While we won't see Jim Furyk again until around the U.S. Open, his caddie is getting some temporary work with an up-and-coming player.
Mike "Fluff" Cowan is working with 27-year-old South Korean player Sung Kang at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Furyk, who has been out of action since withdrawing from the BMW Championship in September, chose to have surgery to fix a nagging left wrist problem which started around the Deutsche Bank Championship. Facing a three-month recovery, he will miss the Masters for the first time since 2004.
Cowan may not. Kang fired 11-under 60 on Friday at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course, just a shot shy of the seventh 59 in PGA Tour history.
