Rocco Anthony Mediate is an American professional golfer who has won six times on the PGA Tour and three times on the Champions Tour. In the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines South Course, he finished runner-up after losing the first sudden-death hole after an 18-hole playoff to Tiger Woods. In 2016, Mediate won the Senior PGA Championship, one of the five senior majors. In 1991 he became the first player to win on the PGA Tour using a long putter when he won the Doral-Ryder Open. In May 2016, Mediate won his first senior major championship at the Senior PGA Championship, with a three-stroke victory over the defending champion Colin Montgomerie. His winning total of 265 (−19) broke the previous record by three and was the first wire-to-wire victory at the event since Jack Nicklaus in 1991.
