The countdown begins
We're less than two hours before the start of today's 188-hole playoff between Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate to decide the U.S. Open. Among the questions that will soon be answered:
How much does Tiger have left playing on a very bad knee?
Will Rocco still have the magic?
Can Rocco handle the pressure of going head to head with golf's best player?
Most "expert" feel Tiger will walk off with the prize and it'd hard to agrue otherwise. But if he's going to do that, he will need to win it with solid play because Rocco will not hand it to him.
I picked Tiger before the start and I will stick by it, but either way it's going to be a great story
