ended more than 2 years without a victory yesterday when he holed key putts on the final two holes for a 5-under 67 and a one-shot victory in the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

It was his first victory since the 2007 Canadian Open, and along with $1.35 million, it moved Furyk to No. 6 in the world.
