1982 PGA Championship
Recap and Scores for the 1982 PGA Championship Golf Tournament

When Raymond Floyd opened with a tournament-tying 63, he set the tone for the rest of the week: He was in charge.

Bob Gilder and Greg Norman carded first-round 66s, but couldn't stay with Floyd, who followed his 63 with middle rounds of 69 and 68. Entering the third round, it was clear that Floyd - who set tournament records for best 36-hole score and best 54-hole score (both later broken) - was going to win. And he did, going wire-to-wire.

Lanny Wadkins finished second, three strokes behind Floyd, but had to shoot 67 to Floyd's final-around 72 to get that close.

For Floyd, it was his second win at the PGA Championship, and his third major championship victory overall.
