Former PGA Championship winner Y.E. Yang shot a 5-under 67 for a share of fourth place in the Chiangmai Classic after the third round Saturday, six strokes behind leader Prayad Marksaeng of Thailand.
The South Korean, who came from behind to beat Tiger Woods in the 2009 PGA Championship, eagled No. 14 and birdied two of his last three holes at Alpine Golf Resort.
Prayad (66) leads by five shots from compatriot Thongchai Jaidee (69) and Matthew Stieger of Australia (68). Yang is in a group of six.
Prayad says of his rivals that ''if they cannot hit birdies, I think it will be my day.''
Four-time major winner Ernie Els, the reigning British Open champion, shot a 66 to be eight strokes off the pace in equal 15th place.

HUMBLE, Texas (AP) — Maybe it was that he wanted to go into the Master’s with some momentum or he wanted to clear up his swing or maybe he wanted to make sure everyone knew before the first major of the year – he’s back…..really back…scary back! But Hunter Mahan doesn’t believe Tiger Woods has to win a major to validate his return to No. 1 in the world.

Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods recently confirmed they are dating, though they have not revealed many details about their relationship. Vonn chose not to elaborate on her relationship with Woods, but she did tell The Denver Post she was “very happy.”

Poor little tink tink.
It seems Kris Humphries can’t find a woman to stay with him longer than a few months, before running to the arms of a wealthier more popular man.
According to Gossip Extra, before Tiger Woods publicly announced he was in a relationship with Lindsey Vonn, it appears Humphries was close in the second place.
