2002 Open Gets Highest Rating

June 18, 2002|From Associated Press

NEW YORK — Tiger Woods' victory at the U.S. Open on Sunday delivered the highest overnight television ratings for the second of golf's Grand Slam events.

Woods' riveting victory by three shots over Phil Mickelson at the Bethpage Black course in Farmingdale, N.Y., was seen in more than 9 million homes and had a record 9.3 rating and a 21 share for NBC.

The rating, a 33% increase over last year's U.S. Open won by Retief Goosen, was the highest for the U.S. Open since Nielsen Media Research began tracking overnights in 1975.
