Jiim Furyk tees off on the 15th hole during the third round of the RBC Canadian Open at the Royal Montreal Golf Club.

L'ILE-BLIZARD, Quebec – One day after matching the Royal Montreal Golf Club course record, Jim Furyk played bogey-free and carded a 5-under 65 to claim a three-stroke lead over Tim Clark heading into the final round of the RBC Canadian Open.

But Furyk has been in this position too many times to be caught looking ahead.

“There is a good round out there,” he said. “Guys can go out there and fire a low one and definitely put some heat on the last group.”

Can Furyk close and collect his third championship north of the border and his 17th PGA ...

Jim Furyk tees off on the eighth hole during the second round of the RBC Canadian Open at the Royal Montreal Golf Club.

L'ILE-BLIZARD, Quebec – The featured group of the morning – Canadian Graham DeLaet, Jim Furyk and Matt Kuchar – lived up to the hype, posting a total of 22 birdies on the soft, receptive greens at Royal Montreal Golf Club, and no one could catch them in the afternoon when the wind kicked up. Furyk and DeLaet matched the course record with 63s while Kuchar settled for a ho-hum 65.

“I was giving Kuch a bunch of crap about being the schlub in the group shooting a 65,” Furyk said. “Lord knows I’ve taken abuse from him over the years. So ...

Tim Petrovic fired a 6-under 64 on Thursday at the RBC Canadian Open.

PGA Tour veteran Tim Petrovic and 2013 Web.com Tour money leader Michael Putnam fired 6-under 64s on Thursday at the RBC Canadian Open, sharing a one-shot lead over Kyle Stanley and Taylor Pendrith.

Here are 5 Things to know from the first round in Canada:

1. LAST ONE IN . . . Tim Petrovic didn't even get a chance to play a practice round at Royal Montreal GC, finding his way into the field after Benjamin Alvarado withdrew on Tuesday.

Maybe he should try that more often after the 47-year-old had four birdies and an eagle to sit in a tie ...

Jarrod Lyle fired a 4-under 67 at the Web.com Tour's Midwest Classic on Thursday.

With wife and daughter in tow, Jarrod Lyle set out in his new RV last Tuesday from his home in Orlando with Kansas City firmly in his sights – the site of this week's Web.com Tour Midwest Classic.

Along the way, the family enjoyed counting what seemed like endless cornfields in America's midwest.

Needless to say, there are quite a few more cornfields than strokes it took him to get around in his first competitive round back in the U.S. after recovering from his second bout with leukemia over the past two years.

Lyle posted a bogey-free ...

Jack Nicklaus spoke to the media ahead of the 2014 PGA Championship at Valhalla.

At only 25, Rory McIlroy already has won three major championships, all different ones. But the count is just beginning, to hear the man who holds the record of 18 major titles.

“I think he’s going to win a lot of major championships,” Jack Nicklaus said Thursday via conference call. “I like his swagger ... his confidence.”

Nicklaus said he figures McIlroy will set records along the way. How many, and how many majors he’ll end up with, depends on the Northern Irishman’s desire, Nicklaus said.

Some players want to live a normal life and others decide records ...

Rory McIlroy led by as many as seven shots on Sunday at the British Open, which showed shades of Tiger Woods and his ability to run away from a major field.
Rory McIlroy led by as many as seven shots on Sunday at the British Open, which showed shades of Tiger Woods and his ability to run away from a major field.

Jeff Rude’s “Hate To Be Rude” column appears on Golfweek.com on Wednesday.

Rory McIlroy, newly minted Open Championship winner, has a remarkable record that actually has characteristics of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

Besides Woods, he is the lone rare separation player in decades. Not only is McIlroy three corners into the career Grand Slam, he won two of the major championships by eight strokes apiece and had a seven-shot lead on Sunday in the other. That’s Woodsian stuff.

The performance tendency of McIlroy, because he is only 25, will take a certain unknown shape over the ...

Rory McIlroy tees off on the second hole during the final round of the 2014 British Open at Royal Liverpool.

A day after Rory McIlroy won the Open Championship, he took a few minutes to answer some equipment questions for Golfweek via email:

What feedback did you give Nike when you were first shown the MMProto iron, and what made you decide to use it during the last two weeks?

I have seen and tested versions of the MMProto 2-iron for the past few months and worked with Nike to perfect this club for me. They brought me this 2-iron to try out at the Nike Performance Fitting Center at Archerfield (Edinburgh, Scotland) on Monday July 7th and I loved ...

Jarrod Lyle with his 2-year-old daughter, Lusi Joy, and wife, Briony, at their home in Orlando, Fla.

ORLANDO, Fla. – Her smile will melt your heart instantaneously. Her giggle is infectious; you can't help but bust out a bit yourself. Her bouncy red hair and innocent, big eyes command your attention.

Two-year-old Lusi Joy Lyle is a showstopper – destined to break the hearts of many.

And her pops is well aware of the trouble he is in a little more than a decade from now, but Jarrod Lyle already has a game plan.

Rickie Fowler moved to third in U.S. Ryder Cup points with his T-2 finish at the 2014 British Open at Royal Liverpool.
Rickie Fowler moved to third in U.S. Ryder Cup points with his T-2 finish at the 2014 British Open at Royal Liverpool.

"Two words to sum it up, Ryder Cup."

That's what Rickie Fowler said of his British Open runner-up performance. Never mind that it has him 3-for-3 finishing in the top five at majors this year.

At Royal Liverpool, Fowler was thinking of Gleneagles and the fact he rose from seventh to third in Ryder Cup points – pretty much securing a spot on the U.S. roster. He also let his patriotic spirit shine on Twitter.

"Well, going into the year the goal was to be in contention at majors and play well and have chances to win – and with ...

Rory McIlroy on Adam Scott's heels in OWGR

By winning the British Open, Rory McIlroy moved to No. 2 in OWGR behind Adam Scott (shown here during last month's U.S. Open).
By winning the British Open, Rory McIlroy moved to No. 2 in OWGR behind Adam Scott (shown here during last month's U.S. Open).

Winning a major comes with plenty of accolades. For Rory McIlroy after the 2014 British Open, it also vaults him to No. 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

By gaining six spots, McIlroy made the biggest leap in the top 15 of the OWGR with his victory at Royal Liverpool. Runner-up Rickie Fowler gained even more spots, rising seven spots from 25th to 18th. Sergio Garcia rose four spots from ninth to fifth.

Tiger Woods had possibly the most notable drop, his 69th-place finish in Hoylake dropping him from seventh to ninth. His Sunday playing partner, Jason Dufner, and ...

Tiger Woods is 214th in the current FedEx Cup standings.

Rory McIlroy's British Open win boosted his FedEx Cup points standing from 42nd to 11th, according to the PGA Tour, while Tiger Woods' standing took a hit.

Jimmy Walker and Bubba Watson remain first and second, while Dustin Johnson passed Matt Kuchar to move into third.

McIlroy's gains put him, for the time being, into the top 30 that would play in the season-ending Tour Championship. Also moving into the top 30 is Rickie Fowler, whose tie for second at Royal Liverpool boosted him from 34th to 22nd.

Rickie Fowler claimed his third top-five finish at a major championship in 2014 on Sunday at the British Open.

HOYLAKE, England – Rickie Fowler has two words to sum up his week at the Open Championship: Ryder Cup.

The orangeman is primed for another big stage and he piled on the points this week to prove it. Fowler’s joint runner-up finish with Sergio Garcia matches his performance at the U.S. Open, where he also played in the final group. While Rory McIlroy didn’t distance himself in Martin Kaymer-like fashion, he had enough of a cushion to keep any late runs from spoiling the Northern Irishman’s coronation.

On the eve of the final round, Fowler had this ...

Phil Mickelson shot a 4-under 68 in Sunday's final-round of the 2014 British Open at Royal Liverpool.

Phil Mickelson came in with less than his A-game, but in the end made a spirited defense of his Open Championship title.

Shooting a final-round 68, his best round in the majors this year, Mickelson leaves the United Kingdom with more confidence than he had before he hit the shores in Scotland.

“I played well, and I didn't give any shots away and kind of shot what I thought I should shoot over there,” Mickelson said after a round that included five birdies. “It was a good, solid round of 4-under. It was actually a good day for me ...

Tiger Woods during Sunday's final round of the 2014 British Open at Royal Liverpool in Hoylake, England.

HOYLAKE, England – His final-round assignment in the 143rd Open Championship was a lethargic effort, hardly reminiscent of the last visit to Royal Liverpool. Back then, Tiger Woods was brilliant in pulsating warmth, winner of a third Claret Jug.

But in coolish weather Sunday, Woods was done and finished and headed back home by the time Rory McIlroy took to the stage. That McIlroy handled his duties wonderfully and earned a third victory in his last 14 major chances is impressive stuff and will immediately open a floodgate of comparisons to Woods.

All well and good, but some perspective is required ...
