Incredible finish to the final major of the season last night. Tiger Woods got a taste of his own medicine off a Korean guy YE Yang who was ranked 110th in the world, who eventually beat him by 3 shots having been 2 behind at the start.

 

First time Tiger has ever lead going into the final round of a major and lost. Yang chipped in on the 14th for an eagle and hit an incredible rescue wood over a big tree and the greenside bunker to 8 feet on the tough 18th then rolled it in for birdie.

 

Its the first ever winner of a major from the Far East, so great news for the game over there - particularly the manner in which he won it. The women's game is really big over there already though, about half of the top 50 are Korean.

 

Two British players finished joint third as well - Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy. I had McIlroy each way from the start at 85-1 so a good little winner for the last big tournament of the year. He is going to be a big star in a few years.

 

Really enjoyed watching the golf this year - there were exciting finishes in all four majors. Every one of them was decided by a play-off (Open & Masters) or on the last hole (US Open & PGA) and Tiger for the first time in years missed out in all four.

 

He'll be back though - anyone who starts writing him off (as I've actually heard a few in the press start to do) is an idiot.
