JIM FURYK: Well, there's really not -- you just adjust to the conditions. Really there's spots in the fairways that I want to hit my tee ball and there's yardages that I want to hit to. I use a yardage. It might be 250 yards off of 6 tee. And whatever it's going to take. Sometimes that's a 2-iron, today it might be a 4-wood. Usually I actually carry a 2-iron in my bag at this event to control it off the tee and let it run down the fairways. But because we're not getting that this week I just left the 4-wood in my bag, which is usually there. I carry a 2-iron normally at this event and the British Open. And there's just no use for it for me this week. The 4-wood is more valuable. So I left it in the bag and a 2-iron will have to wait until the British.
Q. How do you feel about going into this week? Does it set up perfectly do you think to make a good run?
JIM FURYK: I'm pretty confident with my game. I had a good weekend last week. Played pretty well. I've improved a little bit. I made a few mistakes today that irked me a little bit out there. But I also made a couple long putts and I hit a lot of really good iron shots today. So I'm excited for the weekend. I feel good about my game. Going back you asked what you would change or how do you, it's much easier to adapt to soft conditions than let's say by Sunday, I know we're supposed to get more rain, but let's say by Sunday it was going to get firm and fast again. It would be much harder to adapt going back to more difficult than it would be to being easier. So it's a much easier on us going from hard to soft than it is going vice versa.
TODD BUDNICK: Go over the card then, Jim, if we could.
JIM FURYK: Okay. Started out with a birdie on number one. I hit a driver and a 3-wood on the front edge. Made a good 2-putt from long distance. Second putt was about six feet.
Number 3, I about half popped up my driver. I hit an awful drive there. Probably only went maybe 240 yards. And I had to hit 3-iron into the green. I knocked a 3-iron in the middle left side of the green. I was 50 feet from the pin and made it for a birdie. So there was one that I stole.
Number 4, I hit a 3-iron, it got towards the back of the green right past the pin. I was about 30 feet away. I rolled it about three feet past and missed it on the way back. Made bogey. So there was one three putt.
Number 7, I hit a driver and a 9-iron to about 15 feet. Made that for a birdie.
Number 8 I hit a 5-iron and I made about a 30 footer there. Up over the ridge for a birdie. So second long putt there.
Then number nine I hit a 4-wood off the tee perfect. I hit a 8-iron into the green and I pulled it just left of the green. It was not quite in the bunker, it was about four five yards past the water over there. Hit a bad chip to about 10 feet. I missed the putt.
Next birdie is No. 11. I hit driver, laid up with a 5-iron. I hit sand wedge to about four feet.
Number 12, I hit a driver and a 9-iron I believe. I hit that to about 15 feet.
15, I hit driver, 7-iron to about six inches.
16, I hit an 8-iron towards the front of the green. I had about 40 feet. I was in between 7 and 8-iron, decided to hit the hard 8. And unfortunately I didn't hit it very hard. So I left it on the front of the green. But still a straight uphill putt. No excuse. I left it six feet short and hit a bad putt. 3-putted there.
17, I hit a 4-wood off the tee and a pitching wedge to about 12 feet. And that's it. The rest were pars.
Q. Where is the tee, where are they playing the tee on number four? The par-3?
JIM FURYK: It's up again. It's up again. I have my pin sheet. I'm going to say it was about 215 or so to the hole. I hit 3-iron. So it wasn't that long. You know what, number four was 206 to the front and 11. 217. It was kind of sitting on the front left part of the green over the bunker. So, no, it's not, it wasn't back either the first two days.
TODD BUDNICK: Everybody set? Great. Thank you.
JIM FURYK: Thanks.
