SEEN AND HEARD

This dispatch is dedicated to the glory of Boo Weekley (67). Golf’s camo-clad quote machine creates a memorable moment every time he opens his mouth. Here are some of the best this week from country-come-to-Congo:

Boo’s greatest fear is “getting e’t up by a shark or a snake.”

His least favorite music is “anything that ain’t got no words.”

His dream woman is “Erica from ‘One Life to Live.’ ”

His most prized possession is “my guns.”

And the biggest celebrity on his speed dial is somebody named Cuz Strickland. Turns out that Mr. Ronnie “Cuz” Strickland is the senior vice president of Mossy Oak (the Ralph Lauren of camouflage apparel), perhaps the world’s most renowned turkey hunter and the author of classics like “The Truth About Spring Turkey Hunting According to ‘Cuz.’ ”

QUOTABLE

“I played this course on Tuesday for the first time, and it was about 6:45 in the morning, no adrenaline. … I didn’t really see where any birdies were out there, other than just a few holes.”

- Bryce Molder, who shot a 64 and birdied six of the first eight holes

BY THE NUMBERS

16 Pars in a row for Fred Funk during his round. After a double-bogey on the first hole, there were no squares or circles on the former Maryland golf coach’s card until a birdie on the 18th.

68.0 Scoring average for Anthony Kim in nine rounds at Congressional. He set the course record Thursday with a 62.
