Uspga Championship Past Winners

USPGA Championship Past Winners

The USPGA Championship is the last of the Golf Majors to take place each season but is no less important as it gives the players one last chance at grabbing a major before the season finishes. Some of the great names in golf have picked up the USPGA trophy in August and we have complied the full list of winners for you to study right here.

Jack Nicklaus and Walter Hagen hold the record for the most wins in the USPGA at five each, Hagen won his while the tournament was a match-play event with Nicklaus winning his in the stroke play era. Tiger Woods is the man who has dominated in recent years and he currently has four wins to his name, few would bet against him winning a few more while he still playing. The last couple of years has seen two historic victories with Padraig Harrington winning in 2008 to become the first European to win the PGA Championship, and then in 2009 Y.E. Yang became the first Asian player to win any of the the four Golf Majors at Hazeltine GC.
