Another Tiger Woods victory in a major, amid the most testing of circumstances, would be one hell of a tale come the early hours of this morning.
The two eagles he manfully fired on the last six holes yesterday to secure an unlikely one-stroke lead going into the final day was genuinely sensational. Pure drama.
But what a story it would be if the seemingly impenetrable Tiger - for the first time in his career - failed to clinch a major when holding at least a share of the lead ahead of the final round...
And England's Lee Westwood, who will partner Woods in the final pairing of the tournament, nervelessly battled past Tiger to became the first British US Open winner since Tony Jacklin in 1970.
Whatever happens, one thing cannot be disputed.
The 2008 US Open at California's Torrey Pines has already witnessed some brilliant golf - and with more twist-and-turn sub-plots than a puzzle-breaking Dan Brown novel set in the alleyways of Florence.
So the main hope, surely, is that we get an epic final day to elevate this championship into the canon of golfing folklore.
"We're going to have a lot of fun out there," said the world number one back at the clubhouse last night. So are we Tiger, so are we.
Woods, Westwood, or one of the group biting at their heels?
