1989 PGA Championship
Recap and Scores for the 1989 PGA Championship Golf Tournament

Mike Reid, nicknamed "Radar" for his ability to find the fairway off the tee, shared or held the lead after each of the first three rounds of the 1989 PGA Championship. But he couldn't hold on in the final round.

Payne Stewart, who started the day six strokes behind Reid, carded a closing 67 that included a back-nine 31 and birdies on four of his last five holes. Several other chasers also took advantage of Reid's final-round 74: Curtis Strange (69) and Andy Bean (66) moved up to share second place with Reid, one stroke behind Stewart.

The victory was Stewart's fifth on the PGA Tour, and his first win in a major. He later added two wins in the U.S. Open.

This year marked the final time that Arnold Palmer made the cut in a PGA Championship. Palmer opened with a 68, just two strokes off the lead. He followed with a 74, then a third-round 81 sent him tumbling down the scoreboard. Palmer recovered to close with a 70 and finish at 5-over 293.
