Sure enough, Temple posted a picture Saturday night with his arm around Kim in the scoring area, big smiles on each of them.

"STAND UP MERION," he wrote.

The rest of his page is fan stuff — photos of Angel Cabrera and Adam Scott on the practice range.

Then a shot from behind and from a distance that says, "A little hard to see but that is Tiger." He posted the photo Wednesday.

Three days later, Temple just smiled when Woods walked right behind him on the way to the podium. And Temple thought the closest he'd get to the three-time Open champion was from somewhere in the gallery.

"I paid a good amount of money to go see Tiger for the week," he said, laughing. "Me and my buddies ponied up a decent amount of cash to see him."

Odds are, he'll make it back on the bag.

Temple, who looks a bit like Phillies slugger Ryan Howard, soaked up his moment at Merion.

"Can you tell us again ..." another wave of reporters asked, asking him to repeat some of his stories.

"I sure can tell you again," he said, retelling his life as Phillies batboy and Open pinch hitter.

"I want to represent for Merion," he said.

And he believed Kim can win.

"He's the show," Temple said. "I'm just along for the ride."
