(CNN) -- Yang Yong-eun is the Tiger-slayer. The Korean golfer stunned the world by beating Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship earlier this month, on the way becoming the first Asian-born winner of a major golfing event.
Ranked outside of the top 100 before the competition, the 37-year-old Yang has propelled golf in Korea into the international spotlight. Unlike so many pro-golfers, Yang didn't pick up the game until he was 19-years-old and first taught himself how to play by watching Jack Nicklaus videos.
Now a national hero, he tells CNN how he intends to follow up his amazing win.
