Late Furyk disqualified

World No 6 Jim Furyk has been disqualified from the first of the FedEx Cup play-offs in America -- a day before it has even started.

Furyk was barred from The Barclays tournament in New Jersey because he overslept and missed his 7.30am tee-off time in the curtain-raising pro-am.

"I always use my phone as an alarm and it had no power this morning," Furyk explained.

The Ryder Cup star, who will win his seventh cap against Europe at Celtic Manor in October, was third in the play-off standings, but will now have to wait and see how much his blunder affects him in the four-tournament series.
