We interviewed Rocco Mediate, a golf actor who finished it to a 2008 US Open opposite Tiger Woods. Here are his thoughts about that ancestral match. Following is a twin of a video.
It was a funnest time we have ever had personification golf in my life, was that Monday, with him.
Hi, we am Rocco Mediate, PGA Tour Champions Player and deputy for Osteo Bi-Flex.
So, 2008 United States Open, Torrey Pines, opposite Tiger Woods, a best player, substantially ever. That week we was personification good, we was personification good entrance in.
And Tiger came to a last, carrying to make birdie, strike a tee shot on a left bunker, laid it adult on a rough. we am examination a telecast. Everybody was like, “Oh, my god! we can’t trust you’re going to win a US Open.” we went, “I haven’t won anything yet. We are not done.” And Lee Westwood, who was personification with Tiger, was in a final organisation too, tied with Tiger. So they were both one behind.
Westwood missed. Tiger gets a shot. Another right rough, about 15 to 18 feet from a hole. And we remember my buddies around me said, “What do we think?” we said, “Well, we are personification tomorrow. He is creation a putt.” And he did. And afterwards we went to a playoff on Sunday. So we was kind of shocked, though not really.
Because we knew when we woke adult on Monday morning that we was going to kick him I knew it. Because we was improved by a atmosphere than he was. And a opens are won, mostly, from tee to green. He valid that week that some of them aren’t.
That was one of a coolest days of my whole life. we kick him by a air, senseless. we broken him physically by a air. But he kick me on a greens that day, and he wanted to spin it to a 19th hole. We had 30,000 people following dual people.
The 18th hole, that was a final hole of a day — we suspicion — was filled during 7 o’clock in a morning. We didn’t tee off until nine. So they were there for 6 to 7 hours. It wasn’t since we was in a match. It was since Tiger was personification another US Open. So am we disappointed?
I was unhappy to lose, though we wasn’t unhappy how we lost. It’s OK to get kick by someone who plays better. we am not endangered about that part.
