“Pretty humbling, to think of all the great players, great names, to be the very lowest and the only person right now [at 58] is pretty special,” Furyk told Golf Channel after finishing fifth at the Travelers Championship.

Hehit all 18 greens in regulation and shoteight-under 27 on the front nine thanks to six birdies and aneagle at the par-four third, where he holed out from 120 metres.
