VIDEO: Jim Furyk makes par from the side of a Pebble Beach cliff


Jim Furyk shouldn't have hit his ball onto the side of a cliff at Pebble Beach Golf Links, but he made the best of a lousy situation on Sunday.

Furyk's drive at the par-5 sixth went well right, leaving him in a precarious position. Instead of taking an unplayable lie, Furyk found a stance and hit his ball back to the fairway. He eventually made par on the hole, which was critical after getting off to a flat start in search of his first PGA Tour win since the 2010 Tour Championship.

Sunday marked the 24th time in Furyk's PGA Tour career that he entered the final round with the lead. He has failed to close the deal each of the last eight times he's led with 18 holes to go.
