Y.E. Yang Leads Chevron World Challenge

By  | 

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) - Despite battling a fever and a pounding headache, Y.E. Yang has shot a 7-under 65 to build a two-shot lead going into the weekend at the Chevron World Challenge.

Perhaps it was only fitting that Yang is leading the tournament hosted by Tiger Woods.

The South Korean made a name for himself as the first player to win a major when Woods was leading going into the final round. Yang rallied from a two-shot deficit at the PGA Championship.

Woods is not at Sherwood Country Club because of his car accident last week.

Yang led by two shots over Kenny Perry, Padraig Harrington and Ian Poulter.
