NYC Fans Tell Fred He Funked Up
After his round today (a one-over 71), local boy Fred Funk discussed the difference between New York and D.C. golf fans.
"Here, I hear 'Fear the Turtle!', and 'Go Fred!' and all that other stuff," Funk said. "And up at Bethpage, I hear, 'Hey, Funk you!' it's a little difference in the crowd. New York, D.C., they're not the same."
I wasn't sure if he was serious about the Funk You thing. He was.
"Oh yeah, absolutely," he said. "I heard it about 9,000 times. I hear it some other places, but in New York they were really going at it--'Hey, Funk You!' and then there's, 'Hey, you Funked up!' "
Funk is trying to compete for the Schwab Cup, as I'm sure you all realize, and this week is sort of a distraction to that chase, but he said he couldn't stay away.
"I wouldn't be here unless it was home," he said. "I always love coming home, and this area's really special to me, and Congressional's special, [but] more the area's special. I just love being a part of it, and I don't want to lose my roots here, and I don't want people to think that I don't remember I'm a Marylander."
