Career

Furyk turned professional in 1992. He won the Nike Mississippi Gulf Coast Classic on the Nike Tour in 1993. He then joined the PGA Tour in 1994 and won at least one tournament each year between 1998 and 2003. At the time, this was the second-best streak of winning seasons behind Tiger Woods.

His biggest win during this period of time was in 2003 when he tied the record for the lowest 72-hole score in U.S. Open history to win his first major championship.

In 2004, he only played 14 events as he has suffered a wrist injury that required surgery to repair cartilage damage in his wrist. During that year, he fell out of the top hundred on the money list and his highest finish in any event was in the top six. However, he returned to good form in 2005 and regained his top ten ranking. He won a PGA Tour event that year and then had two more wins in the 2006 season. In 2006, he finished a career-high second on the money list and won the Vardon Trophy for the first time.

His victory in the Tour Championship also earned him the 2010 FedEx Cup after winning by one stroke.
