Furyk looks to become another 40-something champ

Updated: Sunday, August 11 2013, 05:05 PM EDT

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) - Jim Furyk tees off in the PGA Championship with a one-stroke lead, looking to give golf another middle-aged major champion.

The 43-year-old Furyk is coming off a 2-under 68, which pushed him to 9 under overall. He'll play in the final group Sunday with Jason Dufner. Swedes Henrik Stenson and Jonas Blixt are next on the leaderboard. No Swedish man has won a Grand Slam event.

Last month, Phil Mickelson captured the British Open at age 43. The last time golf had back-to-back major champions in their 40s was 1986, when Jack Nicklaus won the Masters and Raymond Floyd followed in the U.S. Open.

Mickelson wasn't a factor at Oak Hill. He shot 72 to finish 12 over.

Tim Clark had a hole-in-one at the 11th.
