The Monday playoff happened to be the same day I was required to show up for jury duty.

I arrived in the morning group and watched it, then later the administrators turned on some movie channel. Eventually some folks convinced the lady to change it to golf, once it came on. It played throughout the day, and it was awesome watching the playoff.
So, it just so happens that most of the group was still in the administration area watching the tournament when the afternoon group shows up. Tiger and Rocco are on the 18th tee of the playoff round, and Tiger needs to make up a stroke on the final hole. Literally seconds after Rocco tees off, the video cuts out, and the instructional video starts to play over it. At first everybody was shocked when the feed cut out, and then it turned to outrage that they turned on the instructional video for the afternoon group which had just arrived. A riot nearly broke out as several people were shouting at the lady to turn golf back on and play the video afterwards. She wouldn't do it, and some people were incredibly frustrated by it (as was I).
Eventually, after like 15 minutes of that incredibly annoying video, the feed comes back on, and if I remember correctly, Tiger was in the fairway of the sudden death hole, and the crowd roared in excitement as not only was the golf back on, but that meant Tiger had birdied the 18th to force a sudden death playoff. Then we got to see the finish, eventually. I'll never forget how that played out.
