Jim Furyk


LEE PATTERSON: Appreciate you coming up here. Maybe couple comments about your round today and as you head into the weekend in good position.

JIM FURYK: I am happy with the position. Great shape for the weekend and I had a pretty good round today. I think I hit a few sloppy shots middle of the round, but I managed to get the ball in the hole and make some pars out of some tough spots and really I had a pretty solid day; wasn't quite as good as yesterday, but 67 is still a good score.


Q. What do you like about playing this event?

JIM FURYK: The weather right now. (laughs) After kind of a cold, wet West Coast it is nice to -- you couldn't beat this weather right now. Perfect temperature, no wind, and again, that is probably one of the reasons you are seeing a lot of low scores, perfect conditions out there for scoring. But I like the golf course. I always have. When I first came on Tour in 1994 I had a chance -- I was the last guy to get in the field here out of Q-School. I just really liked the golf course at the time. Then it had changed a little bit, the past few years and now it seems to be back closer to what it was when I started on Tour in 1994, 1995 and I like the golf course. I think it is -- I don't know if it's the perfect course or anything for my game, but I think it is a good solid test. I like a lot of Dick Wilson's work. I like La Costa a lot and the layout there and I like the layout here.

Q. If someone really rolling out here and if conditions stay like this, is 59 out of the question?

JIM FURYK: Yes. How is that? I think the odds are with me when I say that.

Q. Are you participating in that fishing tournament going on?

JIM FURYK: I haven't, no. No, I didn't bring much equipment down. I like to fish but I am not sure I will. I might just relax. When does it end, tomorrow?

Q. Today at 6?

JIM FURYK: It's not going to happen.

LEE PATTERSON: Go over your birdies for us too.

JIM FURYK: Birdied the first hole, knocked it in the left green-side bunker in 2 and hit a good bunker shot to about six feet, made that. I made a good par on 4, in red there. No. 5 was the next birdie. Hit it in the front right green-side bunker in two and I holed it from the bunker there. So it was a good boost.

LEE PATTERSON: How far was that?

JIM FURYK: Probably about, oh, between 10 and 15 yards probably. I was on the front right, hit it in the front right bunker trying to squeeze it in there a little bit; hit a great bunker shot. Fortunate it went in. I birdied No. 8, hit driver in the right rough; had to lay up, hit sand wedge to about three feet, made that for birdie. Then 13, I hit 3-iron in the green about -- it was pretty far, 30, 35 feet and knocked that in for birdie. Missed a little one for birdie on 16 and birdied 18 again. Hit driver and a 7-iron to about ten feet; made that for birdie.

LEE PATTERSON: Anything else? Thank you.
