WGC ACCENTURE MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP


February 22, 2014


Jim Furyk


MARANA, ARIZONA

Q.テつ How would you grade today?
JIM FURYK:テつ I played well.テつ I'm honestly disappointed with the finish.テつ I hit some good shots down the stretch.テつ I hit it as good as I could on 18.テつ 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.テつ Disappointed.テつ I fought all the way back from 3‑down.テつ 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.テつ How hard was that chip on 18?テつ A lot of us could tell you were down, how difficult was that?
JIM FURYK:テつ It was a little bit of a lie.テつ I was in the short cut with a little bit of grain against me and expected it to be sticky.テつ 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.テつ I kind of decelerated and quit on it.テつ Just a poor shot.テつ 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.テつ Overall, the week, your play has been very, very consistent, though?
JIM FURYK:テつ Yeah, I just‑‑ I think really what the difference was today that I just didn't hit it in the fairways.テつ And when I missed the fairways, the ball didn't turn out in a very good spot.テつ I felt like I got some bad breaks with where the ball ended up.テつ When I hit‑‑ I didn't hit the ball enough in the fairway.テつ I felt like I was putting better than I was the last few days.テつ But because I didn't put the ball in the fairway enough, I didn't give myself enough opportunities.

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

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