Dietary Changes Turn It Around for Jim Furyk

SOMETIMES IT TAKES TIME to see results, but no one grinds harder or stays more committed to what he’s doing than Jim Furyk. Not long after his last PGA Tour victory at the 2007 Canadian Open, Jim got some pregame-meal advice from former Pittsburgh Steeler Jerome Bettis.

Jim cut out the eggs (too much cholesterol), the pancakes (not good) and the bacon (bad for you, real bad). Although he didn’t see immediate results, he stayed with it and stayed hungry. On Sunday at the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Florida, it finally paid off.

Congratulations to that lean mean golfing machine, Jim Furyk, for winning the 2010 Transitions Championship.
