South Korean Yang Became Asia's First Male Major Winner U.S. PGA Championship

South Korean Yong Eun Yang, 37, became Asia's first male major winner after overhauling Tiger Woods in stunning fashion to clinch the U.S. PGA Championship by three shots Sunday.

"I had no idea Yong-eun was into golf when he was growing up," said Yang's father, an orange farmer on the resort island of Jeju, informs Reuters.

How appropriate that the first victory by an Asian male in one of the four major championships should come only a few days after the news that golf could be included at the 2016 Olympics. Yang’s victory can only mean the significant opening up of the game in areas such as Asia, just as golf’s readmission to the Games will surely herald the same thing.

It is hard to exaggerate the importance of the triumph by this short, strong yet powerful man who was born in Jeju-do, South Korea, reports Times Online.

Until Y.E. Yang did to Tiger Woods what Woods has done to a lot of Y.E. Yangs in his splendid career. Until Yang shot 70 in the final round and Woods bogeyed the last two holes and finished with 75. Until Yang made the final round of the 91st PGA into the biggest upset in golf history, at least since Frances Ouimet beat Harry Vardon and Ted Ray at Brookline a million years ago in what is now called "The Greatest Game Ever Played," New York Daily News informs.
