US Open: Tiger Wins
Like I said below, what else can you say that hasn’t been said about Tiger Woods. Again, he relied on some 18th-hole magic to get the tournament to a sudden-death scenario. Woods then defeated Rocco Mediate on the first hole of said playoff. Over the coming days, much will be written about Tiger’s performance, his knee and his continued assault on Jack Nicklaus’ all-time Majors record, and rightfully so.
What I’ll remember, along with the fist pumps and Saturday’s ending is Tiger’s perseverance after his knee continued to buckle on him during the weekend. Remember, he’s out there hitting 300-plus bombs on a bad knee, folks… One that recently went under the knife. Astounding.
For Woods, who just called this victory the greatest championship he’s ever had, it’s Major number 14 and his third US Open.
Does anyone want to speculate on where he’ll finish up on the all-time Majors list? I say 23. We’ll be back with much more about Tiger’s victory tomorrow.
