NOTES:
The PGA Tour is in Louisville, Kentukcy this week for the final major of the season, the PGA Championship. Bubba Watson captured the first major of the year at The Masters; Martin Kaymer won the U.S. Open; and Rory McIlroy was victorious at the British Open Championship.

Tiger Woods will be seeking to win his first major since the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines and will be trying to win his fifth PGA Championship title. Woods won this championship in thrilling fashion the last time it was played at Valhalla Golf Club in 2000 in a playoff over Bob May.

This year's championship will have 99 of the top-100 players in the world competing. Dustin Johnson, who ranks 16th in the world, has withdrawn from the event due to personal challenges. In five previous appearances, Johnson has three top-10 finishes.

The winner of this event not only gains the impressive first-place prize, but also receives an exemption for the next five years to the U.S. Open; an invitation to the next five Masters Tournaments and British Opens; a berth in the 2014 PGA Grand Slam of Golf, 30 points toward the PGA Player of the Year award and his name on the Wanamaker Trophy. The winner of the PGA Championship has come out of the final pairing in the final round 15 of the last 18 years. Only Padraig Harrington in 2008, Kaymer in 2010, and Keegan Bradley in 2011 came from outside of the final group.

Americans have won 12 of the last 18 PGA Championships, however, four of the last six winners have come from overseas. Overall, players from the United States have captured 77 PGA's while South Africans and Australians have won four each. Walter Hagen and Jack Nicklaus captured the PGA five times, while Woods is a 4-time winner.

In addition, Woods is the all-time money winner at this event with $6,102,762 in earnings. With a minimum of 25 rounds played, he has the lowest scoring average at 70.27. There have been six wire-to-wire winners of the PGA, the last coming in 2005 when Phil Mickelson captured the event. Nicklaus and Raymond Floyd hold the record for the most cuts made with 27, while Tom Watson is next with 25.

Last year, Jason Dufner stumbled on the final two holes but did more than enough over the first 16 to win. Dufner had four birdies and 12 pars in the first 16 holes en route to a closing 2-under 68. Dufner fired a 63 in the second round to tie a PGA Championship record. His 36-hole total of 131 also tied the PGA Championship mark. Dufner ended his first major championship victory at 10-under- par 270 at Oak Hill.

In 2012, McIlroy cruised to his second major title when he won in historic fashion at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. McIlroy shot a 6-under 66 in the final round and won by eight strokes over David Lynn to establish a new tournament record for largest margin of victory. He eclipsed the great Nicklaus, who won the PGA by seven shots in 1980. McIlroy finished at 13-under 275. He collected his second major trophy at 23 years and four months, which is the sixth-youngest in history.

In 2011, Bradley defeated Dufner in a playoff to earn his first major title in his rookie season. Bradley finished the 3-hole playoff at 1-under par and beat Dufner by a single stroke at Atlanta Athletic Club. Bradley became the third golfer in history to win in his major championship debut. Francis Ouimet won the 1913 U.S. Open in his first major appearance and Ben Curtis did the same at the 2003 British Open. Bradley also ended a major drought for Americans. The last major winner from the U.S. had been Mickelson at the 2010 Masters. The 6-tournament span without an American winner was the longest in history.

Kaymer defeated Bubba Watson in a playoff in 2010 to earn his first major title. Kaymer bogeyed the final hole of the playoff to win by a stroke at even-par 11. He and Watson were tied at 1-under with the last playoff hole to go, but Kaymer's bogey was one better than Watson's double. Kaymer collected his first major and first PGA Tour win, but the interesting story happened before the 3-hole aggregate playoff because it looked like there would be three players in the extra session. Dustin Johnson was given a 2-stroke penalty after his round for grounding his club in a bunker on the 18th hole and that knocked him out of a playoff at Whistling Straits. Johnson held a 1-stroke lead on the 18th tee and pushed his drive into the gallery on the right. His ball landed in a small sandy patch and he grounded his club before pulling his shot well left of the green. He pitched to seven feet and if he would have made it, he thought that would've been for the title. Johnson missed and thought he was headed to a playoff with Watson and Kaymer. When Johnson walked off the green, he was greeted by a PGA official. Johnson and playing partner Nick Watney sat in the scorer's tent for several minutes before it was determined that Johnson was getting a 2-stroke penalty for grounding his club.

In 2009, Y.E. Yang became the first Asian man to win a major championship when he stunned third-round leader Woods. Yang was the first player to ever come from behind and beat Woods in a major championship when he held at least a piece of the 54-hole lead. Woods had been 14-0 with the third-round lead at a major. Yang birdied the last hole for a 2-under 70 in the final round and won the title at 8-under 280. Woods finished with a bogey at 18 and shot a 3-over 75 to finish three back.

Padraig Harrington holed a gutsy 12-foot par save on the 72nd hole in 2008 to win his second major in a row. Harrington finished with his second consecutive 4-under 66 to win his third major title at 3-under 277. Sergio Garcia's bid for a first major title once again ended in heartbreak. He held the lead on the back nine, but a bogey at the last gave him a round of 2-under 68 and a share of second place with third-round leader Curtis, who shot a 1-over 71. The pair came in at 1-under 279. Harrington became the fourth player to win the British Open and PGA Championship in the same year, joining Walter Hagen (1924), Nick Price (1994) and Woods (2000 and 2006). Harrington became the first European to win the Wanamaker Trophy since Tommy Armour in 1930 and the first European to take home consecutive majors.

In 2006, Woods collected his 12th professional major championship and his third PGA Championship, as he won the PGA for the second time at Medinah Country Club. Woods became the first player to win the PGA Championship on the same course twice. Woods moved to second on the all-time majors list as he jumped past Hagen. Woods picked up his 12th major almost three years earlier than Nicklaus was able to win his 12th at the 1973 PGA Championship. Woods fired a final-round, 4-under 68 to finish the event at 18-under-par 270. That matched his own PGA Championship record for lowest score in relation to par, which he originally set in 2000 along with Bob May. He was the only player in the field with four rounds in the 60s (69-68-65-68).

Woods again won the PGA Championship in 2007 at Southern Hills for his 13th major title. Woods tied a PGA Championship record with a 63 in the second round to grab the lead and led the rest of the way. He shot a final-round, 1-under 69 to finish the tournament at 8-under-par 272, which was good for a 2-stroke victory over Woody Austin. The win was Woods' fourth PGA Championship and he has successfully defended this title twice.

The 2005 championship was completed on Monday due to a weather-delayed final round. Mickelson got up and down for birdie on the 72nd hole at Baltusrol Golf Club to capture the event. Mickelson, who led wire-to-wire, edged Thomas Bjorn and Steve Elkington by one shot, as he won with a 4-round score of 276, 4-under par. The Monday finish was the first since 1976 at Congressional.

The PGA Tour travels to North Carolina next week for the Wyndham Championship, where Patrick Reed captured the title in 2013. The European Tour moves to Denmark next week for the inaugural Made in Denmark at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort in Aalborg.
