At the RBC Canadian Open, Tim Clark waited until the back nine to put together one of the best Sunday charges of the season. Clark birdied five holes on the back to shoot a five-under 65, and defeat third round leader Jim Furyk by one stroke. The Canadian Open is the second win of his career on the PGA Tour.

Jim Furyk is the ultimate grinder. Much is made of the towering drives hit by the players today, but what Furyk lacks in power, he makes up in consistency and mental fortitude. The ’03 U.S. Open champ has found himself on the first page of the leader board once again after shooting 68-71 for a five-under total.

It is surprising to see Jim Furyk has not played well at The Open in recent years because he has the experience and patience to contend at golf’s oldest championship. In the opening round at Hoylake, Furyk showed what he is capable of with a four-under 68 to tie for third place.

HUGS!

HUGS!

Just when it looked like Martin Kaymer was about to crumble, he came up big on the famed par-3 17th at TPC Sawgrass with one of the most clutch (yet improbable) par saves. (At least he didn’t hit it like a “wimp,” though.) The 29-year-old German struck a gap wedge up onto the island green and then it spun all the way back into the rough — just short of the water.

For the win!

The road back to the winner’s circle

Almost three years ago, J.B. Holmes was diagnosed with Chiara malformations in his brain and discovered he needed surgery to remove the pressure that was causing vertigo-like symptoms. He had his first — yes, that’s right — brain surgery in September 2011.

He keeps the piece of his skull that was removed in his closet. Now, he might put it in the trophy he won on Sunday at Quail Hollow Club.

Before I jetted down to Atlanta for the Tour Championship, GNN’s Ryan Ballengee joined me to discuss Zach Johnson’s win at the BMW Championship, Jim Furyk’s 59 and Tiger Woods and Oscillate-Gate, along with a quick preview of this week’s Tour Championship. We also chat about the big news that was officially announced earlier today.

By the way, Ballengee and I still need a name for our weekly Hangout show. Suggestions welcome!

Here now, we have a screen grab from one of Geoff Shackelford’s readers of Tiger Woods and the incident during the second round that resulted in a two-stroke penalty (go here for the video footage). Here’s the ball before Woods started meddling with the loose impediments around it and after.

Zach rallies for the win

Zach rallies for the win

And then there were 30 — that is, players who will advance to the FedExCup Playoff finale at East Lake GC in Atlanta. Several guys came through in the clutch and played their way into the Tour Championship, and several others didn’t have the best of weeks and were bumped out of the top 30 in the FEC points rankings.

Zach Johnson fired a six-under 65 to shoot 16-under total and win the weather-delayed BMW Championship on Monday by two shots over Nick Watney.

Fifty-effing-nine!

Fifty-effing-nine!

Jim Furyk shot a sizzling 12-under 59 to become only the sixth player to post golf’s magic number during the second round of the BMW Championship.

Furyk, who started on no. 10, posted six birdies and an eagle on the back nine (his first) for an eight-under 28 at Conway Farms — which matched Phil Mickelson’s effort two weeks ago in the first round of the Deutsche Bank Championship (but Phil had to settle with a 63).

The question was whether Furyk could carry over the momentum on the next nine holes and control his nerves to achieve such a remarkable feat.
