Jim Furyk

America’s captain at last September’s Ryder Cup in France has made it back into The Open after a climb back into the world top 50 thanks mainly to his runner-up finish at this March’s Players Championship in Florida, where he finished a single stroke behind Rory McIlroy.

America’s captain at last September’s Ryder Cup in France has made it back into The Open after a climb back into the world top 50 thanks mainly to his runner-up finish at this March’s Players Championship in Florida, where he finished a single stroke behind Rory McIlroy.

Became the first player in PGA Tour history to shoot a round of 58 at the 2016 Travelers Championship. Already one of only six men to have had a 59 to his name, Furyk recorded 10 birdies and an eagle, after which he joked: "I've got like 300 pictures at home with 59 on them. Gotta throw all that crap away now.”

Four fourth place finishes at The Open are among 23 top 10s in majors, his one victory coming at the 2003 US Open. Has three times been a runner-up in the same event since then, most recently Oakmont in 2016, and also came second place at the 2013 PGA Championship.

Second to Tiger Woods on the world rankings for a spell, he played in nine Ryder Cups and seven Presidents Cups. Victory at the 2010 Tour Championship also landed him the $10million bonus for winning the FedEx Cup play-off series.
