NOTES:
The PGA Tour is in Rochester, New York this week for the final major of theseason, the PGA Championship. Adam Scott captured the first major of the yearat The Masters; Justin Rose won the U.S. Open; and Phil Mickelson wasvictorious at the British Open Championship. World No. 1 Tiger Woods will belooking to win his first major since the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines andwill be trying to win his fifth PGA Championship title. Oak Hill Country Clubwill host the PGA championship for the third time. Shaun Micheel won at OakHill in 2003 and Jack Nicklaus captured the title in 1980.

The winner of this event not only gains the impressive first-place prize, butalso receives an exemption for the next five years to the U.S. Open; aninvitation to the next five Masters Tournaments and British Opens; a berthin the 2013 PGA Grand Slam of Golf, 30 points toward the PGA Player of theYear award and his name on the Wanamaker Trophy. The winner of the PGAChampionship has come out of the final pairing in the final round 14 of thelast 17 years. Only Padraig Harrington in 2008, Martin Kaymer in 2010, andKeegan Bradley in 2011 came from outside of the final group.

Americans have won 11 of the last 17 PGA Championships, however, four of thelast five winners have come from overseas. Overall, players from the UnitedStates have captured 76 PGA's while South Africans and Australians have wonfour each. Walter Hagen and Jack Nicklaus captured the PGA five times, whileWoods is a four time winner.

In addition, Woods is the all-time money winner at this event with $6,074,762in earnings. With a minimum of 25 rounds played, he has the lowest scoringaverage at 70.12. There have been six wire-to-wire winners of the PGA, thelast coming in 2005 when Mickelson captured the event. Nicklaus and RaymondFloyd hold the record for the most cuts made with 27, while Tom Watson is nextwith 25.

Last year, Rory McIlroy cruised to his second major title when he won inhistoric fashion at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. McIlroy shot a 6-under66 in the final round and won by eight strokes over David Lynn to establish anew tournament record for largest margin of victory. He eclipsed the greatNicklaus, who won the PGA by seven shots in 1980. McIlroy finished at 13-under275. He collected his second major trophy at 23 years and four months, which isthe sixth-youngest in history.

In 2011, Keegan Bradley defeated Jason Dufner in a playoff to earn his firstmajor 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 championshipdebut. Francis Ouimet won the 1913 U.S. Open in his first major appearance andBen Curtis did the same at the 2003 British Open. Bradley also ended amajor drought for Americans. The last major winner from the U.S. had beenMickelson at the 2010 Masters. The 6-tournament span without an Americanwinner was the longest in history.

Martin Kaymer defeated Bubba Watson in a playoff in 2010 to earn his firstmajor title. Kaymer bogeyed the final hole of the playoff to win by a strokeat even-par 11. He and Watson were tied at 1-under with the last playoff holeto go, but Kaymer's bogey was one better than Watson's double. Kaymer collectedhis first major and first PGA Tour win, but the interesting story happenedbefore the 3-hole aggregate playoff because it looked like there would bethree players in the extra session. Dustin Johnson was given a 2-stroke penaltyafter his round for grounding his club in a bunker on the 18th hole and thatknocked him out of a playoff at Whistling Straits. Johnson held a 1-strokelead on the 18th tee and pushed his drive into the gallery on the right. Hisball landed in a small sandy patch and he grounded his club before pullinghis shot well left of the green. He pitched to seven feet and if he wouldhave made it, he thought that would've been for the title. Johnson missedand thought he was headed to a playoff with Watson and Kaymer. When Johnsonwalked off the green, he was greeted by a PGA official. Johnson and playingpartner Nick Watney sat in the scorer's tent for several minutes before it wasdetermined 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 whenhe stunned third-round leader Woods. Yang was the first player to ever comefrom behind and beat Woods in a major championship when he held at least apiece of the 54-hole lead. Woods had been 14-0 with the third-round lead at amajor. Yang birdied the last hole for a 2-under 70 in the final round and wonthe title at 8-under 280. Woods finished with a bogey at 18 and shot a 3-over75 to finish three back.

Padraig Harrington holed a gutsy 12-foot par save on the 72nd hole in 2008 towin his second major in a row. Harrington finished with his secondconsecutive 4-under 66 to win his third major title at 3-under 277. SergioGarcia's bid for a first major title once again ended in heartbreak. He heldthe lead on the back nine, but a bogey at the last gave him a round of 2-under68 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 fourthplayer 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 TommyArmour in 1930 and the first European to take home consecutive majors.

In 2006, Woods collected his 12th professional major championship and histhird PGA Championship, as he won the PGA for the second time at MedinahCountry Club. Woods became the first player to win the PGA Championship on thesame course twice. Woods moved to second on the all-time majors list as hejumped past Hagen. Woods picked up his 12th major almost three years earlierthan 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 topar, which he originally set in 2000 along with Bob May. He was the onlyplayer 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 13thmajor title. Woods tied a PGA Championship record with a 63 in the secondround 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 Championshipand he has successfully defended this title twice.

The 2005 championship was completed on Monday due to a weather-delayed finalround. Mickelson got up and down for birdie on the 72nd hole at Baltusrol GolfClub to capture the event. Mickelson, who led wire-to-wire, edged Thomas Bjornand 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 Sergio Garcia captured the title in 2012. The European Tour moves toScotland in two weeks for the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles, wherePaul Lawrie is the defending champion.
