Well, it isn’t a nail-biting conclusion driving an extra day of play in this year’s U.S. Open — it’s mother nature, as rain plagued the golf tournament this weekend. But it’s on these unexpected extra days of play that online video gets to shine.

Last year’s Monday U.S. Open finale generated millions of streams, though that was more about the drama of a heated race between Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate. The “other” U.S. Open (for tennis) was also rain delayed to a Monday last year, and pulled in 300,000 viewers.

Woods is seven behind going into the fourth round today, so some of the star wattage has dimmed (though to be honest, I don’t play golf so maybe that’s not so bad; correct me in the comments). But for golf fans stuck at work, they should turn their browsers to NBCSports.com for live coverage starting at 9 a.m. EDT (that’s 6 a.m. for us West Coasters). Or, if your ISP has aligned itself with ESPN360 (a touchy subject), you can check out coverage on ESPN360.com.
