2008 U.S. Open Result: Tiger Woods is the winner The 2008 U.S. Open is finally over, the winner is Tiger Woods, after the playoff went into sudden death. All day people asked who won the U.S. Open and for hours we were nowhere near answering the question. The 18-hole playoff began with both players scoring a bogey, Rocco Mediate on the 1st hole and Tiger Woods on the 4th. Total of four bogeys and four birdies were exchanged during the U.S. Open playoff by each of the contenders and the result was an even 71. As per regulations, following the playoff and still no winner - the game went to "sudden death" - a hole-by-hole matchup. The first sudden death playoff was on the 7th (4 par) and Tiger Woods went for par, but when it was Mediate's turn - he fumbled and finished the first sudden-death playoff with a bogey, giving Tiger Woods the 2008 U.S. Open victory. The winner of the 2008 U.S. Open, Tiger Woods, was listed with odds 10/3 before the start of the tournament and -400 to win the playoff at the online bookmaker BodogSports; congratulations to all winners.
