      2010 FedExCup champion: Jim Furyk

    The 2010 season saw the most dramatic Sunday finale at East Lake in the four-year history of the FedExCup. Jim Furyk got up-and-down out of a greenside bunker on the par-3 18th to win THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola and the FedExCup. Furyk had finished 11th, 5th and 4th in the three previous FedExCup seasons. THE TOUR Championship victory was the third of the season for Furyk, who had gone the previous two seasons without a win. Here's a look at Furyk's season and how he won the FedExCup:

    Furyk's reaction to winning the FedExCup

    • "It's only four years old, but 40 years from now, there should be a lot of history in this trophy. And to have 'Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk' ... I'm very proud of that, because those two can flat play -- two of the most dominant players of my era, for sure."

    • "This (FedExCup) is very special to me, but I knew if I worried too much about this I couldn't get that if that makes sense."

    • "To win the season trophy here is just a lot of fun. There was a lot riding on my round today, a lot riding down the stretch in some terrible weather, and I was able to -- although it didn't look pretty the last three, I was able to get the job done and win again, and this is very special."


    Season in review

    Winless in back-to-back seasons for the first time in his professional career, Jim Furyk notched three victories and four other top-10 finishes in 2010. He broke out of his winless drought in just his fifth start at the Transitions Championship. Furyk jumped to No. 2 in the FedExCup standings when he won a playoff at the Verizon Heritage in April and remained in the top 10 throughout the regular season. After being disqualified from The Barclays when he missed his pro-am tee time, Furyk fell to No. 11 in the standings. He took a one-shot lead into the 72nd hole at East Lake, but missed the green of the par 3 to the right, landing in a bunker about 50 feet from the hole. Needing to make a par to win THE TOUR Championship and the FedExCup, Furyk knocked his shot within three feet and tapped in for victory.
