PGA: The Barclays - Second RoundBy Andrew Both CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Reuters) - American 17-times PGA Tour winner Jim Furyk makes his comeback from injury at this week's Wells Fargo Championship, where Rory McIlroy is defending champion. Furyk, 45, has not played since September due to a left wrist injury that required surgery in February and he will have plenty of work to do if he is to secure a spot in his 10th consecutive Ryder Cup later this year. McIlroy is also raring to go after three weeks off, having not played since the Masters, where he tied for 10th and was not happy with aspects of his swing.
