Y.E. Yang overtakes Tiger Woods to win PGA of America championship.

Woods had been leading through the 54th hole. Yang played well consistantly (with the exception of one bogey, on a hole that Woods also bogeyed), and gained on Woods when Woods uncharacteristically missed a number of putts.

Yang is from Seoul, South Korea, and his excellence and victory will be a cause for celebration. Golf is VERY popular in Asia.

I'm not sure if the commentator said this is the first Major victory by an Asian, or the first in recent memory.

Tiger Woods is an immensely talented golfer who has shown a great work ethic and a wonderful balance in his life. (I admire the fact that he took off some extra time to be with his family when he was not actively playing.)

I don't think Mr. Woods has ever suffered such a reversal as this, before. One poor day (Poor! As if any of us could come close to what Tiger can do on a BAD day for him!) cost him so much. But, I'm sure he will bounce back. Every day can't be an above-average day for anyone's personal average.:)

Congratulations to Mr. Yang. doffs_cap
