Boston Globe Story on Furyk's Used Putter That Won Him $11.35 Million

Turns out the putter Jim Furyk used to win the Tour Championship, and ultimately the Fed Ex Cup, at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta this past Sunday, was discovered by Furyk in a used club bin at a store in South Easton, Mass. as detailed in this Boston Globe story. Furyk picked up the putter while playing in the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston in Norton a few weeks back.

The original owner of the putter was Paul Szep who twice won the Pulitzer Prize as editorial cartoonist for the Globe and still contributes to Golf Digest.

“I can’t believe it. It’s quite amusing,’’ said Szep, who watched the final holes on Sunday at a friend’s house in Siesta Key. “I said, ‘Hey, you’ve got to come see this. There’s my putter right there.
