Monday, the clear favorite is Tiger. I hope Rocco has the day of his life going toe to toe against Tiger because thats what its going to take to hoist the trophy. Should be fun to watch, I'm pullin for the Huge underdog (but it's just like any other day of match play golf, one hole at a time, and Rocco did put together a better round score wise than Tiger today, can he do it twice...?)...go Rocco!
I'm pulling for Tiger. I'm not one to be enamored by star athletes, but Tiger is an exception.

Rocco had a very good round, with an excellent short game, but my god did he miss some puts. He had multiple opportunities to put the tourney away on the back nine and didn't. I think with Tiger's knee, a full 18 hole playoff benefits Rocco.

I think that Tiger will take it to Rocco today. What a great tournament and kudos to the USGA for setting up a tough, yet very fair golf course this year. Good golf, great course and great crowds made this one a great tourney.

Re: 108th US Open at Torrey Pines

While I'd never bet money against Tiger I think today if Rocco can keep up his play and not fold in the moment he beats Tiger. I just think Tiger's luck (which making those long Eagle putts took skill it also takes Luck) will run out in his round today. Rocco has played more conssitant than Tiger and that is what it takes to win the US open. How many people knew that Tiger's last putt on 18 Sunday was going to drop? I did!

Re: 108th US Open at Torrey Pines

Tiger's comeback was exciting to watch. He had bad luck on the putt on 16 or 17, when it was heading in and hit something, making it go left. Without that, it would've been a championship-winning shot on 18.

Usually, when someone wins constantly, a lot of people including myself roots for them to lose. It's not like that with Tiger. It's hard to root against him.

Hopefully, he'll hit a fairway on Hole 1 today. He has 3 double bogeys and a birdie on 1 this tournament.

He's going to win this U.S. Open on one leg. Even with a bum knee, he's better than everyone else in the world.

Did you watch it? THIS round of golf was VERY exciting. Even my wife, who usually has the "golf is so boring to watch" attitude, watched the end of this one with me.

Anyone else see that Nike ad with all the old footage of Tiger of his father? Earl (his Dad) talks about his mental toughness. Pretty awesome stuff.

Well you could also say that his cip that bounced up a couple of feet and hit the flag pole and feel straight down into the hole was just lucky. I know he did and its always a little luck when things are this tight in a match. When a players wins by 4 or more strokes it takes the luck out of the picture.

Yea, I saw that. Earl said nobody EVER would be more mentally focused/tough than Tiger.......pretty good assessment.

Should be a good back nine Rocco is down by 2. He better kick it in high gear!

Re: 108th US Open at Torrey Pines

The announcers both on ESPN earlier and on NBC now are so flagrantly cheering for Rocco. It's pretty amusing. Rocco and Tiger are tied right now, and they just said Rocco has him on the ropes. ????

I don't think they are cheering Rocco any more then Tiger they just are happy that Tiger did not start to walk away with this when he was up by 3. Now Rocco has a one stroke lead and they are cheering for Tiger.
