Q. How was the wind today when you played? In the morning it was pretty much non-existent.
JIM FURYK: It was pretty much non-existent. It was a little breezy but not much. On my eighth or ninth hole, it kicked up, and then it would kind of -- it went back and forth but it was blowing -- I wouldn't say it was blowing hard, but it was a fair wind for most of that side and it would kick up sometimes and it was a little harder than others. It definitely -- my last ten holes were more difficult than my first eight because of the wind.
Q. How long was the 3-iron on 17? Have you ever had an albatross before?
JIM FURYK: That 3-iron was 208, 205 -- 213, no, I've never made a double-eagle, an albatross, I guess.
Q. Did you see that it had a chance to go in?
JIM FURYK: It was about that far short right of the pin (indicating a few inches). The fans got a little rise from it. I knew, the way they reacted, I felt I kind of had just a tap-in, kind of a gimmee. I was hoping, at least.
Q. This is your fourth week in a row. Are you good at five weeks in a row?
JIM FURYK: It's been a long time. I haven't done that maybe since my rookie year.
Q. So is that fair to assume you won't play next week?
JIM FURYK: It's fair to assume, yes. It's 100% sure; that's how fair it is.
Q. It looks like all the scores, there's very few in the afternoon are as good as the morning ones. Was it a distinct disadvantage to be in the afternoon or will it even out tomorrow?
JIM FURYK: I think the only way for me -- because I didn't play in the morning. The only way for me to really comment on that is just take the average score in the morning and afternoon and that will pretty much sum it up.
As far as playing tournaments in a row, if I played next week, then it's six in a row. And going into THE PLAYERS Championship being the sixth tournament is just not wise, in my opinion. Because I've been playing very well and a lot of rounds and a lot of stress, and I just don't think that's a wise decision.
