Notah Begay III walked quickly up the hill from the 18th green Monday at the TPC at River Highlands. He was done with his practice round and had one thing on his mind.
"I want to watch the tournament," he told reporters. He quickly perched himself in the players' dining room and watched the end of the U.S. Open playoff, with some nerves and some body english and some smiles, as his old buddy Tiger Woods did what Tiger Woods usually does.
"My wife was giving me updates all day" by text message, Begay said after his Stanford teammate won out in San Diego, Calif., about 3,000 miles away. "She was on the computer. She kept telling me what was going on."
He grabbed a seat with a good view of the television as Woods and Rocco Mediate — who withdrew from the Travelers Championship later in the afternoon — came up the 17th fairway. So, he saw two complete holes, including Woods' victory on the 19th; he planned a Monday-night call to congratulate the champion.
