The PGA Championship moved its date to May in 2019, but it has actually been all around the calendar for much of its history. On July 19, 1964Bobby Nichols won the 46th playing at Columbus Country Club in Ohio. His nine-under 271 total beat a pair of heavyweights by three, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer.
 
July 18, 1959Bill Wright, at age 23, became the first African-American golfer to win a national championship when he won the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship. He defeated Frank Campbell, 3 and 2, in the 36-hole final in Denver.
 
July 16, 1938, one of the greatest and most mind-boggling results in major championship history happened when diminutive Paul Runyan defeated Sam Snead, 8 and 7, in the final of the PGA Championship at Shawnee Country Club. Runyan’s precise short game and fairway woods overcame Snead’s 30- to 40-yard driving advantage.
 
July 11, 1960, the playing of U.S. Amateur Public Links began on this date at Ala Wai Golf Course in Honolulu. Verne Callison of Sacramento, Calif., was the champion, handily defeating Tyler Caplin of East Lansing, Mich., 7 and 6.
 
July 8 , 1938, at Royal St. George's Golf Club in Sandwich, England, Reg Whitcombe survived in rough weather to win the Open Championship by two strokes over Jimmy Adams and three over defender Henry Cotton. The weather was even more diabolical than normal in 1938. The championship was supposed to be played in Deal at Royal Cinque Ports, but unusual high tides in February had damaged the course with flooding, forcing a switch to St. George's. The 36-hole final day was played in gale-force winds, which tore apart the exhibition tent. Whitcombe managed the mayhem the best, shooting 75-78.
 
July 1, 1967Mickey Wright, the greatest women's golfer of all-time, won her third U.S. Women's Open. The San Diego native won at Baltusrol Golf Club by six shots over Betsy Rawls, shooting 72-80-69-72-293.

    Ute Creek Golf Course Recognized for Environmental Excellence

    LONGMONT, Colo. – Audubon International is recognizing Ute Creek Golf Course for 10 years of certification as an Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary through its commitment to environmental stewardship and efforts to maintain a comprehensive environmental management program focused on wildlife and habitat management, water conservation, resource management, and outreach and education.

    “We're very proud to count Ute Creek Golf Course among our members,” said Christine Kane, CEO at Audubon

    International. “They made environmentally sustainable golf course management an integral part of their operating principles long before it became an accepted option. Their leadership has already brought many benefits to their community over the past decade and will continue to do so long into the future.”

    To reach certification in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program (ACSP) for Golf Courses, a course must maintain a high degree of environmental quality in several areas including Environmental Planning, Wildlife & Habitat Management, Outreach and Education, Chemical Use Reduction and Safety, Water Conservation, and Water Quality Management. After designation, courses must go through a recertification process every three years.

    Ute Creek Golf Course is one of about 750 courses in the world to be designated as a certified ACSP for Golf course. Through participation in the ACSP for Golf, Ute Creek Golf Course has been involved in numerous environmental projects, including conserving energy and reducing water use, utilizing integrated pest management techniques, naturalizing areas, and managing resources in an environmentally responsible manner.

    “Everyone involved with the Ute Creek Golf Course is honored for the course to be recognized by Audubon International for the tenth year,” said Golf Course Supervisor, Dan Reese. “Sustainability is a top priority for the Longmont City Council, and the City of Longmont, and it’s terrific that Ute Creek Golf Course serves as an example of success in the City.”

    Audubon International is an environmental organization dedicated to educating, assisting, and inspiring millions of people from all walks of life to protect and sustain the land, water, wildlife, and natural resources around them. In addition to golf courses, Audubon International also provides programs for businesses, communities, and new developments.

    June 27, 1903, Willie Anderson finished the U.S Open in a tie for first and then on the next day won the first of three in a row, defeating David Brown in an 18-hole playoff, 82-84. Anderson is still the lone golfer to have won three in a row.
     
    June 25, 1926, the 61st Open Championship ended on this date with Bobby Jones winning his first Open title, at Royal Lytham and St. Annes, two strokes ahead of Al Watrous.
     
    Ben Hogan has one of the greatest records in the U.S. Open. He impressingly tied for the most victories with four. That does not count the Hale America National Open in 1942, which the USGA doesn't include. Hogan's fourth victory came on June 13, 1953, when he won by six over Sam Snead at Oakmont. During the next seven years, Hogan had finishes of 7th, 2nd, 2nd, 10th, 8th and 9th, but never did win the National Open again. A couple other legendary figures in golf won majors on this date. In 1895, J.H. Taylor won a second straight Open Championship, this at St. Andrews, beating Sandy Herd by four shots. The following year, Taylor had a third straight title halted by Harry Vardon, who won at Muirfield in a 36-hole playoff.
     
    June 11, 1938Ralph Guldahl became the fourth person to win back-to-back U.S. Opens, following Willie Anderson, John McDermott and Bobby Jones. Guldahl shot a 69 at Cherry Hills to finish six shots ahead of Dick Metz. In 1937 he had finished two shots ahead of Sam Snead at Oakland Hills.
     
    June 10, 1904, The Open Championship ended at Royal St. George’s Golf club with Jack White the winner by one shot over the legendary twosome and future five-time winners James Braid and J.H. Taylor.
     
    June 5, 1925Willie MacFarlane defeated Bobby Jones in a 36-hole playoff by one stroke at the U.S. Open at Worcester (Mass.).  MacFarlane shot 75-72 to Jones' 75-73. Jones had won in 1923, and would win again in 1926, 1929 and 1930.
     
    June 3, 1945, Three time U.S. Open winner Hale Irwin was born in Joplin, Missouri.  The hall-of-fame golfer won the U.S. Open in 1974, 1979 and 1990, plus the U.S. Senior Open in 1998 and 2000. He won the “Massacre at Winged Foot” in the 1974 U.S. Open with a 7-over-par score

  • May 2024

    May 30, If you count Jim Barnes winning in 1916 and 1919 with the two middle years taken off for World War I, the PGA Championship has been won in consecutive years eight times. Tiger Woods did it twice, and Walter Hagen won four in a row, 1924-1927!
     
    May 23, 2002, with days of turning 90, Sam Snead passed away in Hot Springs, VA.  He was born on May 27, 1912, the same year as Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson.  1912 was a pretty good year for Golf!

He retired from broadcasting at age 71 in June 2002
     
    May 14, 1995Kelly Robbins won the only major of her career by one shot over Laura Davies at DuPont Country Club in the LPGA Championship. 
     
    May 10, 1929Walter Hagen won his fourth Open Championship, and 11th and final major championship at Muirfield, Scotland. His winning score was 12 over par, and that shot was 6 over fellow American Johnny Farrell. Known for his outsized personality and colorful wardrobe, Hagen is in the World Golf Hall of Fame.
     
    May 6, 1962, the year he won two majors, Arnold Palmer won the Tournament of Champions. He had scores of 69-70-69-68 for 276 and first prize of $11,000.
     
    May 3, 1990, Brooks Koepka, five-time major championship winner, was born in West Palm Beach, Florida. Also, on this date in 1964, the late Pete Brown won the Waco Turner Open at Turner Lodge in Burneyville, Oklahoma, becoming the first African-American to win an official PGA Tour event.

He was trailing Craig Wood by three shots, which he then tied.  He parred the 16th, 17th and 18th holes to preserve the tie. The following day, the pair played a 36-hole playoff, with Sarazen winning by five shots.

  • March 2024

    March 28, 2024, six times a PGA Tour event has been decided after an eight-hole, sudden-death playoff, the most holes it has taken to decide a winner. (Cary Middlecoff and Lloyd Mangrum played 11 holes for the 1949 Motor City Open but were stopped by darkness and declared co-champions.) The first of the eight occasions was on March 28, 1965, when Dick Hart beat Phil Rodgers at the Azalea Open. Also on this date, in 1999, Dottie Pepper won the Nabisco Championship (now the ANA Inspiration) for a second time at Mission Hills CC, six strokes ahead of runner-up Meg Mallon.
     
    March 25, 1934, the first Masters finished. Then called the Augusta National Invitation Tournament, it was won by Horton Smith when he holed a 20-foot birdie putt at the 17th hole and finished one shot ahead of Craig Wood. That first year, the nines were reversed, and the 17th was today’s par-5 eighth hole. This is the only time the Masters finished in the month of March.
     
    March 19, 1950, Babe Didrikson Zaharias won the U.S. Women’s Open (pre USGA run) at Rolling Hills Country Club by nine shots over Betsy Rawls.

    February 13, 1918, Patty Berg, one of the greatest womens golfers, was born in Minneapolis. She was a founding member and the first president of the LPGA. Her 15 major title wins remains the all-time record for most major wins by a female golfer. She is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame.
     
    February 6, 1971, Alan Shepard hit a couple of golf balls with a makeshift 6-iron on the moon as part of the Apollo 14 space mission. He snuck the club onboard the flight. Because of his spacesuit, he could only swing his right arm. On return, Shepard said he “shanked the first one; it rolled into a crater about 40 yards away. The second one, I kept my head down. I hit it flush and it went at least 200 yards.”
