Rocco Mediate is best known in the golfing world for his candid personality and the epic 2008 duel at the US Open against Tiger Woods. Rocco is loved by fans because of his willingness to ink autographs and his continual attempts to overcome looming challenges that define his underdog status. Rocco’s latest set of challenges came not on the course, but from his body. In 2009, after dealing with chronic back problems, Rocco underwent knee surgery to his right knee. Earlier this year, Rocco dealt with painful tendon tears in his elbow by having a series of three Platelet-Rich Plasma injections (PRP).
