2008 PGA Championship

 

The 2008 PGA Championship was the 90th time the tournament was played.

Winner: Padraig Harrington, 277

Where it was played: Oakland Hills Country Club (South Course), Bloomfield Hills, Michigan

Tournament dates: August 7-10, 2008

Leader after first round: Robert Karlsson and Jeev Milkha Singh, 68

Leader after second round: J.B. Holmes, 139

Leader after third round: Ben Curtis, 208

Notable Notes: Padraig Harrington shot consecutive 66s in the third and fourth rounds to storm from behind and claim the trophy. It was Harrington's second consecutive major (after the 2008 British Open), and his third overall.

Third-round leader Ben Curtis had a respectable final-round 71, but finished tied for second with Sergio Garcia (68). Harrington was the first European-born golfer to win the PGA Championship since 1930.
