Rocco Mediate: ‘I Liked It When I Saw It’

Rocco Mediate: 'I Liked It When I Saw It' 1
ROCCO MEDIATE FIRED 63, 64 AND 64 to win the inaugural Shaw Charity Classic by seven strokes. Mediate’s 191 total tied a Champions Tour record for a 54-hole event. It was Mediate’s second win in 17 starts on the 50-and-over circuit. I guess you’d say he liked the Canyon Meadows Golf & Country Club, which is located in Calgary, Alberta.

“I liked it when I saw it,” Mediate said about the tree-lined layout. “It’s just that you’ve got to drive real straight. I like that feeling, not that I drove straight all the time, but most of the time I did.”

Tom Byrum finished second. Duffy Waldorf and Kirk Triplett tied for third.

Fred Couples closed with a 67 to tie for tenth. What did Freddie think?

“This is not a pitch and putt golf course. If you could just tone down Rocco, you’d have a hell of a tournament out there. There’s about 10 guys that could win.”

The key word being “could.”
