PGA Championship: Y.E. Yang relives Hazeltine win during rain delay

As the rain poured down on Kiawah Island, halting play on Day 3 of the PGA Championship, CBS Sports decided to replay the final round of the 2009 tournament from Hazeltine.

To most, it seemed like the Eye was kicking Tiger Woods while he was down - figuratively and literally as he has dropped three shots on the day to fall five behind co-leaders Rory McIlroy and Vijay Singh.

From the point of view of Y.E. Yang, the man who beat Woods on that '09 Sunday in Minnesota, it was a happy afternoon.


Yang shot 2-over 74 on Saturday morning at Kiawah Island, already through three rounds at 5 over when the rain delay began.
