Rocco Mediate in a zone...he leads the Frys.com Open by 3 heading into Sunday's final round
He hasn't won on the PGA Tour since 2002, but gained folk hero status with his epic U.S. Open battle with Tiger Woods at Torrey Pines. Rocco Mediate took Tiger to the limit, and despite losing by a shot on the extra day playoff, his fun loving, engaging personality shined. That same attitude and game has been on display this week at the Frys.com Open at CordeValle. At 17 under par after today's 67, Mediate's nearest challenger is Bo Van Pelt 3 back with a pair of other pros 5 shots off Rocco's pace.
