Tommorow ESPN starts the coverage at noon EST, and NBC picks it up at 2.
Tiger gets an early 1-stroke lead, but Rocco's in much better position than Tiger now on the third, in position to get that stroke back and maybe another on top of it.
Notable because Rocco's played the first few holes much better than Tiger in the first four rounds.
DJ Trahan 4th place finisher, Clemson product.
But I would be happy if either one won .
Woods up by 2 after 7. i can't see Mediate coming back although there's a long way to go.
Only one now.
Anyone else amused at Rocco's choice of clothing?
Man, I thought Rocco had gotten a hole in one on that Par 3 early in the round.
Rocco's back within one. This is gripping television. Makes me glad I've got a home office.
I'm not a golf fan but I'm watching this. I think Tiger is going to take it unless he really screws up.
Rocco leading by one on the 17th... really exciting.
It's nail-chewing time...
Two gut wrenchingly close putts for Tiger that ended up just short ... but he's got a good approach on 18, and a good chance to at least birdie it.
This is really exciting, Mediate has played really well.
EDIT: HOLY **** WE'RE ON TO SUDDEN DEATH PEOPLE!
Tiger on the green in 2 on the par 5 18th... not particularly close, but he can 2-putt for a birdie and probably still tie it up.
EDIT: Nice approach by Mediate... he sinks that putt and he'll probably win.
EDIT2: And after 90 holes, we'll go to sudden death. Wow.
Holy ****, we are going to play more. Sudden death after 18 extra holes. this is awesome. Just awesome.
Yeah really. Whoever loses, they have nothing to be ashamed about. It's been a cracking game.
Wow. Just wow. Tiger is killing my productivity today. I'm gonna have to work double-strength tomorrow.
But, yeah, LAJ, the "loser" of this has nothing to hang their head about.
i wish i still had Sky.
or i wish this was on BBC.
or i wish i was in my new house with Sky.
91 holes. unbelievable.
this is awesome
Tiger on the fairway, Rocco in the bunker ... good advantage to Tiger here on #91.
Edit: And a worse second shot for Rocco ... Tiger should win here. I'd be shocked if he doesn't.
Big advantage to Tiger now. He doesn't have to be greedy, just play it safe and he'll have another major.
EDIT: and its finally over, and Tiger wins. What a performance for both of them. Incredible.
And he's one closer to Jack ... wow. That was gripping television.
Yeah - it held my attention even though I'm not really a golf fan. Congrats to Tiger, and to Rocco for doing so well against him.
unbelievable, amazing stuff from Tiger.
has that performance answered this thread?
i think he's the best.
When you consider that he was visibly in pain during every round, and hadn't even walked 18 holes since his surgery until the start Thursday... its just that much more impressive.
Agreed. I can't see anyone else in the history of the sport winning a major championship after taking off 8 weeks following surgery and not playing a single round of 18 between the surgery and the major championship.
