Recalling how he came into her life, Furyk said: “I walked off the green [after my round] and was goofing around with some kids and Tabitha caught my eye, so I said hello to her.
“I was a little shy about going up and talking to her.
“Then Ray (Tabitha’s Boss) came up to interview me. The whole while he was interviewing me I kind of positioned myself so that I could keep checking her out.
