In September of 2020, Jim joined Arnold Palmer and Bruce Fleisher as the only players to win their first two starts on PGA TOUR Champions. In addition to his 17 career PGA TOUR titles, Furyk represented the United States on seven Presidents Cup teams and nine Ryder Cup teams, highlighted by his 2018 captaincy in Paris.
