Julius Boros: The oldest ever winner of a major

Julius Boros became the oldest winner of the PGA (and any major) when he claimed the trophy at the Pecan Valley Golf Club in Texas in 1968 at the age of 48 years and 121 days.

The youngest winner of the PGA Championship was Gene Sarazen back in 1922 at only 20 years and 174 days old.

Sam Snead was the victim of the biggest defeat in PGA Championship history when he lost the matchplay final of 1938 to Paul Runyan by 8&7 at the Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort.

Rory McIlroy's eight-shot victory at Kiawah Island last year set a new record for the biggest win since the tournament became a stroke play event, eclipsing the seven-stroke win achieved by Jack Nicklaus in 1980.

David Toms carded the lowest four-round score in PGA - and major - history when his 15-under par 265 was good enough to win at Atlanta Athletic Club by a shot from Phil Mickelson in 2001.

Tiger Woods and Bob May were a PGA Championship record 18 under par at Valhalla in 2000. Woods went on to win his third straight major in the play-off.

Bruce Crampton was the first of 20 men to fire a 63 in the PGA Champinship in 1975. The last was Tiger Woods in 2007.

Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez holds the PGA record with 10 consecutive rounds below par. All four rounds in 1995 and 1996 and then in his first two rounds in 1999 at Medinah.

Ben Hogan won the Masters, US Open and Open in 1953 but did not play the PGA because it clashed with the Open.

Four men have won the Open and PGA in the same year; Walter Hagen (1924), Nick Price (1994), Tiger Woods (2000), and Padraig Harrington (2008).
