Is anyone else watching this? Tiger Woods vs. Rocco Mediate in a full 18-hole playoff. They're at the 18th hole now. Amazing.
that's GREAT anotation and I really appreciate it!Tiger was up 3 with about 9 to play and had 2 bogey's in a row and then Rocco came back and cleaned up. Both ended at even par on the 18th.
Tiger had 2 putts stop on the lip on the 16th, I believe, and the 18th that would have tied and won the match respectively.
Rocco's tee shot on the 7th (first playoff hole) bunkers and his sand-shot ends up just shy of the gallery. He gets a free drop and gets on the green but miles away. Tiger on the green in 2, but well below the hole and tough shot. He 2-putts, Rocco misses his par attempt and Tiger wins.
Rocco had some unbelievable putts all game long but Tiger perseveres after Rocco chokes on the 18th.
Best Golfer, no doubt.
Best athlete? I doubt it.
my opinion is he is not the best athlete, he is the very best cpmpetitor who ever lived playing golfA lot of people consider the idea that he is.
...or Google "Tiger Woods greatest athlete"
Of course it's an objective thing so everyone will have an opinion, but I think there is a legitimate argument considering what he has accomplished.
