1970 PGA Championship

 

The 1970 PGA Championship was the 52nd time the tournament was played.

Winner: Dave Stockton, 279

Where it was played: Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma

Tournament dates: August 13-16, 1970

Leader after first round: Jack Nicklaus and Johnny Miller, 68

Leader after second round: Dave Stockton and Larry Hinson, 140

Leader after third round: Dave Stockton, 206

Notable Notes: Dave Stockton went three up after three rounds on the strength of a 66, then held on to win by two strokes with a final-round 72. It was the first of Stockton's two wins in majors, both at the PGA. Arnold Palmer never won the PGA Championship, and he tied for second here with Bob Murphy.
