Shoulder injury makes Furyk’s season worse
Jim Furyk has gone from struggling with his game to struggling with his health.
Furyk hasn’t cracked the top 20 since he was appointed Ryder Cup captain, and at No. 156 in the FedEx Cup, he’s in danger of missing the playoffs and finishing out of the top 125 for the first time in his career.
He revealed Wednesday that he has soreness in the muscles around his shoulder.
“I really haven’t said much about it and kept quiet, but the more I keep playing, the more I’m struggling,” Furyk said. “And actually, I’ve been in a little bit of pain here the last two to three weeks.”
Furyk was not eligible for the British Open — the first time since 1995 he didn’t qualify for a major.
He had a cortisone shot last week to get ready for his 23rd consecutive PGA Championship.
