Jim Furyk put his 59 behind him with a round that was 10 shots higher Saturday in the BMW Championship. Now all he wants is a trophy.
Furyk recovered from a sluggish start with three birdies in a five-hole stretch around the turn. A three-putt bogey from 30 feet on the par-5 18th forced him to settle for a 2-under 69 and a one-shot lead over Steve Stricker.
It was a far different finish from Friday, when Furyk hit a wedge to three feet for birdie on his final hole (No. 9) for a 12-under 59, becoming only the sixth player in PGA Tour history to hit golf’s magic number.

Blown away: The latest attempt to start the PGA Tour season lasted just over an hour.
High wind returned to Kapalua on Sunday and left officials no choice but to bring the players in from the Plantation Course with no one completing more than five holes. There was no immediate indication whether the opening round could resume.
An hour was enough to show some of the most wicked conditions around. (Photos: Christian Petersen/Getty Images)
