Jim Furyk will likely miss the Masters for just the second time in the last 20 years.
Furyk, who is still out after secondary wrist surgery from earlier this year, said he is expecting a May return as he continues rehab. If that’s the case, he’ll also miss the 2016 Masters. This all comes according to a report from Nate Palm of WJBF, the local ABC affiliate in Augusta, Georgia, who was attending the media day for the RBC Heritage Open on Monday. Furyk is the defending champion at the RBC.
This would be the first Masters Furyk would miss since 2004 and just the second major he’s missed since the 1995 British Open.
