1997 PGA Championship
Recap and Scores for the 1997 PGA Championship Golf Tournament

At the time of the 1997 PGA Championship, Davis Love III was one of the names brought up when golf fans talked about the "best player yet to win a major."

By the end of the week, Love had taken himself off that list.

Love opened with a 66 to share the first-round lead, but dropped a little back in the second round with a 71. But his weekend play was sterling with back-to-back 66s in the third and fourth rounds, and Love won by five strokes of Justin Leonard (who a month earlier had won his first major at the 1997 British Open).

Love's father, Davis Love Jr., was a PGA Professional. When Love won here, he became only the second son of a PGA Professional to win the PGA Championship (Dave Marr was the first, in 1965).
