The 2019 PGA Championship is the 101st edition of the PGA Championship, and the second of golf's four major championships in 2019, held between May 16 and 19 at the Black Course in Bethpage State Park, Farmingdale, New York. This is the first edition under the new golfing calendar in which the PGA Championship is the second major of the year, having previously been the final one.[1] It is the first time Bethpage Black hosts the PGA Championship, although it hosted the U.S. Open in 2002 and 2009, won by Tiger Woods and Lucas Glover, respectively.[2]

First round[edit]

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Defending champion Brooks Koepka led after the first round with a bogey-free course-record 63.[11] It was the second time Koepka had scored 63 in a major championship; the first being in the second round when winning in 2018.[12] World number 119, Danny Lee was a stroke behind after a round of 64 which included eight birdies and two bogeys. Tommy Fleetwood was in third place, four behind Koepka. 16 players broke the par of 70, including world number-one Dustin Johnson. Masters champion Tiger Woods scored 72, a round that contained an eagle, three birdies, three bogeys and two double-bogeys.[13]

Second round[edit]

Friday, May 17, 2019

Brooks Koepka shot a second round 65 which included seven birdies and two bogeys. He set a new record for the lowest 36-hole score in a major championship and his seven stroke lead over Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth also set a 36-hole PGA Championship record and was the largest at the halfway point of any major championship since Henry Cotton led by nine in the 1934 Open Championship.[15] Scott was the only player to score lower than Koepka, with a round of 64 than included seven birdies in the first 14 holes and a bogey at the 17th. Danny Lee, in second place after the first round, dropped six shots in his first seven holes and finished with a round of 74.

82 players made the cut at 144, four strokes over par. Amongst those missing the cut were Masters champion Tiger Woods and world number 8 Bryson DeChambeau. Three PGA club professionals made the cut: Marty Jertson, Rob Labritz and Ryan Vermeer. This was the most since the number of qualifiers through the PGA Professional Championship was reduced from 25 to 20 in 2006.[16]

Third round[edit]

Saturday, May 18, 2019

Brooks Koepka maintained his seven stroke lead after a level-par 70, a round that included three birdies and three bogeys. His seven shot lead after three rounds was a record for the PGA Championship, although he failed to break the 54-hole scoring record of 196 held by David Toms in the 2001 championship. Jazz Janewattananond and Harold Varner III had the best rounds of the day, both scoring 67 and moving into a tie for second place. Also tied for second were Dustin Johnson and Luke List. Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth both scored 72, dropping from second place into a tie for eighth.[17]
