Yang’s PGA Championship win means a major for Mogg

PGA Tour clients are fickle, and Tacoma’s Brian Mogg hasn’t seen a
steady flow of them come his Brian Mogg Performance Center in
Windermere, Fla.

But one of the few he has is South Korea’s Y.E. Yang, who chased
down Tiger Woods to become the first Asian-born golfer to win a
professional major.

Mogg wasn’t at Hazeltine National Golf Club at the time Yang rolled
in his final birdie on the 72nd hole for a three-stroke victory over
Woods, but was immediately grabbed for interviews by The Golf Channel
back home in Florida.

And the Lakes High graduate said throughout practice rounds, he saw
that Yang’s game was so sharp, he said he told a few in the circles of
golf that his golfer would be a factor for the title.

Mogg has been Yang’s instructor for more than a year.
