Like 99% of the world, I fully expected to watch Tiger Woods cakewalk to his 15th major today. The only problem was that no one told South Korean Y.E. Yang!

That guy played some amazing shots out there. The chip-in eagle on 14 to take the lead was impressive, but the approach shot he hit on 18 (over a tree, with a 3-Hybrid) to ten feet was pure guts.

Odd to see Tiger burn the edges of so many holes, but it made for an exciting afternoon in the PGA Championship.

Why couldn't Tom Watson have hit his approach into 18 like that??

That was certainly the unexpected, once Harrington went all Roy McEvoy on that par 3, it looked like a clear path, once the "back 9 on a major Sunday" pressure got to Yang, but he never folded. A great boon to Asian golf, I'm sure.

Although for watching purposes, it might have been nice if someone could have made a putt on those greens today. Watching the leaders try to par their way around to win is what you expect in a US Open, seemed that all the heroics for this championship came Saturday.

It seemed like the two of them switched bodies. Yang was the one making the Tiger-esque clutch putts, close saves from bunkers and uber-shots (the chip-in, the great approach shot on 18) to deflate the opposition, and Tiger was the one who couldn't make a putt to save his life and got a bunch of bad bounces in and around the greens.

Angel Cabrera, Lucas Glover, Stewart Cink and Y.E. Yang. If you went to Vegas on these four being your major champions of 2009, you're a billionaire today.

Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

I thought that finish was BETTER than Sunday's - flipping 99 car or not. At least we KNEW everyone was OK when the Nationwide race was over.
