Champions need to handle victory as well as defeat. Furyk was able to have a solid year in 2012 despite a late collapse at the U.S. Open — where he led after 36 and 54 holes.

"It's done with. It's gone," he said of the ones that got away. "I get upset about it, but I think of a lot of major championships I had the opportunity to win and I was just that close and didn't get over the hump. The tough ones bother you for a week or two, or me at least, and then it's gone.

"By the time I show up to play the next event, it's out of my system or it's really not worth showing up."

Furyk said it was essential to realize that there's nothing that can be done about a failure like his one bad hole a year ago at the Bridgestone.

"The way I look at it really is last year was last year," he said. "I'll never get it back and there's no sense in really dwelling on it. I got it out of my system and thought about how I could have handled the situation better and how I could have played that hole better."

At 4-under 136, Furyk was tied for sixth, nine back of Woods.


ONE TOURNAMENT AT A TIME: With the PGA Championship at Oak Hill looming next week, no one would blame a player out of contention in Akron for thinking ahead to the final major championship of the year.

But Angel Cabrera doesn't buy it.

Asked if there is ever a point in the final round of a tournament the week before a major if he starts preparing instead of playing the course in front of him, he answered with a question.

"Por que?" he said. Why?

Through his manager, the 43-year-old Argentinian added, "No, no. I'm playing THIS week. I'm playing THIS tournament. I'm focusing on THIS tournament. I'm not thinking about the PGA."

Yet Rickie Fowler says there are times when a pro might also be tuning up for the next stop while he's playing off the pace in another event.

"There's definitely times where you're going on the back nine and you're basically out of the tournament," he said. "Obviously, you want to play well at any point. But sometimes you're struggling, you come down to the last few holes and maybe you're seven (shots) back with four (holes) to play. You're kind of out of the tournament. You obviously want to finish strong, but that's a point where you're able to maybe try to get into a little bit of a rhythm, get things going and make some good swings to get ready for the following week."


CREATURE OF HABIT: Bradley says he's been following the same menu as he did last year in winning the Bridgestone.

"I've been eating at the same place every day, like I did last year," he said with a smile. "It's good memories here."

He said he didn't order the same meal every day.
