Major upset: Yang beats Woods for PGA title
CHASKA, Minn. - Y.E. Yang accomplished what was thought to be impossible — beat Tiger Woods on the final day of major.
With the help of a chip-in eagle on the par-4 14th and a birdie on 18, the South Korean finished with an 8-under 280 to beat Woods by three strokes in the 91st PGA Championship at Hazeltine National on Sunday.
It is only the second time Woods has lost when having the lead going into the final round on the PGA Tour, and the first time at a major. The world’s No. 1 player finishes the year without a major title for the first time in five years.
