    Weren't nuthin boring about this Open. Draining 30ft snakes to stay in contention, playin injured, no-name cinderella story golfer going head to head with the best the game has ever seen in sudden death.......... INCREDIBLE

    Just like training an all-age dog, no one can appreciate golf until they've been humbled by trying to master it.

    Tiger proves once again that he is all that and then some. 91 holes on a bad knee and getting it done in the end. I felt bad for Rocco though, poor guy will not have that level of success again. He lives here and has been the big story all weekend long. In the end though he can’t feel too bad about going 91 holes and being beaten by the best golfer in the world by only one stroke. I don’t remember anyone getting that far with Tiger and Rocco could have lost it after the fist 8-9 holes but he hung tight. I don’t really watch golf but I watched the end of yesterday and all of today’s round

    I didn't know Shayne played golf until I saw this

    I do not play golf but I was glued to the TV this weekend, as was Florence, when we were not out training. She put off working the dogs today until after the finish. It was incredible drama.

    I was watching the MetLife blimp from my backyard and wondering why I did not attend. It is one of the very few major sporting events held in town that I have not attended including World Series games, NFL playoff games, NCAA finals, Golden Glove Championships, MLB All Star games, U.S. Ice Skating Championships, NBA Playoffs (when we had the Rockets). I partied in the parking lot for last Superbowl in San Diego. Lots of golf including the Buick Open and the Tournament of Champions.

    This Open will go down in history with the NCAA championship I attended where my team won with John Wooden coaching his last game.

    There was a lot of discussion in the gallery of the National Amateur today about the US Open. I wonder if folks at the US Open were talking about how many handled in the first series of the National Am? hehe

    Thanks to the good Dr Ed for the Tiger/Rocco updates today. I got back to my room/tv as fast as i could today.

    College World Series ain't to shabby either!

    Rocco is far from a nobody. But Yes it was by far one of the best five opens I have ever watched!

    When you're the best, your luck seems to be the best also. When Tiger got the Eagle on Sunday on the hole where he chipped in with ball hitting the flag stick was unreal. Even he couldn't believe it. As fast as that ball was going when it hit the flag stick, that Eagle could have easily been a par or bogey. He would have lost to Rocco, and never had the chance to beat him in the playoff.

    Yea. It's right up there with watching 100+ dogs run a double and a blind. Talk about exciting!
    About 25,000 people blew off work and went to watch the Open today. Proly twice that many at the National Amateur.

    I like 'em both regards,
