Nexbelt Tour Staff Pro, Jim Furyk, silenced his critics on Sunday at the RBC Heritage when he recorded his 17th career PGA TOUR victory at the Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, SC.
It’s been more than four years and a lot of heartaches since he last hoisted a tournament trophy, but Furyk said he never gave up hope of winning again on the PGA TOUR.
Furyk shot a day’s-best 8-under par 63 on Sunday and then held off South Carolina native Kevin Kisner in a two-hole playoff with a combination of deadly accurate approach shots and clutch birdie putts.
When the winning putt from 12 feet at Harbour Town’s 17th hole dropped, the two-time RBC Heritage Champion (Furyk won previously in 2010) showed what it meant to him, punctuating the crowd’s cheers with a fist pump. “A lot of emotion, four and a half years’ worth, went into that punch,” said Furyk. “I can’t think of a more fitting place to kind of break that streak and get another win under my belt. This is my favorite event. I love being here. And outside of winning another major championship (to add to his 2003 U.S. Open), this is the perfect place to do it.”
This victory earned Furyk a paycheck for $1,062,000.00 and 500 FedEx Cup Points moving him up to 19th on the FedEx Cup Points List and 5th in the Official World Golf World Rankings.
“It was so exciting to watch Jim sink that putt,” said Eddie Rowland, Co-Founder of Nexbelt. “We all knew it was just a matter of time before he won again, he’s just too good a player. Now we get to share that victory with him at his Furyk & Friends Concert and Celebrity Golf Classic in Ponte Vedra, FL. What an amazing week!”

Company Founders, Tom Hunsucker, and Eddie and Francis Rowland started Nexbelt in 2010 with a vision to reinvent the way Americans buy, sell and wear their belts. Tired of the old outdated pin/buckle system, they set their sights on creating a belt that would be both adjustable and highly fashionable at the same time. Out of this passion, Nexbelt, “The Belt With No Holes” was born.
