Jim Furyk Fires 27 on Front Nine at Travelers

August 7, 2016

PGA Tour veteran Jim Furyk is on a tear in the final round of the Travelers Championship.

Starting his round mired at one over par, Furyk proceeded to make six birdies and an eagle through his first nine holes, then followed that with birdies at the 10th and 11th holes to reach nine under for the tournament. The birdie at 11 was Furyk’s sixth in a row. His only pars came at the 1st and 5th holes.

Given that TPC River Highlands has a par of 70, Furyk only needs to go one under over his final seven holes to shoot 59. Only six players have shot 59 on the PGA Tour, and, unbelievably, Furyk is one of those six golfers, having joined the club with a 59 in the second round of the 2013 BMW Championship.
