Greens in Regulation: 76.32%

Greens Hit: 261 / 342

PGA Tour veteran Jim Furyk currently sits in pole position for Greens in Regulation at 76.32%. At 49-years-old, Furyk is still going strong and still hopes to add to his 17 PGA Tour wins, with his last coming at the 2015 RBC Heritage, where he beat Kevin Kisner in a playoff.

With his unique swing, Furyk remains one of the most consitent iron strikers in the world, making hitting greens in regulation that little bit easier.
