The 1919 PGA Championship was the second PGA Championship, which is now considered one of golf's major championships. It was played from September 16–20 at the Engineers Country Club in Roslyn Harbor, New York. The PGA Championship was not held in 1917 or 1918 due to World War I. The field of 32 golfers qualified by sectional tournaments.[2] They competed in 36-hole match play rounds[1] in a single-elimination tournament.[3][4][5][6] Defending champion Jim Barnes defeated Fred McLeod, 6 & 5, in the final.[7]
