A future date for Furyk


CHASKA, Minn. – Jim Furyk didn’t take home the Wanamaker Trophy Sunday at the PGA Championship, but he won a consolation prize.

Furyk, one of 10 players to earn Presidents Cup spots on the United States team, played Sunday with American captain Fred Couples.

During the round, he helped Couples make at least one team pairing for the matches against the Internationals Oct. 8-11.

“I think Jim’s partner is already picked,” Couples said. “He’ll probably be with Tiger [Woods], and they’ll do really well, and they’ll have a good time. I think he likes that.”

Woods and Furyk were 1-1 as partners at the last Presidents Cup and 2-2 at the 2006 Ryder Cup with Furyk becoming the answer to an American problem with so many players failing under the pressure of being partnered with Woods.
