Notable: Plagued by inconsistency this year, Furyk has fluctuated from second place (at the Memorial Tournament in early June) to twice on the wrong side of the cut (at the Verizon Heritage and the Arnold Palmer Invitational) and seemingly everywhere in between. He finished tied for third last year at the AT&T National and was one of the tournamentís biggest draws.

Personal: His father, Mike, has been his only swing instructor. And it shows. Furyk is known for his long, looping, unathletic-looking swing.
