Pix of the Week: Great Parking Spot Available

Well, this picture pretty much says it all. It's a shot taken by CNBC sports business producer Tom Rotunno in the player parking lot at The Barclays.

It's the spot reserved for Jim Furyk, who of course was disqualified from this week's event after he failed to show up on time for Wednesday's Pro-Am. Per PGA Tour rules, players who miss their tee time for the Pro-Am cannot play in the tournament.

Furyk's agent told CNBC that the power charger on his iPhone fell out of the wall and the phone, where Furyk's only alarm was set, died. The golfer eventually woke up and missed getting to his hole by a few minutes.

Since this is the first event in the FedEx Cup playoffs and Furyk currently stands at No. 3 in the standings, not being here this week hurts and will likely cost him about five spots in the rankings.
