Quick Quotes

Q. So your emotions at this point?


Q. What are you most disappointed about?

WILSON FURR: I don't know. I played good. I was bogey-free 3-under through 18 and hit a great drive in the playoff and hit it right where I was looking at the exact club, exact shot I was looking at, thought it was a foot, and I walked up there and I was 60 yards down the hill, and I guess it had landed on the front edge or something and spun off. I'm still not sure. But I thought it was -- I thought I had won the match on a shot and I ended up losing it on it, so I don't even know what to say.

Q. What kind of club did you have?

WILSON FURR: I had 132 and hit pitching wedge, and it was a perfect number, I had it three holes before, a couple holes before. It was perfect. But I don't know, I'm not sure.

Q. You had to battle back today and you did. What turned as you turned for home, you kicked it into gear. What was going on?

WILSON FURR: I mean, I just made all pars on the first eight holes, just wasn't making any putts and made a nice putt on 9, nice putt on 10 to get it back to even and then birdied the par-5, 13, and then just -- I don't know, just somehow lost.

Q. How did you birdie 13?

WILSON FURR: I hit it to 20 feet for eagle, two-putted.

Q. At that point did you feel like you had steadied the ship?

WILSON FURR: I guess so. I was playing solid all day, so I didn't really ever feel like I was out of it. Played solid up until there.

Q. I saw 18, you looked like you were in pretty good shape in two --

WILSON FURR: Yeah, I didn't know whether to play it off the left slope or try to land it on the front edge. So I went for the front edge shot, like a high one on the front edge and I landed about four or five yards short, not a great shot. Obviously he two-putted, made birdie. Props to him.

Q. Obviously disappointed now, but what will you take away from this whole experience?

WILSON FURR: I learned a lot about my game for sure, but I'm going to be disappointed. It's going to sting.
