The Y.E. Yang $25,000 PGA Championship Payout

Y.E. Yang

The 2009 PGA Championship leader board had Tiger Woods and Korean Y.E. Yang neck and neck much of the day closing the tournament.  Ultimately it was Yang who pulled off the win with a payout of $25,000 for every $100 bet, though we should point out that very few people had bets on Yang and, those who did, probably weren't wagering much.  This was the exact scenario that took place when Mine That Bird won the 2009 Kentucky Derby as a huge long shot, paying nearly $100,000 for anyone who dropped a $100 on him.  Most of those bets were in the range of $10 however.

Towards the end he holed out from the greenside rough for an eagle on the par-4 14th. Woods made an 8-footer for birdie, but that still left him a stroke behind.

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.
