"O Canada" Furyk Wins Again, Beats Lefty in World

Jim Furyk found his second victory of the 2006 PGA Tour season after shooting a 65 to edge by Bart Bryant. Furyk received the Canadian Maple Lead encrusted trophy surrounded by two Mounties en route to moving into the world's second ranked postition. Furky has perhaps edged past former world number two, Phil Mickelson as the "most likely to present some sort of threat to Tiger Woods". Bart Bryant was unable to make a long birdie putt on 18 to force a playoff with Furyk, so Furyk was able to quit trying to stay warm on the range and accept his prize. Noone else was able to make any type of charge to match Furyk's Sunday 65 as Jonathan Byrd, a third round leader, shot an even par 70, Sean O'Hair a 68, and Justin Rose a 74. The young Englishmen Rose has been in contention or leading in both the Deutsche Bank and the Canadian Open and has not been able to put together a decent final round. Rose has three international victories, none of which have came on the PGA Tour. The Tour will move to Farmington, PA for the 84 Lu,mber Classic. The final installment of the 84 Lumber Classic will feature Michelle Wie and Vijay Singh at Mystic Rock.
