About Jim Furyk
Jim Furyk took his homegrown golf talent to play at the University of Arizona in Tuscon, where he was an All-American twice. He also led the Wildcats to their first (and thus far only) NCAA title in 1992. That same year, Furyk turned professional and the rest, as they say, is history. He joined the PGA TOUR in 1994 and has won at least one tournament each year between 1998 and 2003.
His streak took a little bit of a hit in 2004 when Furyk missed three months due to surgery to repair cartilage damage in his wrist. He soon came back into top form finishing a career-high second on the money list in 2006. Furyk truly hit his stride in 2010, winning a career-best three tournaments on the PGA TOUR that year. The most notable victory was the season-ending Tour Championship. That victory earned him the 2010 FedEx Cup. His stellar performance in 2010 won him both the PGA Player of the Year and PGA TOUR Player of the year.
