John Daly wins the 73rd PGA Championship
John Daly won his first major championship by three strokes over Bruce Lietzke.
Daly was quite arguably the most unforeseen major championship winner in modern history. He was the eighth alternate who only qualified after several others pulled out of the tournament. His outgoing personality and "grip it and rip it" style of play made him an instant fan favorite. The PGA Championship was his first tour victory.
