also lacks. He was pretty unsuccessful in some of the tours of the early championship but he could luckily turn it around in his favour.

Defense play is what the golfers can strive for. For a golfer you have to be a pro to win it my margin and take the extra lead along into the next game which gives an upper hand momentum. Even if a person who misses out on glory ahs the chance to turn the game around in his favour in the next season since there is always a next time.

Steady Performance By Jim Furyk

Furyk did carve out a long endurance for the place of 12th in the US Open. In the round 1 at Valhalla he had a score of 5 below 66. On a bright day Furyk started the course with Charl Schwartzel and Miguel Angel Jimenez. Finishing with 1 on the side and par of the birdie 3 with 14th his record read.

The feeling to be in the championship of the major is exquisite. He believes that he is in a good position to take the lead from there. In the British Open his course began with fourth place. He settled for the Royal Montreal and then his position was tied at 15th in the last week.

Last year he finished second only to Duffner. His preparation before going in the tournament is seemingly confident and he is trying his best to be successful at the turf. He is feeling fresh both physically and mentally about his body and spirit. He just has to be confident to win it from there. When he had a month off he did not play much golf so he is unsure of the practise and training.

He did play for little and he also seemed sound mechanically as he was hitting the ball with consideration at the Canadian and British Open. Playing golf is like music for him. He started the week with 8th placing. In the 8 events he has completed fourth. He also finished the runner up position back to back.

Furyk made it evident that he wants his body and mind to be fully equipped with peace and tranquillity along with good fortune working in his favour among the rest of the golfers. He did miss a season of the month which was new. It took him time to return.

Ex-Woods caddie regrets interview

The former caddie of American golfer Tiger Woods has admitted that the biggest regret he has is his television interview on the green of the 18th after Adam Scott clinched the title at Firestone.

Scott, who won the Bridgestone International title in 2011 but Steve Williams was the one who stole the limelight with his interview. Williams had spent over twelve years in the service of Tiger Woods before he was sacked unceremoniously a month before the event and during the event, he stated that he had been caddying for 33 years and had 145 wins under his belt but that win for Scott was the most special he has ever had.

And in a recent interview, Williams stated that that interview was a mistake.

He mentioned that it never happens for a caddie. He admitted that he was pretty excited at that time and had gone through an extremely difficult twelve months previously with the fall out with Woods. He never expected someone to put a microphone in front of him while walking off the greens on the 18th and it was an outburst of emotion.

Woods had been caddying for Woods since before the turn of the century, looking over a whopping 72 wins all over the world, including 13 major titles as well as 16 Golf World Championships.

And it also showed the deep resentment he felt for his former employer at that time.

But now, he mentioned that when he thinks about that period, he feels that he shouldn’t have said some of the things that he did, especially after the long history the two have shared together. And he has repeatedly talked to Woods about the situation as well as comments made a few weeks after that incident and he also apologized for that as well.

Australian Open Triumph

After a frustrating dry 2013, Rory Mcllory is a happy golfer now. The former World # 1 a year back post a magnificent World Championship win at Dubai fell down to # 6 given a completely drought  2013 season which Rory hopes somehow has been managed by his recent victory at Australian Open this December.

The Irish pro, who was plagued with troubles both on & off the field, could hardly believe his good luck when he swung on to emerge as the new Australian Open champion defeating World # 2 Adam Scott a few days back. Scott was definitely aiming to come at par with Robert Allenby’s triple Australian crowns in one season (2005 Australian Masters, Australian PGA & Australian Open)- albeit he managed to win over PGA & the Masters yet Rory’s heroic feat shattered his dreams of tying up the record with Allenby.

The Australian Open crown this year was the sole title for Rory in 2013 which came a year after his Dubai World Championship win in 2012. The Irish golfer is viewing his recent win as a light at the far end of the dark tunnel that was evident from a dry  no-win 2013 season.

I am really pleased now but since the month of September I was just feeling a better state mentally with a few aspects off the field”, stated Rory.

The Irish golfer changed management agency this year that now involves his dad Gerry and is hopeful for better results in the coming year with his 6th stand finish at China WGC-HSBC event & 5th place in Dubai World Tour Championship.

“It was quite a frustrating year”, Rory admitted while expressing his experience about the 2013 season. “I have worked quite hard to triumph at the golf tournaments & it feels really great to have the win today.”
