1983 PGA Championship

 

The 1983 PGA Championship was the 65th edition of the tournament.

Winner: Hal Sutton, 274

Where it was played: Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, California

Tournament dates: August 4-7, 1983

Leader after first round: Hal Sutton, 65

Leader after second round: Hal Sutton, 131

Notable Notes: In the 1970s and 1980s, there were a lot of golfers tagged as "the next Jack Nicklaus." None of them turned out to be that, of course, but for a while it looked like Hal Sutton might. He was 1982 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, and he won this major wire-to-wire. He even held off Nicklaus to do it. Nicklaus charged on the last day with a 66, but Sutton held his nerve to finish one stroke better. It turned out to be Sutton's only win in a major. For Nicklaus, it was his four time finishing as PGA runner-up.
