Jim Furyk makes strong PGA Tour season debut and takes a 1-shot lead at Pebble Beach

Jim Furyk made seven birdies over his last 10 holes at Pebble Beach on Saturday for a 9-under 63 to take a one-shot lead going into the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Furyk isn't showing much sign of rust for someone competing for the first time since the Ryder Cup in late September. Now he has another chance to end a winless drought of more than four years.

Furyk was at 18-under 198

Brandt Snedeker and Matt Jones each shot 67 at Pebble Beach and were one shot behind. Nick Watney birdied his last hole for a 65 at Pebble Beach and was two shots behind.

Furyk has failed to win his last eight times when he had at least a share of the 54-hole lead.
