RBC Heritage: Jim Furyk wins first title since 2010

jim-furykOn his final day at the RBC Heritage, Jim Furyk finally did it!

If one thing is out of the question it’s that he had one of his best ball striking days in his career.

For the first time since 2010 he could end the long wait for his 17th PGA Tour title.

Due to adverse weather forecast he started much earlier than scheduled. Without a sweat e managed nine birdies in a closing 63 and then edged out a Kevin Kisner at the second play-off hole.

Furyk picked up early shots at the second and fourth quickly climbing up the leaderboard with four consecutive birdies from the sixth to close out a front-nine 30.

He almost managed to chip in another but it took him a minute to get back on track with three birdies in the next four where he opened up a three shot lead over anyone else.

Kisner was still able to reduce the lead to one but Furyk parred safely in and took over the clubhouse lead on the 18th.

This was definitely a brilliant day for Jim!
