As the saying goes, “to the victor go the spoils,” and that couldn’t be more true for 2009 PGA Championship winner Y.E. Yang.  In the span of a week, Yang has gone from being ranked No. 110 in the world, to besting Tiger Woods at Hazeltine, to becoming a member of the Presidents Cup International Team. Y.E. Yang (Image: Zuma Press) With his improbable victory at the PGA Championship, Yang saw his world ranking  jump from No. 110 to No. 34, which put him as the ninth-highest ranked golfer not eligible for either the American Presidents Cup team or the European Ryder Cup team.  The Presidents Cup International team is made up of the top ten highest-ranked golfers not eligible for those two team.  With Yang’s... [Read more]

Tiger to Play First FedEx Playoff Event

With the heartbreaking loss in the PGA Championship still fresh in his mind, Tiger Woods today committed to playing next week at The Barclays, the first of the four playoff events for the FedEx Cup.  Woods has not played The Barclays since 2003, when the tournament was named the Buick Classic and held in June. He has also not played in the event since Barclays became the title sponsor, back in 2005. Tiger Woods (Image: Zuma Press) Tiger is a lock for the number one seeding heading into the four event playoff for the FedEx Cup.  This year a new points system is in place, whereby a player who chooses to skip one of the events will lose more ground in the title race.  Woods won the 2007 FedEx Cup despite missing the opening... [Read more]

10 Stunning Collapses in Major Tournaments

In the wake of Y.E. Yang’s improbable and stunning upset of Tiger Woods at the recent PGA Championship, there are more than a few golf fans who believe that Yang’s victory was a direct result of something Tiger rarely does…choke.  Whether you’re one of those who buy that (he did give back 2-strokes on the front nine, and needed 33 putts for the round), or you believe that it was Yang’s unflappable play against the world number one player (Woods shot 75 on Sunday, not 80) that accounted for the upset, either way, it’s over.  So, in order to ease Tiger’s pain, here’s ten of the worst collapses, or “chokes” if you will, in major tournament history. 10. Retief Goosen,... [Read more]

Daly Set to Return to Aussie Open

Much like a recovering alcoholic making amends with those they’ve wronged, John Daly is returning to an event where he had one of his more magnificent meltdowns, the Australian Open.  For those of you not familiar with Daly’s history at said event, the formerly rotund long-ball masher received a suspended fine at last year’s tournament, his punishment for taking a spectator’s camera and smashing it into a tree on the 9th hole at Royal Sydney. John Daly (Image: Zuma Press) But last year’s incident wasn’t the only transgression on Daly’s record while playing in Australia.  In 2002, at the Australian PGA Championships, Daly threw his putter and ball into a greenside pond following a triple-bogey... [Read more]

Yang Outduels Woods at PGA Championship

That collective gasp heard around the world from millions of golf fans was a response to something they’ve never witnessed in their life. Tiger Woods losing a major, on the final day, after having the outright lead.  Instead of the usual comparisons to Jack Nicklaus and his record 18 major victories, golf pundits can now sit and discuss whether Woods choked (he didn’t), whether he’s finished (he’s not), and how in the heck did he lose to Y.E. Yang (for that matter, who the heck is Y.E. Yang?).  At this moment, Yang is the winner of the 91st PGA Championship, after shooting the low round of the day to finish 8-under for the tournament, three strokes better than Woods.  Yang’s round of 70 was punctuated... [Read more]
