When Tiger Woods missed an inconsequential par putt on the final green Sunday, it was a microcosm of his entire day. The man with the nerves of steel saw his putter turn to mush.
Y.E. Yang did more than win the PGA Championship on Sunday. He also earned his first trip to the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda, where he will be joined by the winners of the other three majors.
