Yang, 46, dreams of winning again on PGA Tour

HONOLULU – Y.E. Yang made a cameo on the Sony Open leaderboard Friday before capping his round with back-to-back bogeys to drop into the middle of the pack.

Remember Yang? He was the last guy standing at the 2009 PGA Championship, when Tiger Woods blinked for the first time on a Sunday of a major championship. We all know how Woods’ career has progressed since that PGA. Yang’s path is no less cautionary.

Yang has played 127 PGA Tour events since his major breakthrough, missing 49 cuts and managing to finish inside the top 10 on just seven occasions.
