Special US Open Playoff-inspired golf posting

In honour of today's US Open 18-hole playoff between Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate I bring you a special all-golf posting. [Side note: Rocco has one of the best names in golf, not the least because former TSN anchor Brendan Connor once called him "Rocco Meh-die-a-tie". Les Nessman must have been proud.]

1. Tiger Woods is an inspiration to us all. He is a medical marvel, a great golfer, the world's most important human and, perhaps, Batman. I loved the comment about his dad in the Responses section. Too funny.

2. TIME Magazine looks at golf fashion over the years. There are some good pics here, but I think they could have done better.

3. And lest we get bogged down focusing on the professionals, awesome urologist Floyd Seskin has come up with an invention so ingenius, yet so simple, that it makes me wonder why I didn't invent it. This is a new club for the weekend hacker and low handicapper alike. No, not another $600 driver with a club head the size of a toaster, this club might even be more useful for those boys' golf days/trips. As per their product tag line it is, "The only club in your bag guaranteed to keep you out of the woods!" You can buy one here.
