14-0

It looked different for a moment on the back nine in Southern California this afternoon. Tiger Woods, the man who never blinks, kept finding trouble. A three shot lead evaporated into a draw in just four holes. With all the momentum at the right time, Rocco Mediate had the U.S. Open wrapped up.

 

And then Tiger Woods won a major championship. Again. Does it ever get boring?

 

Down by a stroke on the 18th fairway, Woods nailed a birdie putt to send the playoff into an extra hole. Mediate had plenty of chances all afternoon long, but couldn’t put Tiger away. If you leave the best athlete on the planet with one extra bullet in the chamber, prepare to end up a loser in sudden death.

 

Mediate found the crowd with his approach shot while Tiger played it safe.

 

Advantage: Woods.

 

Again.
