2002 PGA Championship
Recap and Scores for the 2002 PGA Championship Golf Tournament

Tiger Woods made one of his best Sunday charges in a major at the 2002 PGA Championship, birdying the final four holes in a role at Hazeltine National Golf Club.

Only one problem: It wasn't enough.

Journeyman Rich Beem, best known to this point as one of the wild-and-crazy golfers featured in the book Bud, Sweat and Tees: A Walk on the Wild Side of the PGA Tour, stared down Woods and walked away with his first PGA Tour victory.

Beem began his own march to victory with an eagle on the par-5 11th, the only eagle on that hole in the entire championship. That came with Woods just one stroke behind, giving Beem a nice cushion on the back nine. Down the stretch, with Woods draining his string of birdies, Beem holed a 35-foot birdie putt on the 16th to keep himself on top.

Beem bogied the final hole, but it didn't matter: He had a 1-stroke victory over Woods. The indelible image is of Beem raising his arms after the final putt went in, then shaking his hips in a brief but joyous celebration dance.
