2010 RBC Heritage champion Jim Furyk fired a three under 68 Thursday in round one at Harbour Town and held the clubhouse lead as of 2:30 PM. Furyk has had a lot of success over the years at Hilton Head with five top ten finishes. He was among the leaders going in last year’s final round but a 76 took him out of the running.
Weather conditions were a little tough Thursday morning with temperatues in the 40s to start the day, and the wind was a bit tricky as well. And Furyk brought up the issue of the condition of the greens which he implied was not up to the standards he’s seen here.
