US PGA Tour 2009 Winner Y.E.Yang wins $ 1.35 Million as Prize Money

Posted by celebrityphotosnews on August 17, 2009

It finally happened Sunday at the P.G.A. Championship, though Harrington, after another monumental disaster, was not the guy who broke the streak.

The unheralded South Korean Y. E. Yang became the first Asian-born player to win a men’s major golf championship. His final-round 70, two under par, put him eight under for the tournament and gave him a three-stroke victory over Woods (75) at Hazeltine National.

Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy tied for third at three under.

Yang, dressed head to toe in white — yes, even the belt and the shoes — took the lead from Woods, his playing partner, by holing out for an eagle on No. 14. Woods missed crucial putts all day and failed to make a charge over the final four holes.

Woods, a four-time P.G.A. champion, was two strokes ahead when the day started. He had never lost a major when leading or tied for the lead after three rounds.

Before Yang’s stunning shot, he and Woods had been tied three times. Both were six under at the turn. Woods nudged one shot ahead with a birdie on No. 11, a 606-yard par-5 that he reached in two and two-putted from 30 feet.

It rained some overnight, but the P.G.A. did not need its weather contingency plan. The first twosome of the final round was actually a onesome. Sean O’Hair went off on time Sunday morning at Hazeltine National, and blue skies and sunshine greeted the early groups as they played down the front nine.
