PGA Championship Notes

Eight of the top-10 finishers at the 1996 U.S. Open at Oakland Hills, the last major contested at the course, were or became major championship winners: Steve Jones, Tom Lehman, Davis Love III, Ernie Els, Jim Furyk, Vijay Singh, Lee Janzen and Greg Norman.

Hunter Mahan, Ryan Moore, D.J. Trahan and Camilo Villegas all made it to at least the third round of match play in the 2002 U.S. Amateur at Oakland Hills. All four are in this week’s field. Mahan lost in the finals to Ricky Barnes and Ryan Moore made it to the quarterfinals.

The winner of the PGA Championship has come out of the last pairing in the final round each of the last 12 years. Steve Elkington (1995) was the last PGA Championship winner not to play in the final group Sunday. Elkington was tied for fifth entering the final round. In 2008, all three major championship winners have played in the final pairing.

Sixteen times players have shot four rounds in the 60s at the PGA Championship, led by three players who have done it twice—Steve Lowery (1995 and 2001) and Steve Elkington (1995 and 1998). Only five players who have had four sub-70 rounds have gone on to win. They are Lee Trevino (1984), Paul Azinger (1993), Elkington (1995), David Toms (2001) and Tiger Woods (2006).

Robert Karlsson is the only player to record top-10 finishes in each of the first three major championships of 2008.

Through the first three major championships of 2008, the winners have been from three different countries. If an American-born player does not win the PGA Championship, it will mark the first time since 1994 that at least two of the four major championships have not been won by an American. In 1994, Spain’s Jose Maria Olazabal (Masters Tournament), South Africa’s Ernie Els (U.S. Open), South Africa’s Nick Price (British Open and PGA Championship).

Heading into this year’s PGA Championship, Phil Mickelson has only one top-10 finish in his last nine starts in major championships (tie for fifth at this year’s Masters Tournament). This is his longest stretch of major championships played without at least two top-10s since he turned professional in 1992.

Ernie Els, with career PGA Championship earnings of $1,366,815, has made the most money of any player who has yet to win. Els has made the cut 12 times in 15 starts at the PGA Championship and has four top-10s and eight top-25s. He has finished in the top five in three of the last four years, including a solo-third finish in 2007.
