The 1999 PGA Championship was the 81st PGA Championship held from August 12 � 15 at the Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Illinois. Tiger Woods won his first PGA Championship and second overall major by one stroke over 19-year old Sergio García.
At the time, many (including noted commentator Gary McCord) thought that this tournament would mark the beginning of a long rivalry between Woods and García. García's outgoing antics during the tournament had captured the attention of many golfing fans. However, García to date has failed to win a major championship, while Woods has become one of the most decorated professionals of all time.
