MIAMI, Fl (August 22, 2009) – He came out of nowhere to stun the world of golf and became the first golfer ever to overtake Tiger Woods in the final round of a Major Championship. So, what are the keys to the swing that outperformed that of the reigning king of golf? Tuesday night on www.thegolfersnation.com, Jim McLean breaks down the swing of Y.E. Yang on Swing Analysis.
Yang, who shot a final round 70 to Tiger’s 75, won the 91st PGA Championship by three-strokes to claim his second win on the PGA TOUR – and second this season! Earlier this year, Yang won the Honda Classic. Even more amazing than outlasting Tiger is the fact that Yang didn’t take up the game until he was 19 years-old.
In the final round of the PGA Championship, Yang hit 11 of 14 fairways and nailed 15 greens in regulation. So what are the keys to the swing that ultimately led Yang to a Major Championship? Jim McLean, one of the best in the world at breaking down a swing, takes an in-depth look at Y.E. Yang, and examines his swing path, takes a look at his grip, and discusses what Yang did in the final round to shock golf fans everywhere.
