KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Jim Furyk wanted nothing more than to be in Kapalua for the start of the new year on the PGA TOUR. His left wrist refused to cooperate.

Furyk hasn’t played since he walked off the course in the first round of the BMW Championship on Sept. 17 with what turned out to be a bone bruise on his wrist. He wound up missing The Presidents Cup, and took the rest of the year off to make sure it was fully healed.

But it’s taking longer than he expected.
