American golfer Jim Furyk celebrated his 42nd birthday on Saturday, the 12th of May, the day on which the third round of play was going on at the TPC Sawgrass at the US PGA Players Championship, with family members gathering around him as he set foot on the greens. At one point of time on the previous day, it was possible that Jim’s family might just have to make do with a quite birthday celebration for him as he was on the verge of not making the cut on Friday after the second round but he finished the day with a score of two under thanks to some strong displays which meant that he will be sticking around for the action on the weekend, enabling his family to celebrate with him on the golf course.
Some reporters present on the course managed to get an interview with his wife Tabitha, who stated that when Jim Furyk missed the cut at The Players Championship last year, it was extremely hard for him as he loved the tournament and one day hopes to be able to win it as well. Tabitha also handed out over 40 passes to her friends and family who are eager to follow her husband at the TPC Sawgrass and also invited some of the classmates of their two children so that they could catch the 42 year old in live action.
Speaking about the invitation passes, Tabitha added with a smile that it will be a surprise for the reporters that are present but she did say that Furyk will have plenty of supporters over the weekend.
Both the parents of Jim Furyk as well as the parents of Tabitha were in attendance to catch the American in action on the Friday and will be cheering for him over the weekend as well.
