DAY 4 RBC CANADIAN OPEN

JULY 27 2014


ILE-BIZARD, Que. - This wasn't so much veteran Jim Furyk finding another way to lose a golf tournament as fellow veteran Tim Clark, a winner only once before on the PGA Tour, finding a way to win the RBC Canadian Open.

Shooting 30 on the back nine and birdieing five of the last eight holes over a tough Royal Montreal Golf Club Blue Course, Clark caught Furyk - who had started the final round with a three-shot lead, but looked tentative on the greens Sunday - on the 14th hole as he blazed to the finish and a one-stroke victory.

The 38-year-old birdied the 11th, 12th, 14th, 15th and 17th holes before knocking in a six-foot par putt on the 18th green to seal the win with a final round 65 and a total of 17-under par 263, his second victory to go with the 2010 Players Championship in his 284th Tour start.

Clark, a short but accurate hitter (his 266.9 average off the tee was 71st among the 73 players who made the cut), showed he's all the way back from elbow surgery which put him on the shelf for pretty much a year.



"I don't think I broke 75 for a few months," following the surgery, he said. "You've got to keep persevering you never give up hope and I'd like to say it was a lot of hard work, but I do what I need to do."

Furyk now hasn't won since 2010 despite sitting seven 54-hole leads (he's now won 10 of 26 times he's carried the lead into the final round on Tour) and said it was too soon to try and figure out why he didn't win.

"I mean, I shot 69. I didn't play a bad round of golf, but I hit the ball a lot better than that and I didn't score, didn't get the ball in the hole. On a day when the greens were this soft, the wind wasn't blowing that much, I only went out and made two birdies you've got to make more than two birdies and I wasn't able to. I just didn't putt well enough and I didn't convert the opportunities I had.

"I have to take my hat off to (Clark). He shot 30 on the back nine for a 65, so I'm definitely not going to take anything away from that. It was a heck of a round. I felt like if I shot under par on the back nine, I'd win and that wasn't the case."

Justin Hicks (64 for a total of 13-under) finished alone in third and Matt Kuchar (65), Michael Putnam (66) and Gonzalo Fdez-Castano (66) tied for fourth.

Weyburn, Sask.'s Graham DeLaet had a 68 to finish as low Canadian at 10-under with Manotick, Ont.'s Brad Fritsch turning in a 64 to tie for ninth.

Rounding out the Canadians were amateur Taylor Pendrith of Richmond Hill, Ont. with a 69 to finish 3-under in a tie for 43rd, Brantford, Ont.'s David Hearn (71, -2, T53), Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., (71, -2, T53) and Mike Weir of Bright's Grove, Ont., (71, +2, T66).
