CHASKA, Minn. (AP) — Y.E. Yang won his first major title at the PGA Championship today, and he took down Tiger Woods to do it. The South Korean finished at 8-under 283, three strokes ahead of Woods. Yang is the first Asian player to win a major.
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.
