Yang beats Tiger at the US PGA

August 17, 2009

Previously Tiger Woods is 14 from 14 wins in major titles when he had the lead in a major championship. But it wasn’t Harrington, Mickelson or Els who broke the trend but South Korean Y. E. Yang. He becomes the first Asian-born male to win a golf major. Woods made mistakes, but kept the pressure on, but Yang held firm. His round included a chip-in eagle on the 14th and a glorious fairway metal to 10 feet on the last to sink Tiger’s hopes (see these shots here).

Maybe it’s my Aussie nature but I love it when the underdog wins, as much as I admire Tiger as a player.

A couple of cool things: 1) No having foxtel, I could still follow the golf on twitter; 2) I’m posting this news before smh or cnn websites!
