2000 Tiger Woods wins the 82nd PGA Championship at Valhalla, Kentucky, becoming the first player in the stroke-play era to successfully defend the title. He claimed his fifth major championship in a three hole playoff with little-known Bob May after both finished on a total of 270, 18 under par, a PGA scoring record to par which stands to this day (but equalled by Woods in 2006), and also made him the scoring record holder at all four majors.
Woods birdied the first playoff hole to go one ahead, then both parred the second and third, giving Woods his third major of 2000, following the US Open and Open Championship. To these he would add the 2001 Masters, completing the 'Tiger Slam' and becoming the only player ever to hold all four majors simultaneously.
