Golf.com's tee-to-tee coverage of the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black includes Damon Hack's reflection on the 17th hole at the 2002 event:
The gallery was buzzing when Tiger Woods appeared. He hit a six-iron, but I lost his ball in the sky. Then, like magic, it dropped within eight feet of the pin, and another roar brought the goose bumps back. This was different from the cheering for Mickelson. Phil's was a from-the-gut scream for an underdog. Tiger's was the acknowledgement of genius—as if Frank Sinatra had walked into your local bar and started singing Summer Wind.
