1969 PGA Championship Winner and Scores

The 1969 PGA Championship was the 51st time the tournament was played. The winner was a first-time (but not a last-time) major champ.

Winner: Raymond Floyd, 276

Where it was played: NCR Country Club in Kettering, Ohio

Tournament dates: August 14-17, 1969

Leader after first round: Al Geiberger, Bob Lunn, Bunky Henry, Charles Coody, Johnny Pott, Larry Mowry, Larry Ziegler, Raymond Floyd and Tom Shaw, 69

Leader after second round: Raymond Floyd, 135

Leader after third round: Raymond Floyd, 202

Notable Notes: Nine golfers shared the first-round lead, including Raymond Floyd. But Floyd took over from there, leading after each round succeeding round. That included a final margin of one stroke over runner-up Gary Player. Player's runner-up finish was remarkable given that he was the target of anti-apartheid protesters during the week. For Floyd, it was the first of his four career wins in majors.
