Jim Furyk's First Act as USA Ryder Cup Captain for Paris 2018? He Joins Twitter

Jim Furyk has been named the U.S. Ryder Cup captain for the Paris match against Europe in 2018  and he's already accomplished a major task that comes with the job -- setting up a Twitter account.
The handle @jimfuryk was created in December 2016 -- perhaps pre-emptively? -- and tweeted for the first time Wednesday, after the announcement of Furyk as Ryder Cup captain. Welcome to 2017, Jim!
There are several accounts with Furyk's name a part of the handle, but most are parodies.
There was a @Jim_Furyk account created in April 2014, but it's tweeted just twice. It started off strongly, sending out "Just set up my Twitter! #myfirsttweet" but tweeted only one time after that, which was a shoutout to J.B. Holmes after he won the 2014 Wells Fargo Championship (beating Furyk by one).
Whether those were actual Furyk tweets will remain one of golf's biggest mysteries.
As for his new handle, Furyk follows 23 accounts -- all golf related -- and has more than 2,000 followers. Now that that's done, bring on Paris.
