ATLANTA -- Another Friday, another hot round from Jim Furyk, this time at the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola.
As the final group of Henrik Stenson and Adam Scott prepare to tee off at East Lake, Furyk has just made the turn in a red-hot 31. He started the day even par and is now just two off Stenson's lead.
Furyk, who shot the sixth 59 in PGA TOUR history last Friday in the second round of the BMW Championship, got things rolling with birdie putts of 4 and 15 feet at Nos. 3 and 4. A bogey at the fifth halted his momentum briefly, but Furyk finished the nine off with consecutive birdies from 14, 14 and 8 feet.
Gary Woodland, playing in the group behind Furyk, also shot 31 on the front nine. His fourth birdie, which came from 16 feet on the ninth hole, moved Woodland to 4 under for the tournament, as well.
Tiger Woods continues to climb the leaderboard after making a 15-footer at the 13th hole to move to 5 under for the day. Woods, who did not make a single birdie on Thursday for just the seventh time as a pro, is now 2 under for the tournament.
