U.S. Open: Tiger forces an overtime.
Tiger Woods gave the golf fans another classic moment yesterday for the U.S. Open played at the Torrey Pines club.
After being down a few strokes on the leader all day long during the final round of the tournament, Woods was a single stroke away from a tie with leader Rocco Mediate at the 18th hole. On a long twelve foot putt for a birdie and a tie, Tiger sent the ball in the hole and forced the presentation an extra round that will be played today.
Before the start of the tournament, Tiger Woods had issues about the condition of his knee as he missed action for the last two months. He will gladly play an extra one now as he didn't look bothered by it at all.
Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate are going to play head to head in a classic showdown this afternoon. A major title is in the balance and I expect a great battle from those two players.
