Jim Furyk


Q.  How would you grade today?
JIM FURYK:  I played well.  I'm honestly disappointed with the finish.  I hit some good shots down the stretch.  I hit it as good as I could on 18.  I thought I flagged the 8‑iron, I'm surprised it came up short.
I've been getting the ball up and down really well, and hit terrific chips on 17 and 18.  Disappointed.  I fought all the way back from 3‑down.  I had all the momentum and I didn't put the ball on the fairway on 17 and didn't put the ball in the fairway on 18.
I don't feel I handed the match away, but I definitely made it too easy on the last two holes.

Q.  How hard was that chip on 18?  A lot of us could tell you were down, how difficult was that?
JIM FURYK:  It was a little bit of a lie.  I was in the short cut with a little bit of grain against me and expected it to be sticky.  I've been working all week really on the sticky overseed of making sure I really accelerated the club through the ball and I didn't there.  I kind of decelerated and quit on it.  Just a poor shot.  It wasn't an easy shot, but I should have been able to get it up there within six or seven feet inside, at least to give myself a par chance.

Q.  Overall, the week, your play has been very, very consistent, though?
JIM FURYK:  Yeah, I just‑‑ I think really what the difference was today that I just didn't hit it in the fairways.  And when I missed the fairways, the ball didn't turn out in a very good spot.  I felt like I got some bad breaks with where the ball ended up.  When I hit‑‑ I didn't hit the ball enough in the fairway.  I felt like I was putting better than I was the last few days.  But because I didn't put the ball in the fairway enough, I didn't give myself enough opportunities.

Q.  At the start of the week would you have taken quarter finals on Saturday?
JIM FURYK:  Well, I don't think any athlete would‑‑

Q.  Not satisfied with it?
JIM FURYK:  No, I don't think any athlete would.  It ruins the whole fun.  I feel like I played well.  But if you told me I could have 5th every week, there would be no reason to show up.
