Video: Y.E. Yang Clutch Eagle on 14 to Win PGA Championship
You heard all the headlines: Tiger Woods is unbeatable when leading a major after 54 holes. Start engraving his name in the Wanamaker trophy already — no point letting things play out because Tiger wins and everyone else folds. Not the case on Sunday with Y.E. Yang, who actually had the balls to step up and challenge Woods, despite being down by two strokes entering Sunday. If there was a turning point that helped Yang win the PGA Championship, it was this eagle on 14:
Man, he nailed that chip in the clutch and that eagle made him -8 for the tournament, a stroke up on Tiger Woods. Yang didn’t fold over the next four holes, and he didn’t fold after missing a putt on 17 that could have given him a two-shot lead. The best part is someone stood up to Woods and won a major going heads-up against him. I can only hope this gives other golfers confidence entering future tournaments knowing Woods is mortal. As for Tiger, putting was his problem the entire round. He’ll definitely be back.
