It has been 30 months since Jim Furyk won the last of his 13 PGA victories, way back in 2007. His last victory was during the Canadian Open, which he won for the second consecutive year. As to when does he plan to win on the PGA again is a question that Furyk is used to facing.
“Every time I’ve been to the media room, whether it’s for pre-tournament (interview), whether it’s for playing pretty well and coming close, it’s something we talk about,” Furyk said after winning the unofficial World Chevron World Challenge in December.
Since winning his last title Furyk has been at 0-for-54, the longest drought in his career. Furyk has won the 2008 Grand Slam of Golf, but it seems a PGA victory is mostly what fans and reporters are concerned about.
“You know, until I win (again) on the PGA Tour, it’s going to keep coming up,” the Pennsylvania native remarked. He has not been wanting in opportunities to win. Since his last major official win he has finished second three times and third three times in other events but has never been lucky enough to hit that winning shot.
His recent performance at the Chevron World Challenge could be a sign that better times are coming, although it is not clear if the drought is about to come to an end. Furyk took advantage of Tiger Woods’ absence to hole a 40-foot putt for par on the 17th hole to remain tied for the lead before clinching the win with a six-footer for birdie on the final hole, defeating Lee Westwood by one stroke.
