1973 PGA Championship

 

The 1973 PGA Championship was the 55th time the tournament was played.

Winner: Jack Nicklaus, 277

Where it was played: Canterbury Golf Club in Beachwood, Ohio

Tournament dates: August 9-12, 1973

Leader after first round: Al Geiberger and Don Iverson, 67

Leader after second round: Don Iverson and Mason Rudolph, 139

Leader after third round: Jack Nicklaus, 208

Notable Notes: Jack Nicklaus shot three sub-70 rounds after opening with a 72, took the lead in the third round, and gradually pulled ahead in the fourth. At the end, Nicklaus had a 4-stroke victory over Bruce Crampton (one of four times Crampton finished second to Nicklaus in a major). This was Nicklaus' third PGA Championship win, and his 12th win in a professional major. Including his two U.S. Amateur wins, it was his 14th major combined (amateur plus pro), breaking Bobby Jones' record.
