Jim Furyk finishes T4 in U.S. Open

Jim Furyk fell short in his quest to win his second major championship at the U.S. Open at The Olympic Club yesterday. Following his 4-over-par 74 in the final round, he expressed his disappointment to the media.
I don't know how to put that one into words, but I had my opportunities and my chances and it was right there. It was, on that back nine, it was my tournament to win and I felt like if win the out there and shot even par, 1‑under, I would have distanced myself from the field and I wasn't able to do so. And I played quite well, actually until the last three holes. So we'll have to look at holes 70 to 72 of what cost me the tournament. I needed to play those last three better.
The 2003 U.S. Open winner was the co-leader through 54 holes and led for most of the final round until he hit an errant tee shot at the par-5 16th. The poor tee shot led to a bogey, which dropped him to 2-over for the tournament and one stroke behind the eventual winner Webb Simpson.

Jim, who is a SkyCaddie advisory team member, finished the tournament in a tie for fourth place along with David Toms, Padraig Harrington, John Peterson, and Jason Dufner. His T4 finish earned him a cool $276,841 and marks his fourth top 10 of the 2012 PGA Tour season and his ninth top 25.
