Several scribes had interesting viewpoints this morning on Tiger's left knee. Can he hold up over the next 54 holes (72 if there is a playoff)? Can he overcome the pain with his mental toughness? If Tiger Woods is somehow able to win his 14th major on one good leg, I don't know what that would say about everybody else in the field. But it would say everything about Tiger Woods. Hank Gola, from the New York Daily News: The telltale wince came after his drive on the final hole, the noticeable limp followed after his round. Tiger Woods may have made a statement Thursday that he plans to be in the middle of this tournament, but his hopes for a 13th major championship will hinge on a bad hinge that must absorb three more days of U.S. Open pounding. Thomas Bonk, from the Los Angeles Times: Woods grimaced after he ripped his drive at the 18th and even though the ball traveled almost 350 yards, he admitted his knee hurt."Didn't feel very good, no," Woods said. Jaime Diaz, from Golf World: No one but Woods knows how he feels, but to borrow a phrase from Billy Crystal's Fernando, it is better to look good than to feel good, and after one round at a course where he has taken home six trophies as a professional, Woods looks pretty good.
