1958 PGA Championship

 

The 1958 PGA Championship was the 40th time the tournament was played. This was the first year in which stroke play was used.

Winner: Dow Finsterwald, 276

Where it was played: Llanerch Country Club in Havertown, Pennsylvania

Tournament dates: July 17-20, 1958

Leader after first round: Dow Finsterwald, 67

Leader after second round: Dow Finsterwald and Jay Hebert, 139

Leader after third round: Sam Snead, 207

Notable Notes: Dow Finsterwald was the first stroke-play champion in tournament history. Every prior year of the PGA Championship's existence, it was played at match play. But this year, it switched to stroke play. Finsterwald won by two strokes over Billy Casper, and four over third-round leader Sam Snead.
