Career

Mediate's golfing career has been dogged by back trouble. Early on, he compensated by using a long putter.[1] In 1991 he became the first player to win on the PGA Tour using a long putter when he won the Doral-Ryder Open. He picked up another victory at the 1993 KMart Greater Greensboro Open, but he then had a long layoff due to a ruptured disk. He underwent major back surgery in 1999, but lost practically five years of his career. Back pain returned in 2004 and later nearly ended his career.[2] The PGA Tour is an organization that operates the USAs main professional golf tours. ...

Mediate returned to the Tour in 1996 playing under a special medical extension and performed steadily. He picked up wins on the Tour in 1999, 2000 and 2002. After improving his fitness to minimize his back problems, he returned to using a conventional putter in 2003.


Mediate has been featured in the top 20 of the Official World Golf Rankings and considered to be one of the best putters in golf. At the 2006 Masters, Mediate was in contention to win the event on the final day until he took a septuple-bogey ten on the par three 12th hole. His best finish in a major championship was a second place showing at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines South Course. Tied with Tiger Woods at -1 after regular tournament play, then tied again at even par through 18 playoff holes, Woods finally bested Mediate on the first hole (number 7) of sudden death. It was only the third time a U.S. Open playoff had gone to sudden death. Mediate's performance at the U.S. open gained him 111 spots in the world golf rankings, moving him from 158th to 47th place.

Mediate and Woods played 18 holes in even par to force sudden death, where Mediate failed to convert on a 20-foot par putt on the first extra hole (#7) to extend the match.
The London bookmakers have Mediate at 3 to 1 in Monday's playoff, but that is much better than the 300 to 1 odds that he opened up at in the start of the week.
Mediate held the lead for most of the second round and he was able to expand the lead to three strokes with a birdie at the 10th hole.
