Upset of the Year?

Oh, Joy!

This is definitely one, if not the biggest upset of the year, in any sports perhaps. The electricity it spark around the sporting world is unbelievable. Not only Korean golfer Yang Yong-eun became the first Asian-born player to capture a major title, he defeated the great Tiger Woods in the process. Wow!

CHASKA, Minn. - Y.E. Yang shook his fists and shouted with joy over a victory felt around the world. Equally stunning was the sight of Tiger Woods, standing over the final putt of the PGA Championship with nothing at stake.

Yang showed everyone how to beat him, from the stars who had failed so many times over the last dozen years, and perhaps to an emerging generation of golfers in Asia, the fastest-growing golf market in the world.
