1996 PGA Championship

 

The 1996 PGA Championship was the 78th time the tournament was played, and it required a playoff to crown the winner.

Winner: Mark Brooks, 277

Where it was played: Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky

Tournament dates: August 8-11, 1996

Leader after first round: Kenny Perry, 66

Leader after second round: Phil Mickelson, 134

Leader after third round: Russ Cochran, 205

Notable Notes: Home-state hero Kenny Perry shot a final-round 68 to force a playoff against Mark Brooks, who closed with a round of 70. But Perry's dream to win a major in Kentucky didn't come true; Brooks beat him on the first hole of the sudden-death playoff with a birdie. (This was the last time the PGA Championship used the sudden-death format.) Perry lost playoffs at two majors, and never won a major. This was also Brooks' only win in a major, although he, too, later lost in another playoff.
