Jim Furyk is just over a year removed from a disappointing U.S. Open and Bridgestone Invitational, a pair of tournaments where he blew leads late.
But he’s obviously moved past those major opportunities lost, as he holds the 54-hole lead at this week’s PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club.
Furyk posted a third-round 68, giving him rounds of 65-68-68, and leads by a shot over second-round leader Jason Dufner and two over Henrik Stenson.
It could turn out that redemption is the key motivator in Sunday’s final round as Furyk looks to make amends for his big misses a year ago.
Dufner also let one get away when he blew a five-shot lead in the final round of the 2011 PGA Championship.
Can either Henrik Stenson (-7) or Jason Blixt (-6) become the first Swede to win a PGA Championship?
Here are the 10 guys with the best odds to win.
