AUGUSTA, Ga. - He's the second-ranked player on the planet. Which, in this era, is about as high as anyone not named after an animal can really hope to aspire. Jim Furyk has won 12 times on the PGA Tour, including a U.S. Open in 2003. He has a funky swing, and that's being kind, but it works for him. He comes to the first major of the year as one of the favorites, even though he only has three top 10s in 10 Masters. At 36, he's nothing if not solid. Still, has any No. 2 ever flown this far under the radar?

ATLANTA - Rory McIlroy is No. 1 in the world, and Jim Furyk says that makes him a marked man at the Ryder Cup. McIlroy has won three of his last four tournaments, starting with a record 8-shot win in the PGA Championship for his second major. He is the favorite again this week at the Tour Championship, where he is the top seed in the chase for the $10 million FedEx Cup bonus. The Ryder Cup is next week at Medinah, and while McIlroy is one of 12 players for Europe, he has set himself apart.

Jim Furyk realizes that people wonder about the strength of his surgically repaired left wrist, since he hasn't won a PGA Tour event in almost two years. But that doesn't bother him. He has played so well recently, with three top-10 finishes in the last five weeks, that it seems to be more a question of when he's going to win again, not if. "A lot of different things have to happen to win golf tournaments," Furyk said yesterday at Hartefeld National Golf Club in Avondale, where he competed in his Exelon Invitational skins game with Retief Goosen, Mike Weir and Tim Clark.

The lucrative world of outings and exhibitions for PGA Tour players is one that Jim Furyk used to see from only one side, the side that usually asked sponsors "What's your hurry?" "Players aren't planning six months ahead," Furyk said last week. "You call someone in January and they say, 'June 1? Call me in a few months and I'll have a better idea.' Then on April 1, you call them again and they say, 'Well, uh, I don't know . . . well, yeah.' "As a player, I was always like, 'Give me a month or so.' Now I'm on the other side of it saying, 'Hurry up.' You've got to keep pushing the envelope.

In August, the PGA Championship pairs the winners of the first three majors for the first 2 days. In 2006, it was Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Geoff Ogilvy. The USGA has decided to group the three top-ranked players in the world tomorrow and Friday. Woods, Mickelson and Adam Scott will tee off at No. 10 at 8 tomorrow and go off in the afternoon in the second round. Two years ago, in the PGA, Phil opened with a birdie, Tiger a bogey. They both shot 69, as did Ogilvy. Tiger then went 68-65-68, to get the trophy.

AKRON, Ohio - Jim Furyk spent more time looking at the forecast than the leader board Saturday in the Bridgestone Invitational. He's not sure which one looks more favorable. Furyk missed a couple of birdie chances early in the third round, and then was more than happy to settle for pars on a Firestone course that was firm, fast, bouncy, and increasingly difficult. He made 16 pars, along with one birdie on the front nine and one bogey on the back nine, for an even-par 70 that felt like a hard day of work.

AKRON, Ohio - Jim Furyk made a detour to Florida to sit on his back porch and hang out with his kids as he tried to figure out why decent golf was producing ordinary scores. The short break appeared to do him a world of good Thursday in the Bridgestone Invitational. With seven birdies and a 30-foot eagle putt, Furyk had a 7-under 63 for his best score ever at Firestone and a 2-shot lead over Lee Slattery of England. The conditions could not have been more ideal with sunshine, heat, and very little wind, along with carpet for fairways and smooth greens.

ATLANTA - Jim Furyk, the only American on the Ryder Cup team without a win this year, put himself in position Friday to join them. Furyk made seven birdies through 10 holes at East Lake - including seven 3s to start the round - until he missed a few greens on the back nine that slowed his momentum. He wound up with a 6-under 64, giving him a 1-shot lead over Justin Rose going into the weekend at the Tour Championship. His 7-under 133 gives him an outside shot at the FedEx Cup title and its $10 million bonus.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - The various peaks and valleys of the terrain of Oak Hill Country Club were almost a metaphor for Tiger Wood's first round at the PGA Championship yesterday. There were plenty of ups, and there were plenty of downs, all culminating in a disappointing opening round of 1-over-par 71. On one hand, Woods is within a stone's throw of the leaders, Jim Furyk and Adam Scott, who sit at 5-under. On the other hand, Woods could have been much closer to that lead if not for only two holes that did him in. On the fourth hole, an attackable par-5, his drive landed in the right rough.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - At about 5 p.m. yesterday, leaders Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth stood on the ninth green. About 75 yards away, Bernhard Langer, the standard-bearer for the AARP delegation, was explaining why a record six 50-somethings not only made the Masters cut but half of them spent yesterday in contention. On the ninth green, Watson made a birdie putt that completed a four-shot swing atop the leader board over two holes and had the Masters caretakers heading to his locker to get out the green jacket he won 2 years before.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - So what did we learn from another season of golf's four most defining weeks, other than the fact that no 54-hole leader was able to get it done on Sunday? Well, if Jim Furyk had held on to win the PGA Championship at Oak Hill - instead, Jason Dufner held the Wanamaker Trophy as yet another in a growing list of first-time major winners - we would have had a 5-month run that gave us a pair of 32-year-old champions in Adam Scott and Justin Rose followed by two 40-somethings.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Jim Furyk has experienced his share of disappointments since his only major victory at the 2003 U.S. Open. And even though he came up short once again Sunday at the PGA Championship, Furyk rather enjoyed himself at Oak Hill Country Club. "I had an absolute blast," Furyk said after posting his fourth runner-up finish in a major, winding up 2 strokes behind champion Jason Dufner. Furyk, 43, a former West Chester and Lancaster resident, finished in the top 10 in a major for the 20th time.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Jim Furyk had been in the position before. When he came into his final round at Oak Hill, he was leading a major championship after 54 holes, much like last year's U.S. Open at the Olympic Club. Unlike last year at Olympic when he fell two shots short of Webb Simpson, he did not beat himself, Jason Dufner beat him. "With the lead, it was a good, solid round, but got beat by a guy that played better today," Furyk said. "Today, I feel like I got beat. I didn't beat myself, I don't think.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Despite having compiled an excellent career on the PGA Tour, Jim Furyk knows he has to answer questions from time to time about why he's never won more than one major championship, a title that came 10 years ago. This past week at the PGA Championship, the former West Chester and Lancaster resident chided the media for bringing up some of his past failures in majors, telling them: "No wonder you guys are on that side, you have...

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Remember when Adam Scott didn't threaten much at a major? Hey, at least Greg Norman kept putting himself in position enough to have it all go wrong in the end. Well, at 33, the fellow Australian has now become almost a fixture in these things. Right about the same time, coincidentally or whatever, he hooked up with caddie Steve Williams after Williams' messy breakup from Tiger Woods. Or maybe Scott finally just became the kind of player most everyone always thought he could be. It happens.

MEDINAH, Ill. - No other trio of American golfers has qualified for more consecutive Ryder Cup teams than Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Jim Furyk. Collectively, they have won 146 official tournaments around the world, including 19 majors. That only makes their Ryder Cup record look all the more inferior. They have been the core of the U.S. team since 1997 at Valderrama, where they combined for a 3-6-1 record as the United States lost the cup. Perhaps it was a sign of what was to come.
