Tiger Woods Putt at 2008 US Open to Force PlayoffJune 15, 2008 9:31 pm stories
Tiger Woods holed a huge putt on the 18th hole at Torrey Pines at the 2008 US Open to force a 18-hole playoff with Rocco Mediate. The putt looked like it was about 10-12 feet and slightly down hill. Rocco Mediate could only watch from the clubhouse as Tiger stalked the putt, walking around the green and viewing the line from multiple angles.
After analyzing the putt and the line, Tiger stepped up to the ball. I just had a feeling he would make it as he struck the ball. The ball was on the correct line and even bounced a few times (because of the bumpy greens) before it rolled in. Amazing. Tiger gave the double fist pump and high-fived his caddie and close friend, Steve Williams.
Rocco Mediate said afterwards that he knew Tiger would make the putt. Tomorrow should be really interesting, as Mediate and Woods will battle it out in an 18-hole playoff that will decide the winner of the 2008 US Open. Here’s the video of the putt.
As a reminder to golfers, it’s recommended that you were suncreen with an spf of at least 15 if you’re going to be in the sun all day playing.
