Rocco Mediate the People's Champion; Tiger Woods exaggerates injury
If you had asked me of all the players I wanted to win the Open, I would have picked Mediate. He’s one of the genuinely nice guys on the tour, maybe the nicest. He’s about as regular a guy as you can get in that pampered universe.
Now they go head to head Monday in a playoff for the Open championship, after Woods sinks that tense putt on No. 18 to tie the Rock.
As for Woods, funny how he starts all that cringing and grimacing when he hits a bad shot. I’m not doubting the problem with the knee, it just seems awfully convenient how the knee acts up only on his bad shots.
He knows that this would be considered one of his greatest achievements, winning the U.S. Open limping like a one-legged man, and he’s playing it to the hilt.
By the way, how pathetic is it that no one besides Mediate and Lee Westwood can challenge Woods when he’s hurting? Why don’t they just tie his hands behind his back?
I predict Mediate by two strokes.

I am not implying Woods took a banned substance, I am just curious if the USGA is being vigilant in ensuring whatever was taken was legit.
Yeah he was totally making it up. The hate-on so many people have for Tiger really irritates me, and honestly I chalk it up to the color of his skin. Sure he isn't the most media friendly guy, but its not like every other player on the tour is either.
I think a lot of golfers out there wouldn't have even laced them up in Tiger's situation.
Do you think Tiger is a better golfer than you are a writer?
I think my grandma is a better golfer than you are a writer...ops ! She doesn't play but then again you don't
write....at least not well !!!
I find it Unbelievable that so many people want Mediate to win. I prefer to route for the guy who wears his pants UNDER his belly button for goodness sake.
What's despicable is that you, like so many intellectually bankrupt people, insist on playing the race card. Woods is one of the most loved sports figures in history, and most of his fans are white. However, like anyone -- and especially any highly successful person -- he will have his detractors. And deservedly so. If he wants people of discernment (as opposed to sheeple like you) to like him, he should clean up his language on the course and stop being a prima donna.
But today, I have to agree that Tim mcDonald is despicable. I would expect this comment from someone with Judge Smails history, but not one of the writers.
I understand you root for Rocco, you may dislike the media's take, or dislike Tiger himself and what he's accomplished. But I really dont UNDERSTAND not appreciating what he did today, in his circumstances. How many guys on tour COULD have had surgery, and won the first tournament back? Im sorry, he probably faked that entire surgery. lol.
It must still sting some of you when he wins.
Makes me feel like Snidely Whiplash.
I don't often agree with you, but as for Tiger's playacting concerning his knee operation of more than two months ago, you are absolutely correct.
Nine years ago, at the age of 55, I had arthroscopic knee surgery almost identical to that underwent by Woods. Thirty days after I was walking two miles or more everyday. After two months I jogged a 5K charity event with NO pain or even discomfort.
I am acquainted with several people who had similar surgery who think that Tiger was trying for an oscar with his grimacing.
The fawning announcers actually referred to Woods' surgery as an "injury." Ridiculous.

To call you "Snidely" would be a disservice to Snidely.
Season ending knee surgery.....dont worry he's probably exaggerating
What about Alex? I think we need to hear what Alex thinks about Tiger being out for the REST OF THE YEAR.
We not only witnessed the BEST U.S. Open, we also witnessed what "a heart of a Champion" means.
Now there's egg on your face! Tiger played with a stress fracture you dumb dumb. You need to write an apology blog entry! You are clueless!
Here's a large, black bird for you to have heaping portion of.
How do you like to eat your Crow?
What's that you say?.... I couldn't quite hear you with all those black feathers sticking out of your mouth.
You got to take care of your boys! They're your biggest supporters and I'm sure they love crow but let them take that shoe appetizer out first.
to take seriously.

So gracious when your own mistakes are clearly pointed out.
Read the Judge above.
Henceforth, he will be handling all matters pertaining to the relevant injury.
I grow weary of you Tiger zombie-worshippers.
