Professional golfers are generally a conservative lot -- after all, they're the ultimate "country-club types" -- so it was surprising to see Rocco Mediate's belt buckle on Sunday: a peace sign.
Was it a protest against the war? A remnant of a secret hippie past? A good-luck charm for the serious poker player? After the even-par round he shot to get into Monday's 18-hole playoff with Tiger Woods, the normally talkative Rocco wasn't saying.
"I'm not talking about the peace sign," Rocco joked when he entered the media interview room. "Tomorrow I'm wearing Metallica or AC/DC. We can't have any peace tomorrow." Photo: Al Tielemans/SI
