PGA Championship Winners Not From the U.S.A.
There have been two different formats to this major, the fourth and last of the year. From 1916 to 1957 it was a match-play event. Starting in 1958, the tournament has been scored by strokes from par.
Walter Hagen has the most PGA Championship wins in the match-play era, with 5. Jack Nicklaus has 5 too, during stroke play.
Tiger Woods is next. He’s won it 4 times.
Of the 93 PGA championships played, only 11 winners have not been U.S. citizens – including the last three in a row (all from first-time countries). Together they won the PGA 15 times.Follow @VinGetz
