Rocco Mediate prepares for his ninth playing of the Barracuda Championship in Reno, Nevada, and first since a missed cut in 2012. UPDATE: Mediate totaled 25 points (7 points, 6, 7, 5) and is currently T20 on the leaderboard, his first paycheck on the PGA TOUR since T43 at the McGladrey in October, 2012.
The 53-year-old is making his first PGA TOUR start this season and just his fifth overall since his last full season on TOUR in 2012. He's a six-time TOUR winner in 642 career events, most recently at the 2010 Frys.com Open. The Pennsylvania native is probably best remembered for his playoff loss to Tiger Woods at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. He's 12-for-12 this season on the PGA TOUR Champions and ranks 10th on the money list with two top 10s, including last month's three-shot win at the PGA Senior Championship after rounds of 62-66-71-66. Mediate is 3-for-8 in Reno with one top 25, a T9 in 2009. Wed, Jun 29, 2016 11:00:00 AM
