CHASKA, Minn. -- Yes, that is Y.E. Yang who just chipped in for eagle on the 14th hole, giving the South Korean -- albeit temporarily -- a two-shot lead over Tiger Woods. Woods answered moments later with a birdie that pulled him back within one, but the message was still clear: this anonymous veteran who was supposed to be little more than a glorified walking scorer isn't going away anytime soon.

Somewhere Bob May is smiling.

Or kicking himself...
