I like Furyk but good God his pre shot routine especially over putts has become ridiculous. Something has to change because I'm not sure I can watch 14 more holes of his snail's paced game.

furyk and crane should take a lesson from jb holmes who got tired of the tour telling him his slow play needed a speed boost..he is taking advice....i cannot remember who...i think a older pga guy...on changing his routine...i have not seen such a drastic change..not only is it faster...its almost too quick....not quite fowler quick..but almost.
and what did it do to his game? he is in contention more than ever.

furyk and crane etc..and their pre shot routines are agonizingly slow...

i can understand lining up his putts for that long
especially in the wind that is howling
but ALL of his shots?????

he should play with SNEDEKER
line up the shot
set up and bang
ball is on its way!!!

CHOI is on fire
and Furyk's swing is awful to watch but it works
and if it aint broke why fix it?

Do you think that Furyk will smile if he wins today? He always looks grumpy!

believe there was a lengthy rain delay so late start


as for Furyk.. he is very mechanical and that is his schtick....

I dont see him being put on the clock so slow but within the rules and very effective

Fluff is looking anchient these days. He can barely walk without the tour bag much less with it. Reminds me of Yoda.

No one is making a run. Hard to believe.

Goosen missed his putt on one hole and Furyk put his ball down I turned to the Lightning/Panther game watched a few seconds then a 40 second fight and the after math and then turned back to see Furyk taking his final practice stroke before he putted.....hurry the hell up..

The showed how he turned his putter grip upside down.
My question is what does he cover top of the shaft with if he had to cut the top of his grip?

When he goes through the whole thing...takes a practice swing...then backs off AGAIN...I feel like SCREAMING at the tv!!

I flipped repeatedly between the Tiger/Tilghman show and the last hole.

That was a S**** but who cares if you win I guess...?

What makes me crazy is you watch Furyk go through that ridiculously slow routine over a 2 footer and the man finally steps up as if to hit it, then stops, steps back and plumb bobs that midget 2' putt... crazy, it grates on the nerves.

Furyk is the reason I got a PVR.....always fast-forward through that ridiculous routine.

Got to love it when double digit handicappers offer up comments about slow play from professional players given their level of expertise. Perhaps if they took some time in preparation themselves, they would be able to lower their handicaps or stop their balls from going in the rubarb and then slowing play for every group behind them as they spend 5 minutes looking for their ball.

I'm not expert, but I'm not one to comment on a pro (other than Ben Crane) since I suck myself.

Double digit handicaps aren't double digit handicappers because they play too fast.... :D
