.E. Yang has given hope to "the rest of the golf world," said Jim Souhan in the Minneapolis, Minn., Star-Tribune. By staging an unprecedented final-round comeback against Tiger Woods in the PGA Championship on Sunday, Yang reminded us that "the improbable does happen, that a farmer's son from Korea can stare down the greatest golfer in history; that a guy you had never heard of on Saturday morning can give you chills on Sunday afternoon."
This upset wouldn't have happened if something hadn't changed in Tiger Woods, said Reid Cherner and Tom Weir in USA Today. "It would be hard to argue that he still isn't the greatest golfer on the planet." But Woods never, ever has missed clutch putts the way he did to squander his PGA lead. He's not "the same golfer he was"— Tiger Woods can now choke like everybody else.
It's tempting to say that Tiger Woods "lost" the tournament, said Stephanie Wei in The Huffington Post. But "let's give credit where credit is due: Y.E. Yang won the Wanamaker Trophy. Period." Woods blew putts in a way he never had before in a major, but Yang "played like a champion."
