Jim Furyk wins the Western Open
Furyk won by two shots today over Tiger Woods and Ben Curtis. I remember when Jim Furyk first came on the tour over 10 years ago. He didn't make a big spectacular splash back then. Mostly they talked about his unusual swing. And today when you think of him, you don't really think of him being a 10 time winner on Tour. He is very unassuming and doesn't really attract the star image of a Garcia or a Woods. But Furyk is an excellent Champion and epitomizes what the PGA Tour should be about. Quiet competence and success with humility.
