Yang Prepares to Defend Honda Classic Title

Y.E. Yang is returning to Florida this weekend in an effort to defend his title at the Honda Classic. Yang, whose first win of his career on the PGA Tour came at this tournament last season, was relatively unknown until an epic 2009 campaign.

After taking home the Honda in the early spring, he later defeated Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship in a highly memorable upset (marking the second time in his career that he had defeated the world's top player).

However, despite being a traditionally weak event on the Florida Swing, the PGA Tour has attracted Europe's top players with Rory McIlroy, Paul Casey, and Lee Westwood in the field. American young gun Anthony Kim is also scheduled to make an appearance.

Aside from bringing in bigger stars this season, Florida golf courses are seeing slightly colder temperatures this week - an unusual circumstance for the TOUR.

Play starts tomorrow after the pro-am concluded today. Even the pre-tournament pro-am gained some attention from the media because of the pairing of New Orleans Saints' quarterback Drew Brees with the legendary Jack Nicklaus.
