Tiger Got Yang’ed

In Uncategorized on August 20, 2009 at 1:08 am

By now, everyone has heard:

Unknown South Korean golfer Y.E. Yang, 110th in the world rankings and basically anonymous, took on Goliath and emerged victorious in the PGA Championship at Hazeltine.

And, just so we have it on the record, this qualifies as a choke, right?

I mean, Tiger was leading throughout the weekend. Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Leading. The guy was 14-0 when leading going into the final round of a major (and heaven knows, we all heard about it…over and over again). And then Tiger finds himself paired up with Y.E. Yang and he blows it.

That’s a choke, in any language.
