Rocco Mediate sent shockwaves through the sports world when he forced Tiger Woods into a sudden death playoff in the 2008 US Open Championship. Having fought his way back from major back surgery and a subsequent downward spiral in form, Rocco Mediate had now matched the unbeaten world number one shot for shot in an explosive 4 day head-to-head.

In this intimate collaboration Rocco Mediate and John Feinstein look at Mediate's life through the prism of the 2008 season, giving readers an insider's view into how one man overcame it all to perform at the highest level. With interviews with Mediate, Woods and their peers Feinstein vividly renders one of golf's most historic days.
