I’ve spoken of Jim Furyk stories in other threads so I will not drone on here however I will say that Mr. Palmer & Jim are THE two Classiest Tour Pros that I’ve ever spent time with.   That said,

Absolutely top man.   The Monday Practice round at the 2015 Open. Out on the 13th tee watching some of the guys going through and Furyk arrives, he was playing with someone but I forget now how that

Richard, love your stories and recollections.

Lots of wins, a us open, contender in many major championships.

Absolutely top man.

 

The Monday Practice round at the 2015 Open. Out on the 13th tee watching some of the guys going through and Furyk arrives, he was playing with someone but I forget now how that was. It was really quiet out there. It was early Monday morning and we were quite far out so there was myself, another two guys and a father and son on the tee. As Furyk came over to the tee he said hello to everyone and cracked a joke. He then went over to the father and son, the son must have been about 6 and started speaking to the youngster. Asking him if he was enjoying his day, who he was looking forward to seeing, if he was beating his dad at golf yet, that kind of thing. The dad asked if he could get a picture. Furyk said sure, took the son inside the ropes and stood next to the tee next to the staff bag. Made sure that the dad got a good picture and then said to to the son to stay inside the ropes and watch them tee off. After that, Furyk gave the youngster a ball and an autograph in his programme.

 

Such a simple thing to do but to go to out of his way to make sure that father and son had a memorable moment like that, really spoke volumes to the class of the guy. He didn’t need to do it, no one would have had any issue if he had done exactly what most of the other guys did, come onto the tee, sign an autograph or two and then get the head down into their yardage book but to take a couple minutes out of his day and to go above and beyond the way that he did, really struck me. Furyk is an absolute credit to himself, to his family and to this game.

He does not, lol??‍♂️

 

That said, if I could pick a foursome of the Pros that I’ve gotten to Play with over the decades for “one more round,” he would be in that group for sure??

 

Have a Great Week Randy?

Hey Bro, great to hear from ya and I hope that all’s well with you and the Fam?!!

 

Yah, he was/is an excellent athlete, though he doesn’t look it, lol. Jim can also hoop a lil. We were over at the club and heading down to hit some balls on the line pre-round and I was in the locker changing and Jim was waiting outside by the path that leads downhill to our practice area and to the right was an asphalt area that lead from the clubhouse to the lower Mens’ parking lot. This area was also where the caddies waited to be called and there were benches and a basketball? hoop up on the clubhouse wall.

 

I walked through the shop and the locker storage area out the back door to the practice area and who do I see with his visor turned around backwards but Jimbo, Playin PIG with the caddies??

 

I was down on the line probably 10-15 minutes when Jim came down, and he had lost a game for $5 and the kid had him sign the five dollar bill?, so Jim gave him another five to spend, haha

 

I mean, who the h*ll even thinks of that???

 

Sam would’ve broken the five, kept $4, signed a single, given it to the kid and told him that golf’s how he made his living??

 

Stay Well Brother?Madison sends hugs & kisses??

 

My Best,

rP
