US PGA Championship

 
The 2008 US PGA Championship was won by a European player for the first time in more than 70 years, Padraig Harrington making it consecutive majors by holding out Sergio Garcia and Ben Curtis to win by two strokes. 2009 was even more dramatic, as Korea's Y.E. Yang became the first Asian golfer to win a major championship, out-duelling Tiger Woods to eventually win by three shots. Yang inflicted the first ever major defeat on Woods when he held the 54-hole lead, and clinched victory with a stunning 3-hybrid approach to the 72nd green that stopped feet from the pin and ensured his place in golfing history. In 2010 it was German Martin Kaymer, who clinched the title in a three-hole playoff over Bubba Watson, after Dustin Johnson was penalised two strokes on 72nd hole for grounding his club in a bunker. PGA Tour rookie Keegan Bradley then captured the 2011 PGA at Atlanta Athletic Club, winning a playoff over Jason Dufner and becoming the first player to win in his first major since Ben Curtis at the Open Championship in 2003.
 
The 2017 event at Quail Hollow was won by America's Justin Thomas. It is Thomas's first Major.
