    Really rooting for Furyk right now if for no other reason than that dirty swing.

    Give hacks like me hope.

    Keep in mind where Furyk is from and what NFL team he roots for... Hit they have their logo on only one side of their helmet.

    I am a fan of his and hated seeing him blow it.

    I have to admit I felt bad for Furyk those last couple holes. Nerves got to him and he hit some ugly shots... again

    Seems like every major has a different winner these days

    Yea, that chip out of the sand trap was pretty bad. I thought I was watching a video of me trying to get out of a bunker.

    Yes, I was a Furyk fan because he is from the Lancaster PA area, but changed when I found out his NFL allegiance. Yes, his chip was lousy.
    And I agree, having this tournament end late at night does kind of stink.

    I do enjoy watching golf late night. This was the case a few years ago at Pebble and at Torry Pines.

    I feel for Furyk though but you think someone like him who has won a US open and has had a successful career wont feel pressure like the younger players would. Actually Jim was one of the last players i would pick to have pressure affect him. He really blew it on 16. That tee shot was beyond terrible and he had been driving the ball well all week as well as making good 2nd shots. But he lost it on 16 and effecting him all the way to the clubhouse.

    Perfect storm.....there was no pressure on Simpson, who was always a few shots back, and too much pressure on Furyk. And there was Els who made a mental mistake and took a chance, and self-destructed. No way Simpson could have carried the lead around the course in my opinion.

    any of you guys watch Tiger win the Congressional? Passed Nicklaus in victories and was pretty cool and calm down the stretch. Impressive match

    No pressure on him there......its the Major that is a monkey on his back, but he is obviously going to get that too one day.
