Doc, I was exhausted just watching it, and I don't think I ever left my seat. I'm a Tiger fan and glad he won, but would not have been heartbroken had Rocko pulled it out. To have that stamina, not to mention still maintaining the love of the game at 45 years old is impressive as hell. Agree, best Open I ever watched.
I agree tigers up there with Nicklaus, Palmer, Hogan. One of the greats. My problem is that there's a lot of other great golfers out there who just seem to fade at the shear mention of tigers name. He deserves all of his acolades but would like to see others just step up occasionally, like Mediate. As an aside I've seen Tiger 6 times in person and he never ceases to amaze me (first time, hit a 650 yard par 5 in 2).
The debate will go on as to whether or not Tiger is the best golfer of all time. But in my mind there is no debate as to who is the best clutch putter of all time. No one has ever had the ability to make a putt like he has. Like Rocco said about Tiger's 12 footer to tie: "I knew he was going to make it."
