Tiger’s fang can’t take a bite out of Yang

“I did everything I needed to do today except get the ball in the hole.”

Tiger Woods

That about sums it up. Despite good ball striking, Tiger had 33 putts which isn’t good.

Y. E. Yang

I predicted a meltdown for someone in the last group today. I didn’t realize it would be Tiger, who shot 75. Y.E. Yang put on a ball striking clinic and displayed an incredible set of golf kahunas down the stretch.

The Shot

The approach shot Yang hit on the final hole was incredible.  His 3-hybrid from 200 yards nearly flew in the hole and finished within easy birdie range.  I never expected that quality shot and I almost fell out of my chair when he hit it.  Simply gosh yang amazing.

Frosty the snowman

Two major championship winners carded snowmen (8’s) on par threes today.  It was strange to watch Padraig Harrington and Angel Cabrera card 8’s on par threes.

Congratulations to Y.E. Yang for an incredible victory!
