EconomyEditor's PickJim Furyk takes one-shot lead into final round at Charles Schwab Cup

November 14, 2021

JIM Furyk is 18 holes away from adding a Champions Tour points title to his impressive resume.

Furyk fired a 65 on Saturday in the third round of the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, holding on to a one-stroke lead heading into Sunday’s final round. Furyk sits at 16-under 197.

If Furyk holds on for the victory in Phoenix, he claims the season points title.

However, Bernhard Langer rebounded from back pain and a poor round Friday to card a 63, vaulting 22 spots back up the leaderboard to sit tied for ninth at 10 under. Though winning the tourney is likely out of the question, Langer put himself in position to claim a sixth Charles Schwab Cup if Furyk can’t bring home the victory.

Furyk turned in a clean card Saturday and has just three bogeys through 54 holes.

Langer put together four birdies and two eagles on a bogey-free day and was effusive about his round after shooting 72 on Friday.

Kirk Triplett, solo leader after 36 holes, shot 69 to sit alone in second at 15 under, one shot behind Furyk. Canada’s Stephen Ames (65) and New Zealand’s Steven Alker (68) are tied for third two shots back.

Phil Mickelson posted a 68 and is at 13 under, three shots back. Scott Parel (66) is four shots back alone in sixth. — Reuters
