Key moments in PGA Championship history
Question of the Day
2007 (5 years ago)
Winner: Tiger Woods.
Course: Southern Hills.
Runner-up: Woody Austin.
Margin: 2 shots.
Winner’s share: $1.26 million.
Recap: Tiger Woods played in the final group of the first two majors of the year without winning, and the talk at the PGA Championship was that his game did not fit Southern Hills. He tied for 21st in a 30-man field at the Tour Championship in 1996 and tied for 12th at the 2001 U.S. Open. In stifling temperatures, Woods executed his game plan to perfection to win back-to-back in the PGA Championship for the second time and make sure the year did not end without a major. Woods had a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole of the second round for a 62 that would have set a major championship record. It circled around the cup and he had to settle for 63, but he was on his way. The last challenge came from Woody Austin, who pulled within one shot on the back nine. Looking back, it’s curious to watch Woods hole a 25-foot birdie putt behind the eighth green and stumble as he turned to pump his fist. He said he wasn’t hurt. He had two knee surgeries over the next 10 months.
