Furyk up one on Steve Stricker

Jim Furyk kept his fifty nine behind with a round which was ten shots higher in BMW Championship. An opportunity to win was all that mattered that made Saturday a huge success. Jim recovered from a slow beginning with 3 birdies in a 5 hole stretch across the turn. A 3 putt bogey from thirty feet on the par five 18th pushed him to settle for a two under sixty nine and a 1 shot lead over German golfer Steve Stricker.

Jim Furyk told that the target was to go out and shoot a good number, give him a spot to win this golf event. It could have been better out there. He dropped that shot at 18 he was disappointed for that. Probably, it was one of the easier holes of the day. But he got himself in good spot, so rather than dwell on the final hole, he would probably tend to want to think about tomorrow and what he have to do to try to win a golf event.

It was a different ending from Friday, when Jim Furyk shoot a wedge to three feet for birdie on the final hole (number nine) for a twelve under fifty nine, becoming just the 6th golf player in the history of the PGA Tour to score the magic number of the game.

None anticipated another round such as that from Jim, even though Matt Kuchar had a sixty one early in the day when conditions were favorable – with fast greens, firm fairways and increasing wind. 3 other golfers who had fifty nine in an earlier round came after with anything better than 68, but Jim did quite enough to offer himself a scope to end 3 years without a win.
