Rocco Cuts Into Lead, Still Nobody Seems To Think He Has Any Shot

As they approached the 12th hole at Torrey Pines, Johnny Miller and Dan Hicks appeared down on Rocco's chances. He'd lost a shot on ten, gained it back on 11, but, still, seems completely out of this thing down by two shots with six to go against Tiger.

Rocco's disposition has changed; he's no longer the smiling, wise-cracking everyman, now he's just a man laboring through the final round waiting for a merciful death. Or is he? Tiger's second shot on 12 resulted in his first audible "Goddammit!" of the day and a disgusted club toss. Rocco saves par.

Rocco is one shot down after 12.

Here's Rocco during happier, less pressure-filled times at last year's World Series Of Poker.
