1967 PGA Championship
Recap and Scores for the 1967 PGA Championship Golf Tournament

The 1967 PGA Championship was the 10th one played at stroke play. In those first 10 years of stroke play, there were two 18-hole playoffs, and Don January was involved in both. In 1961, he lost the playoff. In 1967, he won it.

January defeated Don Massengale in the playoff, shooting 69 to Massengale's 71. January started the final round four strokes behind third-round leader Dan Sikes, and Massengale was six back. Jack Nicklaus was two behind Sikes, and caught him with a 71 to Sikes' 73. But January (68) and Massengale (66) blew by both to finish at 7-under 281 and force the playoff.

The victory was the sixth of January's 10 PGA Tour wins, and his only win in a major. Massengale won twice on tour in 1966, but then never won again on the PGA Tour.
