Greatest Upset in Golf History?

That's what Yahoo's Jay Busbee thinks. Sorry, no sale. Not close, really.

Francis Ouimet's 1913 U.S. Open victory can probably never be topped. Francis was a 20-year-old caddie at Brookline and only entered the tournament because they needed one more golfer. He then forces a three-way playoff with Harry Vardon and Ted Ray, the top two golfers in the world at the time. He withstands the pressure of the playoff and posts a |STAR|five-shot|STAR| victory to become the first amateur to win the U.S. Open. Now that's an upset.

Yang won the Honda in March and had four consecutive Top-25 finishes entering this tournament (including a fifth-place two weeks ago at the Buick). So, it's no surprise that he was capable of winning. It's only a surprise that Tiger didn't win. But that has more to do with Tiger than Yang. Yang made two big shots – his chip-in for eagle on 14 and his second shot on 18 that sealed the victory. The rest of the story was Tiger inexplicably missing his putts. It's more of a choke job than an upset.
