Last week we asked you to send us the questions you wanted to ask Jim Furyk. GOLF Magazine editor at large Connell Barrett sat down with the world No. 3 near his home in Jacksonville, Fla. and put your questions to him. What did we learn? He wants to be Superman and no, he doesn't want to stay with you during a tournament.
Jim, my grandmother was your seventh grade English teacher, Mrs. Zwally. What lessons from school do you still apply to your life, on or off the course?

There's a very simple lesson: the harder you work, the more results you see. My dad was a hard worker, maybe to a fault. I think what was given to me is that if you go out there and work hard, you can achieve what you want. Just because you work hard today doesn't mean you're going to see the results tomorrow, but be patient, because eventually you will. As far as a golf lesson, I would come home and I'd tell my dad how I was doing. He wanted me to always check where I was lined up and the line the golf ball starts on. If you know where you're aiming, you can figure out a lot of your shots.
Back to grade school: can you remember when you got in the most trouble? Demerits, detention, anything like that?
That's your question! You don't get a follow-up! These are readers' questions.
