Jim Furyk spoke yesterday about he sees the course setting up this weekend.
"It's getting firmer and faster and the ball is going farther off the tee because it. The ball is chasing. But we played in very similar wind conditions all week from Monday on. The wind's basically blowing from the west somewhere. Usually from the west, southwest, but it's blowing from that direction.
The golf course has played pretty similar. I'm maybe not hitting 3‑wood off some tees that I was hitting driver on Monday and Tuesday, and that could turn to hybrid later on in the week if it keeps baking out."
David Toms will enter the weekend with a share of the lead and he talked about the level of difficulty with the course this week.
"It will make you do some crazy things trying to hit shots to a front pin from 220 yards that you come up 30 or 40 yards short of the green but you know if you land it on the green you're going to be chipping from the back. So things like that will make you look kind of silly sometimes, but it is a fair test."
