In marching to his first career major tournament win, Furyk tallied 18 birdies and 44 pars and led the field in greens in regulation. It was Furyk's eighth career PGA Tour victory in 10 years as a professional. He pocketed $1.08 million for the victory.
No stranger to success, Furyk was a member of Arizona's 1992 national championship team and a two-time All-American. He was a three-time all-Pac-10 selection, while his 176 career rounds played ranks fourth in Arizona history. A Mary J. Roby Academic Award winner in 1989 and 1991, Furyk was inducted into the University of Arizona Sports Hall of Fame in 1997.
Fellow Wildcat Ricky Barnes posted a four-round total of 71-71-79-70=291 (+11) to finish tied for 59th place. For Barnes, the 2003 co-winner of the Ben Hogan Award as the best amateur player in college golf, it was his best U.S. Open finish in three career appearances (2000, 2002). It was also the third made cut for the Stockton, Calif., native in three PGA Tour events this season.
Furyk's victory marks the third United States Golf Association championship for current or former University of Arizona golfers in the past year. In addition to Furyk's heroics, Don Pooley (1970-73) won the 2002 U.S. Senior Open and Barnes (1999-2003) won the 2002 U.S. Amateur.
