2009 PGA Championship

 

The 2009 PGA Championship was the 91st time the tournament was played. Y.E. Yang outdueled Tiger Woods to become the first Korean major winner.

Winner: Y.E. Yang, 280

Where it was played: Hazeltine National Golf Club, Chaska, Minn.

Tournament dates: August 13-16, 2009

Leader after first round: Tiger Woods, 67

Leader after second round: Tiger Woods, 137

Leader after third round: Tiger Woods, 208

Notable Notes: Tiger Woods held the lead for three days, but lost it on the fourth and final day to Y.E. Yang. Woods led Yang and Padraig Harrington by two strokes entering the final round. Harrington skied to a 78 and was never a factor.

But Yang took the lead away from Woods on the 14th-hole with a chip-in birdie, and wound up shooting 70 to Woods' 75. It marked the first time that Woods had ever lost a 54-hole lead in a major.
