Q. How good were the chips on 18?
JIM FURYK: The first one was easier. I had more green to work with and not a severe SLOPE. I drew a terrible lie. The second one I dropped it into an absolute perfect lie and it was a more difficult golf shot. I had to land it short of the green to get it by the pin. The other one I flew it by the green and stopped it by the pin. So the second one the chip that Scott had in regulation was more difficult than the one I did.
Q. Are you concerned as the fan base gross more with golf even though you said you understand what the fans -- their annoyance about being able to see this happen, are you concerned about what can happen as we go forward?
JIM FURYK: I guess you can't -- you can't have it both ways. You can't ask for a few people to come to the game of golf. You can't ask for 50, 60, 70, 80 thousand fans to come to a golf tournament, the purse is to go up, sponsors asked for more money and then ask the fans to be that quiet. You can't ask for everyone to come out and generate the revenue and expect them not to make some noise and cheer. I don't think what they said was -- or did was a terrible thing. They are just expressing some emotion. I didn't hear anyone swearing or cussing or any extremely bad remarks pointed toward Scott or I. I have no problem with the expression of emotion out there. Golf is a growing game. We are playing for extremely big purchases. We of drawn a lot. Tiger is one of the biggest reasons. We have drawn younger people to the game, they are used to watching football, basketball, baseball making noises, because they come watch us. We make a better living. You can't ask them to come out and watch and be quiet. The game is learned and the etiqutte is learned but people want to come out and make noise and cheer when you make a birdie, there is nothing wrong with that.
Q. Are nerves as much of a factor in those little delicate shots as they are the approach shot at 18?
JIM FURYK: I think in all aspects of the game. In all aspects of the game are affected. In the situation like I was in. You got to hit the shot or you are not going to win the golf tournament. It's kind of a do or die, sometimes that makes it easier. You can go for broke. If you hit a bad shot you hit a bad shot. It's not like if I dump it and leave it shorted and make 6 it it's going to leave me another shot. It's either 4 or nothing. I have to hope for Scott to miss his shot.
Q. The 2 chips that you and Scott had to make, the 2 up and downs on 18 in regulation you had to do on a playoff hole, Scott driving into the foot print on one (Inaudible) --
have you ever had a weirder 45 minutes or an hour on the golf course?
JIM FURYK: There was a lot going on. I didn't realize that he drove it into a footprint. Probably someans walking out there or something that stepped in there. Or possibly a pro hat didn't rake the bunker. Probably some people walking through there.
Q. Slugger said the bunkers had been raked before you guys got out there, and right before you got to the tee someone walked through it, a little kid?
JIM FURYK: It's a bad break, he had a good shot out of there, and a good wedge.
Q. Another strange set of circumstances?
JIM FURYK: It's strange. The whole day, the whole finish, the first 18 holes were fine, from there on out it was a strange day.
Q. You said that you were hoping to speak to David Duval. Did you connect yet?
JIM FURYK: I phoned him last night. He is seeing a doctor here in town. I gave him the name of a doctor that I saw back in Jacksonville and just wanted to tell him that I was concerned and hoped he felt better and asked him some questions to see how he was doing. He thanked me for the call and thought that he was getting some good care here and would keep it in mind. I'm hoping that he feels a lot better. It's strange, we live in the same home town, I see him more on the road than I do at home. He is a friend. I want to see him healthy.
Q. Scott said on the third shot second playoff hole he was having difficulty but he did it anyway. If he would have said I can't see at that point would you have been comfortable with that?
JIM FURYK: Sure. I told you over my wedge shot without even hearing I didn't know he said that. Without hearing, I was thinking over my wedge, I gripped the club and looked down at the ball and looking at the lie I said geez, it's getting dark out here quick, this hole will be it for sure. Then it started closing in on us.
JOHN BUSH: Thanks for coming by. Good luck in the morning.
