The 2000 PGA Championship was the 82nd PGA Championship held from August 17-20 at the Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky. Tiger Woods won his second straight PGA Championship and fifth major overall in a three-hole playoff over Bob May. Woods and May finished at 18 under par to set the PGA Championship record to par, which was subsequently equaled by Woods at the 2006 PGA Championship. It was the first time since the PGA Championship was converted from match play to stroke play in 1958 that a player successfully defended his title.

Woods' victory marked the first time since 1953 (Ben Hogan) that a player had won three major championships in the same calendar year. Woods had previously captured the U.S. Open and British Open. He would also go on to win the 2001 Masters to complete the Tiger Slam. For May, this tournament would be the only time he was in contention to win a major.
