1984 PGA Championship: Trevino Rides Again

The 1984 PGA Championship was the 66th edition of the tournament and the site of Lee Trevino's final win in a major.

Winner: Lee Trevino, 273

Where it was played: Shoal Creek Golf and Country Club in Birmingham, Alabama

Tournament dates: August 16-19, 1984

Leader after first round: Lanny Wadkins, Mike Reid and Raymond Floyd, 68

Leader after second round: Gary Player, Lanny Wadkins and Lee Trevino, 137

Leader after third round: Lee Trevino, 204

Notable Notes: Forty-eight-year-old Gary Player tied the major championship scoring record of 63 in the second to grab a share of the lead with Lanny Wadkins and 44-year-old Lee Trevino. That trio battled over the next two rounds until Trevino emerged with the victory. It was Trevino's sixth and last win in a major. It was Trevino's first win of any kind in three years; back problems had caused him to start exploring TV broadcast work.
