Furyk takes roundabout route for birdie
You've heard golf announcers talk about "using the backstop" of the green's slope to help a wedge or chip shot roll back closer to the pin?
Well, here's a perfect example of it from Jim Furyk on Saturday during third-round action at the Northern Trust Open. Furyk is 41 feet away on the par-3 sixth hole at Riviera when he chips his ball well over the flagstick. But watch what happens after it lands!
Just a routine birdie, right?
