Players Championship 2019: The loss will sting, but ’48-year-old Jim Furyk’ showed that he’s still got plenty left in the tank on Sunday

He didn't win 17 times on the PGA Tour by giving up when things didn't go his way. On Sunday at TPC Sawgrass, not to mention the whole week in Ponte Vedra Beach, he showed the grit he's shown his entire career, carding a final-round 67 that put him tantalizingly close to what could have been the most satisfying win of his career. He came up one shot short of winner Rory McIlroy, who is 19 years Furyk's junior and 161 spots ahead of him in the Official World Golf Ranking.
