This column marks the beginning of a weekly feature called "ProFiles." Our aim is to highlight high profile people associated with golf's biggest stage. You can expect to see current PGA players, past greats, architects and influential people in the game featured one at a time every week. I'm looking foreword to looking at colorful characters in golf each week with you.
Jim Furyk is the player I've chosen for this first installment of "ProFiles." I'm impressed with the kind of golf that Furyk has been playing this year even though we could safely say he has not found the kind of results that he might have became accustomed to through the middle of his career… yet. Jim Furyk is a bit of an anomaly on Tour as he has such a strange looking swing. In a day and age where many swing coaches are saying many of the same things about swing plane and technique Jim does not fit their profile. David Feherty once said he thought Furyk's swing looked like "an octopus falling out of a tree." Well, this octopus is a classy guy in my book.
