Ooooo - going... going... goneeeeeee!

Just watched Angel Cabrera make some magic to hold off Furyk and Woods, and become the first Argentinian to win the US Open... and the Oakmont Country Club undoubtedly provided some of toughest greens in golfing history for him to work off of!

As I watched Tiger chip away assiduously to make par all through the back 9... up to that must-make birdie at the 18th, I (and almost everyone else watching, I am sure) kept hoping for a miracle... A miracle which, this time around, just didn't come! It appears that whether we want to believe it or not, Tiger is a mere mortal after all! Hehe. :)

But our collective hope for a miracle was not unfounded - anyone who's seen Woods do what his did in 2005 at The Masters in Augusta, GA can't help but expect just a little more of that every time he walks onto the green... Kinda like how we expected Sachin, once upon a time, to hit a century every time he set his foot upon the pitch! If you weren't lucky enough to have watched live what I am talking about, check out the video below... As a little background - Tiger was 29 then... hoping to win his 4th Masters, and 11th major... and man, was he great! Here's hoping he serves up a ton more of the same!
