Furyk, who won The Ally Championship last month in Michigan in his tour debut, joined Arnold Palmer and Bruce Fleisher as the only players to win their first two PGA TOUR Champions starts, when he beat Jerry Kelly with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff.

"I feel very fortunate, it means a lot," Furyk said. "When I won at Ally, I hadn't won in over five years. It's why we play the game, it's why you work so hard, it's to have this feeling. I feel honored I guess to be mentioned with AP. I look at the hard work I put in a lot of this year through our delay, our break."

Furyk, the 2003 U.S. Open winner and 17-time PGA TOUR champion, played the first six holes Sunday in 5 under, including an eagle on the par-5 second and three birdies.

"I drove the ball so well today and especially on the back nine," Furyk said, "I didn't score as well on the back, but I drove the ball well, relied on that, tried to make the same swing."

Jim Furyk joined the Nexbelt Team of Staff Professionals in 2015 and is currently an ambassador for their Rowland Thomas Series of ratchet belts on Tour.

Company Founders, Tom Hunsucker, and Eddie and Francis Rowland started Nexbelt in 2010 with a vision to reinvent the way Americans buy, sell and wear their belts. Tired of the old outdated pin/buckle system, they set their sights on creating a belt that would be both adjustable and highly fashionable at the same time. Out of this passion, Nexbelt, "The Belt With No Holes" was born.
