Jim Furyk returns to Congressional Country Club for the first time since 2013 as he looks to push from his runner-up finish last week at the US Open.
The 46-year-old enjoyed a fruitful 2015 that included six top-10 finishes as well as a playoff victory at the RBC Heritage after shooting a final-round 63. This year has been a different story for the world number 19, who has only played in five events.
His US Open performance was his first top-10 showing of the season and came out of the blue. The Ponte Vedra Beach resident had missed two cuts and finished outside the top-30 in his two starts prior to Oakmont Country Club. His showing at the second major was a repeat of 2007 when the US Open was last held there, suggesting he plays well on courses he is familiar with.
His record at the Quicken Loans National when held at Congressional Country Club is a good one, having recorded three consecutive top-10 finishes in the first three editions from 2007 to 2009. The Pennsylvania-born golfer finished well in 2007 and 2008 to secure third-place finishes in both years before he took a crack at the title in 2009, but unfortunately stumbled to a final round 72 to finish seven shots behind eventual winner Tiger Woods.
Furyk missed the cut at Congressional Country Club when it hosted the 2011 US Open and his last showing there was a disappointing tie for 44th, which he will hope to improve this time around.
Furyk will look for a good performance this week when he tees off alongside Davis Love III and Keegan Bradley from Thursday.
