JIM FURYK: Well, playing well last week and coming to a course I like this week was nice. That's a good feeling.
I'm excited about St. Andrews. I will say that I'm a player that really feels prepared as far as doing your homework, knowing your yardage book, knowing your way around golf courses. St. Andrews is by far the most difficult test of being prepared that I've ever witnessed. There's so many different ways to play that golf course, and even though I played the Open there in 2000, I think 2000 was the last time, I've been around the place probably 10, 12 times, I still feel like I don't know the golf course as well as I would like to, and there isn't a place I played Olympia Fields twice and felt like I could get around that golf course with my eyes closed. Not from a physical standpoint, but mentally I knew what I was supposed to do with the golf ball.
There aren't many golf courses that I can play ten times that I don't really feel good about where I'm supposed to hit it a bunch of times. My caddie has been around there a ton. I'll use a lot of his knowledge. You can hit tee shots that are 70 yards different angles from one day to the next due to how the wind is blowing and how it's playing. I'm excited about it and anxious to get some practice rounds and get a good feel for the course.
That's maybe more long winded than you were hoping for.
JOAN v.T. ALEXANDER: Thank you, Jim, for joining us.
