JIM FURYK: You know what, though, the great thing about major championships and the U.S. Open is I'm always going to be the 2003 U.S. Open champion. But I'll always be the 2003 U.S. Open champion. I was playing as a rookie in Milwaukee, and Tom Watson and I got paired together, and we went off like first off the back nine. We were dead last in the tournament and we were playing in a twosome going off Sunday morning, off the back nine, and there's ten people around the tee, and the announcer was very excited that Tom Watson was on the tee, and he went through every major championship he won. The group behind us was just about getting to the tee when he was done, and then he said, next on the tee, Jim Furyk. So those titles always stick.
And yeah, it would be nice to -- I'd be lying if I would say it wouldn't be nice to play the U.S. Open as the defending champion. But that was something I got over last week, and I put it behind me.
The first time my doctor mentioned surgery, I took the big gulp and said, oh, no, surgery, I can't believe it. And -- but I've been over all that. I'm to the point now that I know that PLAYERS Championship is out, I know The Masters is out, possibly the U.S. Open, possibly more major championships, possibly the Ryder Cup down the road. And I'm fine with that. I'm very happy with the way things went. I'm happy that my doctor had a big smile on his face after surgery and said things went great. And he's given me a time frame, and it's a big, general time frame, and we'll see how my body heals.
