2009 - Week 14 Winner

Y.E Yang (ranked 55th by Golf Predictor) became South Korea's second ever winner on the US PGA Tour at the Honda Classic today. He didn't make it easy on himself, but he eventually joined compatriot K.J. Choi in the US PGA Tour winner's circle. Yang frittered away a four shot lead after 12 holes of the final round, but he secured victory with a two putt par from 50 feet on the par five 18th. The win booked Yang a place at next week's WGC event, a Masters berth, a two year US PGA Tour exemption and a juicy million dollar plus cheque. Not a bad haul at all!

The big names didn't perform too well this week. Our top pick, Sergio Garcia, tied for 13th and we also had Robert Allenby, Davis Love III and Rory McIlroy in the top 13 plus ties. Our second ranked player, Luke Donald, withdrew before the tournament started due to a wrist injury.

There was no European PGA Tour event this week.
