JIM FURYK - PAT PEREZ
SHIGEKI MARUYAMA- STEVE MARINO
Furyk is and has been for many years, one of the best final round players on the USPGA tour, ranking inside the top dozen or so, virtually every year.
Perez's sunday scoring has picked up this year and he has posted a few low totals, but this looks a mismatch. In the last two seasons he has ranked 186-183, Furyk 4 and 12.
I do not really understand why, the rookie Marino, who has yet to finish higher than 6th on either of the main tours, has been made such a strong favourite to beat Maruyama.
The Japanese player has not really clicked in round 4 scoring this time round, but has ranked 16-21-36, in the previous three years and a closing 66 in the Travelers Championship, hinted at a return to that level of form. He beat Marino by 2 strokes yesterday and we have to back him today.
