Jim Furyk has been one of the most consistent golfers on the PGA tour for the past decade. The 2010 PGA Player of the Year recently teamed up with GE’s healthymagination initiative to help professional athletes and casual sports players prevent and diagnose injuries with the help of new technologies.

Furyk, who spent over 350 weeks in the top-10 rankings from 1999 to 2010, is known as “The Grinder.” His style of play and his unconventional swing make him a prime candidate for injuries. Golf’s certainly not a contact sports, but the game does put some wear and tear on the body.

We spoke to Furyk about preventing injuries, the new technologies employed by GE healthymagination to diagnose injuries, his trademark goofy swing, his expectations for Augusta and his favorite places to play golf. Here’s the full interview:
