The 1999 PGA Championship was the 81st PGA Championship, held August 12–15 at the Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Illinois, a suburb northwest of Chicago. Tiger Woods, 23, won his first PGA Championship and second major, one stroke ahead of runner-up Sergio García, age 19.[2]

At the time, many (including noted commentator Gary McCord) predicted this would mark the beginning of a long rivalry between Woods and García. García's outgoing antics during the tournament had captured the attention of many golf fans. Through 2013, he has yet to win a major title, while Woods is one of the most decorated professionals of all time.

Although this was the first PGA Championship held at Medinah, it was the fourth major; the U.S. Open was held at Course No. 3 in 1949, 1975, and 1990. The PGA Championship returned seven years later in 2006, also won by Woods, and Medinah hosted the Ryder Cup in 2012.
