LIST THE THE UPSET Y.E. Yang vs Tiger Woods, 2009 PGA Championship Hazeltine National Golf Club, Minnesota REMEMBER THIS date. Sunday August 16, 2009. Why? It will go down in history as one of golf’s greatest upsets in golf. Korea’s Y.E Yang did what no one before him could: overrun Tiger Woods on the last day of a major and win. Until that fateful day Woods’s record was impeccable. Fourteen times he led a major into Sunday and 14 times he finished victorious. With that in mind the world watched and expected Tiger to march confidently to his 15th major win. But 37-year-old Yang had other ideas and the story that unfolded was far different. Starting the final round two shots adrift of Tiger, Yang took 13 holes to reel in the historically insurmountable Woods and then set about creating a little history of his own. At the short par-4, 14th Yang holed his pitch shot for an eagle. But it was the Korean’s approach on the 18th that defined his win—a laser- like 3-hybrid around a tree and over a bunker to 12 feet. Magical. He went on to win by three shots.
