Jim Furyk Wins the FedExCup
By mustang6560 on 9/27/10
Remember about a month ago when Jim Furyk was disqualified from the first round of the PGA Playoffs because his alarm didn't go off and he missed his tee time? Me either...

Jim Furyk won in dramatic style Sunday at East Lake scrambling from the sand to save par to win THE TOUR Championship and the $10 million for winning the FedExCup.
Clinging to a one-shot lead, in a bunker so deep he could only see the top of the lip, Furyk hit a clean shot and watched it head for the flag. It landed inches from the cup and spun to a stop 2½ feet away for an easy par and a one-shot victory over Luke Donald.

He put his name on a trophy with Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh. He finally won the Tour Championship, giving him three victories in a season for the first time in his career. He stated a strong case -- three victories and FedExCup champion -- as PGA Tour player of the year.
With a tap-in putt for par, Furyk drained the most lucrative putt in his life, grabbed his ball and turned to the crowd and pumping his fists at the crowd displayed some un-Jim Furyk like emotion. When asked about it later, he said "It just hit me. I was excited and dropped the putter and ... I don't know. I guess at that moment, you're not really responsible for what happens next."

SkyCaddie would like to congratulate Jim Furyk for winning his career-best third PGA TOUR event of the season and capturing his first (of hopefully many) FedExCup trophy. Good luck to Furyk and Team USA in Wales this weekend at the Ryder Cup!
