6/20/2016: Jim Furyk finished in tie for 2nd at US Open. He had the low round of the final day. The amazing statistic is that Dustin Johnson, the eventual winner, out drove Jim by an average of 55 yards. On many of holes Johnson used the less powerful driving iron. Every golfer knows what an advantage distance can be by shorten the 2nd shot into the green. However, in spite of Jim Furyk’s relative lack of distance off the tee, considered critical in this day and age, he compensated by a complete golf game; solid golf shots and great short game. This is not to mention Jim is a fearce competitor and loves being “in the fire”.
