The 2000 PGA Championship was the 82nd PGA Championship, held August 17–20 at the Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky. It was the second time for the event at Valhalla, which hosted four years earlier in 1996. Tiger Woods won his second straight PGA Championship and fifth major in a three-hole playoff over Bob May.[2] Woods and May finished at 18 under par to set the PGA Championship record to par, later equaled by Woods in 2006. It was the first time since 1937 that a PGA Championship title was successfully defended, and the first ever as a stroke play event. Woods and May were five shots ahead of third place finisher Thomas Bjørn.[3]

Woods' victory marked the first time since 1953 (Ben Hogan) that a player had won three major championships in the same calendar year; Woods won the U.S. Open and the British Open in the previous two months for three consecutive majors. He won the Masters in April 2001 to complete the Tiger Slam of four consecutive majors.

May opened with an even-par 72 then shot 66 (−6) in each of the final three rounds; this was the only time he was in contention in a major championship. Designer of the course and five-time champion Jack Nicklaus, age 60, made his final appearance at the PGA Championship. Playing with Woods, he needed an eagle on the 36th hole to make the cut; his pitch shot missed by inches and he settled for birdie.[4]
