1935 PGA Championship Winner and Scores

The 1935 PGA Championship was the 18th time this major was played.

Winner: Johnny Revolta

Where it was played: Twin Hills Golf & Country Club in Oklahoma City, Okla.

Tournament dates: Oct. 17-23, 1935

Notable notes: Johnny Revolta defeated Tommy Armour in the championship match by a 5-and-4 score. This was one of only two Top 10 finishes in major championships for Revolta, despite the fact that he wound up as an 18-time PGA Tour winner. ... This was the swan song in the PGA Championship for the 40-year-old, three-time major winner Armour: He never won another match in this tournament. ... Five-time PGA champ Walter Hagen was the medalist in the stroke-play qualifier, but lost to Revolta in the first round of match play.
