    What is up with this commentary? How can you have such little class to talk about someone like that? Especially on live tv when he’s doing great? You dog on the man who’s just taken the greatest golfer ever to a playoff for the us open? Embarrassing.

    Rocco Mediate! You are what you think you are. If you're a normal player, you'll just be normal. Set your goals higher and believe you'll win a major. You just might. You're a cool dude and class act regardless.

    For those born after 2000 it is nearly impossible to explain how magnetizing it was to watch Tiger every single tournament he played in. If I remember correctly he twice won 8 straight tournaments that he entered. Every single major he won or contended in was must see tv and most every other tournament as well. I cant count how many people I knew that had never picked up a club that would tune in just to watch Tiger.

    ..Johnny I hope you read this pal. Why do you have to be such an ass? Your egotistical commentary is more of a distraction than anything. For a guy who was consistently two clubs shorter than the average pro how about showing at least a hint of humility? Yeah I know..fat chance...smh

    How you win a Major in the PGA with one leg is beyond me! Tiger is the most dominant athlete in sports history, I say that because you need to take into factor how hard golf is and how hard these courses are.

    I don't think we've ever had a better "loser" than Rocco. Wish we had gotten a lot more Rocco than we got. You could tell Rocco's main swing thought on that putt for birdie on the 18th was "don't leave it short". But can you blame him? The way he told his wife that the questions have to happen, he gets it. He gets it like few do.

    Rocco just enjoyed the experience. In the grand scheme of things, Rocco got to play along side the highest ranked golfer in the world, on the biggest stage in the game, and had the opportunity to snag the US Open title. That's what life is all about.

    This may be a stupid question, but on the last shot, I know Rocco took 5 shots to the hole and Tiger was on the fourth shot with just centimeters away from the hole. but still doesn't he needs to put the ball into the hole to affirm that victory???
