Tim Clark won the Canadian Open this weekend at Royal Montreal Golf Club in Montreal, Quebec. He won by rallying. A back-nine 30 catapulted him to the top spot in Canada, where he won the 2nd PGA Tour event of his career (2010 PLAYERS Championship). Are these strong finishes becoming a theme on the 2014 PGA Tour (see Kevin Streelman’s unbelievable win).

Here at USGolfTV.com, we felt Tim Clark had a great chance of playing well at the Canadian Open. His game suited the course, his form had been strong and he’d had success in Canada before, we just didn’t know the depth of his Canadian successes.

In 1998, Tim Clark won his first professional golf tournament in Canada while he was a mini-tour vagabond seeking a profession. He actually, won two weeks in a row in Canada (New Brunswick Open and the CPGA Championship). He pointed out after the round, that now at age 38, the prospect that his first and final victories come in Canada– the home of his wife, Candice.

Sunday wasn’t all cookies for the South African. He was actually not the hunted, but in fact the hunter early in the day. It was Jim Furyk’s tournament on Sunday.

Furyk– now 0 for 7 with 54-hole leads since his 2010 Tour Championship win– was leading late at Royal Montreal, but unlike some of his other shortcomings, this one was not self-induced. Furyk was a victim this week.

Look at the score card comparisons of the two (NOTE: Furyk possessed a 3-stroke advantage over Clark before this stretch).

Life on the PGA Tour is such. These guys are good. And sometimes, good golf isn’t good enough.

Jim Furyk was the latest target of this famous PGA Tour mantra, while Tim Clark it’s latest beneficiary.
