Reliving Tiger Woods' Four PGA Championship Wins

He's a major champion once again after a stunning victory at Augusta National last month, and now Tiger Woods turns his focus to the season's second major - the PGA Championship.

At Hole19 HQ we've been getting incredibly excited to watch the great man tee it up this week in New York, so we decided to take a look back at his quartet of PGA Championship victories.  Check them out below...

1999 - Medinah Country Club

The first win for Woods came at Medinah Country Club almost two decades ago and only looking back now can we see it as a mightily impressive sign of what was to come.  This was a tournament famous not only for a catapulting into multi-major winning status but also for the head-to-head with another young, prodigious talent, Sergio Garcia.

The Spaniard held the joint lead after the first round but come Sunday he would start his final round two shots behind both Woods and the Canadian Mike Weir.  What followed amounted to a real 'ding-dong' battle as well as a famously incredible golf shot (and reaction) from the eventual runner-up.

2000 - Valhalla Golf Club

The win at Valhalla in 2000 was every bit as tough (if not tougher) than the first PGA Championship success.  Despite finishing each of the first three rounds at the head of affairs, his then record-breaking -18 72-hole total was surprisingly equalled by 31-year-old Bob May.

Woods' competitive spirit would eventually prevail after a three-hole playoff, and he became the first man in the history of the game to retain the Wanamaker Trophy.

2006 - Medinah Country Club

Returning to the scene of his impressive victory back in 1999, Woods teed it up for the 82nd PGA Championship seeking a third Wanamaker and 12th major in all.

Always in touch over the first two rounds, it was in round three that a stunning 65 helped Woods climb into a joint lead with Englishman Luke Donald and everything seemed somewhat inevitable from there.  The winning margin of five strokes reflected the dominant nature of Woods' play over the four days.

2007 - Southern Hills Country Club

After a poor opening round 71(+1), Woods sat a full seven strokes behind 18-hole leader Graeme Storm.  A stunning second-round 63 would launch him into a sole lead which he would retain over the weekend to pick up a fourth PGA Championship win.

Perhaps back then few of us would have expected that the Wanamaker Trophy would escape Woods' grasp for almost 12 years between 2007 and now.  Time will tell whether he can buck that trend.

The closest Woods would come to adding a fifth was during the 2009 event at Hazeltine National where he relinquished a 54-hole lead for the first time in his major career, eventually losing out to South Korea's Y.E. Yang.

More recently he threatened to capture a 15th major at last year's 100th PGA Championship before finally succumbing to Brooks Koepka.
