Furyk: I played my heart out
Jim Furyk, who tied for second place at the US Open on Sunday after firing a final round four-under-par 66 to finish one-under overall, says he regrets not setting up a birdie putt on the final hole.
The 46-year-old American finished three shots behind winner Dustin Johnson with countryman Scott Piercy and Ireland's Shane Lowry all finishing with a total of 279 strokes from their four rounds.
At one stage on Sunday, Furyk held the clubhouse lead when finishing his round and had he played the last hole better could have got to two-under but bogeyed the hole instead.
In an interview afterwards, Furyk said that his one regret was not getting the ball onto the fairway at the 18th hole as he felt it could have made things interesting.
“I played my heart out," Furyk said. "The one regret … I wish I’d have got that ball on the fairway at 18. It would have been a little more exciting.
“I had a ton of support this week from my birthplace, West Chester, I heard a lot. I heard Lancaster, where I grew up. I heard Manheim Township where I went to high school.
"I heard all kinds of stuff from Western Pa. My dad was a pro in Uniontown. I heard every little town and borough through here. I had a lot of places claiming me. It was a lot of fun."
