Yes I am Covering Golf!!!
I am only covering the U.S. Open because the last round was awesome and Rocco Mediate is from Greensburg Pennsylvania (out town of Pittsburgh). Arnold Palmer, one of three players from Western Pennsylvania to win a U.S. Open, had some advice for Greensburg native Rocco Mediate in his 18-hole playoff today with Tiger Woods, the world's No. 1 player. DON'T GIVE UP! Thanks Arnold, I am sure that Rocco was thinking about giving up in a sudden death golf off for the U.S. Open Championship. Mediate, 45, a five-time winner on the PGA Tour, has never won a major championship. What's more, he would be the oldest champion in U.S. Open history if he manages to beat Woods in their 18-hole showdown at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, Calif. The final sudden death round is scheduled to start in about an hour. I will post the winner and then never speak "Golf Talk" again!
