As it’s turning out, this playoff isn’t as inevitable as originally thought.
Holding a lead after three holes, Rocco Mediate isn’t backing down yet to Tiger Woods. Mediate almost aced the 3rd, settling for birdie and a two shot swing with Woods.
On the 5th hole, Rocco found the cartpath (twice) and Woods once again took the lead.
Right now, Tiger sits at even par with Rocco just one shot back. As long as Mediate can stay within a couple shots at the turn, consider the game on for the two players left in the U.S. Open.
If Tiger makes a run late on the front nine, it’s all over.
