BALTIMORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Constellation-sponsored PGA Pro Jim Furyk picked up his 17th career PGA TOUR victory on Sunday at the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head Island, S.C., shooting a day’s-best 8-under par 63 and birdies on both holes of a two-hole playoff. This is Furyk’s second victory at RBC Heritage; the other came in 2010.
“Constellation is excited to congratulate Jim on his 17th PGA TOUR victory,” said Bruce Stewart, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Constellation. “Jim is a world-class competitor, and his confidence remained steadfast throughout the tournament and during his two-hole playoff, thanks to his intelligent, analytical and strategic play. This smart, thoughtful approach reflects Constellation’s brand and how we work with customers to manage their energy strategies. We look forward to our continued strong partnership with Jim.”
