This Day In Sports History (August 12th) — Tiger Woods
It was on this day in 2007 that Tiger Woods won the 89th annual PGA Championship. The tournament was held at the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Tiger Woods had a rough start to the tournament as he shot a +1 (70) in the opening round and sat six shots back of the leader. However, Tiger turned it around in the second round and tied the course record by shooting a 63 to head into the weekend with a two-shot lead. Woods would not look back from there, as he claimed his fourth PGA Championship, improving to 13-0 in major championships when holding at least a share of the 54-hole lead.
This was Tiger’s 13th career major title, but he has only one win since then.
Here is Tiger accepting his trophy in 2007:
