ATLANTA – Today wasn’t the day to challenge Jim Furyk.

Making one of Friday’s rare slip-ups, Furyk missed the green at the par-4 16th, failing to get up-and-down from a nearly impossible short-sided lie. Rather than taking on the hole, Furyk played it safe and found the opposite side of the green.

After bailing out with his third shot, the 16-time PGA TOUR winner heard a member of the gallery yell, “I could hit that shot!” Furyk smiled, two-putted for his bogey and walked back to his bag. He grabbed his golf ball and marker and wrote the fan a message before throwing him a souvenir.

What did the ball say? “Not a chance! – Jim Furyk”
