PGA Championship Quotes 2009, Day Four

With YE Yang, Tiger, Rory and Padraig...

"I broke even, probably about three years after I took up golf, so around 22. I wasn't really trying to become a PGA tour professional; I was trying to probably work as a club pro or just work as an instructor at a local driving range to just make both ends meat."
When all's said and done, 2009 PGA Champion YE Yang has done OK for himself, hasn't he.

"YE played great all day. I don't think he really missed a shot all day. He just made that mistake at 17 - but other than that, he hit it great all day. And it was a fun battle. Unfortunately, I just didn't make the putts when I needed to make them.
Never has the word fun been uttered through teeth more gritted. Still, Tiger Woods puts a brave face on missing out on his 15th major championship title.

"I had been changing my chipping action a little, and I probably was more into what I was doing rather than trying to get the ball up-and-down, and you know, I hit a bad shot. So these things happen."
2008 PGA Champion Padraig Harrington reflects on carding an eight on the par-three 8th hole, the second week in a row his title challenge has disappeared in 15 minutes of madness. 

"It's been a great week for me. I'm looking forward to getting home and I have a couple weeks off and reflect on the four majors that are played this year and I feel very pleased the way I played them."
Even if you may be getting a little weary of hearing commentators rhapsodise at the mere sight of the Irishman's swing, that's a good finish to a promising majors season for Rory McIlroy, tied for third place at 3-under with Lee Westwood.

"That is the greatest shot I have ever seen."
Sky Sports commentator and Imagine Golf Club blogger Rob Lee tips his hat to 2009 PGA Champion YE Yang for his second shot to the 18th hole.

"If a member is looking for a lesson or a club to be regripped, we take care of the members first. I always try to take care of myself last. I got a little bit of practice in but not nearly enough to feel really prepared coming here."
Greg Bisconti, one of two club professionals who made the cut at the 2009 PGA Championship. Could he be the next YE Yang?
