So is his attitude.
Seven shots back at Sunday’s start, Furyk mounted a spirited charge at the Wells Fargo Championship, briefly taking a share of the lead before he ran out of holes.
A 7-under-par 65 left Furyk in second place, one shot behind winner J.B. Holmes.
Furyk won Wells Fargo in ’06, but he didn’t even play here a year ago. He said he needed an attitude adjustment.
“I didn't feel like my head was in a good place,” said Furyk, who makes his home in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. “I wasn't having a lot of fun playing, and I wasn't really enjoying the game at the time. I was treating it like a job, really, instead of having fun.
“I made up my mind to change my attitude, and the way I looked at it, because I wasn't having a good time, and I know that you're going to play better, or I'm going to play better, the more I go out like a kid. I started playing this game as a kid because it was a blast! So, I wanted to attack it that way, and enjoy myself out here, and I think that early last year my results weren't that good.”
“If you talk about my attitude then, and my attitude now, I think my results are a lot better, because I'm approaching the game from a better angle.”
Furyk's 65 Sunday was his best score in a PGA Tour event since shooting a 59 at the BMW Championship last September. It was his best finish since he placed second at the PGA Championship last August. It’s his third top-10 finish in his last four starts.
