New National Post Column: Furyk on Canadian Open

My latest National Post golf column can be found here.

Here’s a taste:

Despite a gruelling schedule that will see him play eight out of nine tournaments over two months, Jim Furyk said his game will be strong when he attempts to defend his Canadian Open title in two weeks.

“Right now I’m getting prepped for the British Open, but I always have the Canadian Open in the back of my mind,” Furyk said from his Florida home yesterday.

Furyk won’t have a lot of time to collect his thoughts for the Canadian Open, which comes a the week after the British Open this year.

And the new US$10-million FedEx Cup, with an intensive four week playoff schedule in September, has made things much tougher for players.

“Usually golf is not as much a physical grind as a mental grind, but I think this nine-week stretch will be a physical grind too,” Furyk said.
