Poker Player Rocco Mediate Guns for U.S. Open Golf Title

Rocco Mediate at thee 2008 WSOP

When we first met poker player Rocco Mediate at the 2005 WSOP Main Event, we told him, "Son, you're a good poker player. But if you really put your mind to it, you could be a world champion golfer. Work on your game for a few years and then give 'em hell in 2008!"

Mediate, 45, apparently took our advice* and will play the Phil Ivey of golf, Tiger Woods, for the U.S. Open championship.

While a U.S. Open title isn't as tough as Erick Lindgren's golf prop bet last year or have the drama of Patrik Antonius and Daniel Negreanu's battle last week, we here it's still moderately prestigous.

The two will tee off at 9am PST. Get full chip counts here.

* And by "advice" we mean we said, "Hi, good to meet you..." which is closer to the real conversation we had.
