The 2018 PGA Championship was the 100th PGA Championship, held on August 9–12 at Bellerive Country Club in Town and Country, Missouri, a suburb west of St. Louis. This was the second PGA Championship ( 1992) and third major ( 1965 U.S. Open) held at Bellerive. It was also the last to be held in the month of August. Just before the 2017 tournament, the PGA announced that the Championship will move to May in 2019. [1] [2]

Brooks Koepka won his third career major title, finishing two strokes ahead of runner-up Tiger Woods. [3] Koepka's 72-hole total of 264 set a PGA Championship record. [4]

Final round

Sunday, August 12, 2018

Brooks Koepka duplicated his Saturday score of 66 to win by two strokes ahead of runner-up Tiger Woods, who fired a 64 in the best final round of his career in a major. Koepka became the fifth American player to win three majors before the age of 29, joining Jack Nicklaus, Jordan Spieth, Tom Watson and Woods.

His 72-hole score of 264 set the PGA Championship record (previously 265 set by David Toms in 2001) and equaled the lowest total in major championship history (set by Henrik Stenson at the 2016 Open Championship). [21]
