90 Holes? Not Enough

Rocco had a chance on 18 to win the 2008 U.S. Open, and his first ever major, but his birdie-putt never really had a chance.

The two came to 18, just as they did yesterday, with Rocco leading by one after he went birdie-birdie-birdie-par-par-par over the final six holes.

Tiger was, well, Tiger, sinking a putt to birdie 18 and force even more golf: we're now in a sudden-death playoff, starting on the 7th, a par-4. If needed, holes 8 and 1 will be used next.

Johnny Miller said it: "You are watching one of the greatest U.S. Open championships in history..."
