Jim Furyk made seven birdies through 10 holes at East Lake to help put himself in the lead at the Tour Championship on Friday. Furyk ended up with a 6-under 64 and leads by one shot over Justin Rose heading into the weekend.
For all the 3's Furyk put on his card, you couldn't help notice that he was a bit irriated about not making another 3 on the par-3 18th. He missed a 5-footer and wasn't too happy when he entered the scoring trailer to sign his card.
Furyk is the only American on the Ryder Cup Team without a win this year. He is hoping to change that especially after squandering chances for wins at the U.S. Open and Firestone.
Rose, who shared the 18-hole lead with Tiger Woods, made four birdies on the back nine and holed a 6-foot birdie putt on the 18th for a 68.
Woods went the other direction.
He was right in the mix when he made the turn, despite a double bogey on the eighth hole, But a series of bad swings that put him in bad positions led to four bogeys on the back nine, and Woods had a 73. It was his worst score at East Lake in 14 years, dating to a 76 in the second round in 1998. He was six strokes behind.
