Jim Furyk


Q. 69 for Jim Furyk, you're in at 14-under. Probably a little shy now in this one. How did you feel you played today?
JIM FURYK: I played pretty well today. I had my opportunities, especially on the back nine. I had four good opportunities for birdie, and I just couldn't really see a putt go in from 15 or 18, and really that is the difference. I needed to birdie two or three of those holes, and I wasn't able to make a putt.

Q. It was a fast start, wasn't it? Way to make a start with two quick birdies.
JIM FURYK: Yeah, hit an 8-iron left of the hole, this one was breaking maybe two cups left to right. It was nice to get off to a good start, and I really hadn't done that yet this week, especially on the front nine. To get out there and birdie 1 and 2 and get some momentum and birdie 5, and I had it at 3-under for a while. Little slip up at 6, but overall played pretty well today.

Q. The other shot I wanted to go through with you as well was the approach into 13. You hit about 253.
JIM FURYK: Yeah, that is my hybrid. I was playing a little downwind, playing short. Just trying to land one on the front of the green and see if I could chase it back there. I kind of fell and you know big mistake. I hit a great drive, great second shot. I left the eagle putt short. So I fell in love with the line, and left it a couple feet short.

Q. Talk me through how special the atmosphere of the crowds were here today?
JIM FURYK: Well, the Canadians are a proud bunch. They love their sports. I think they've always been a very good crowd. Obviously, they're pulling for Mr. Hearn out there. It's a matter of time. There are so many good Canadian players. I feel bad Mike Weir never won this golf tournament. But Graham DeLaet, David, there are a bunch of fine young players, so I'm sure it's going to happen.
