In an incredible feat rewriting history at the age of 50, Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson has shown that he remains a force to be reckoned with. Long considered one of golf’s best players, Phil’s faultless technique and peerless mental game propelled him to his second PGA Championship victory. Rolex congratulates Phil Mickelson on winning the PGA Championship title and his sixth Major tournament.
Organized by the PGA of America, the season’s second men’s Major features the strongest field in the game. Rolex Testimonees Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Martin Kaymer, Jason Day, Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka are among the champions whose names are inscribed on the Wanamaker Trophy, awarded to the winner of the event since the inaugural edition.
By winning the PGA Championship in 2019, Brooks Koepka earned a special place in golf history as the first player to successfully defend two Major titles, having won the same tournament a year earlier as well as back-to-back U.S. Open titles (2017 and 2018).
When he won the 2017 PGA Championship, Justin Thomas became only the fourth golfer to win a Major before his 25th birthday. It was a sign of things to come; few others on the PGA TOUR® have achieved such rapid success.
With a handful of top-10 finishes, including a tie for fourth at the 2018 PGA Championship, Jon Rahm has shown he has the credentials to claim a maiden Major title. Since turning professional in 2016, the Spaniard has had a big impact on both sides of the Atlantic.
Jason Day won the 2015 PGA Championship in memorable fashion by becoming the first player in history to finish on 20 under par at a Major.
Martin Kaymer’s triumph at the 2010 PGA Championship heralded a golden period in his illustrious career. The German helped Europe claim victory over the United States on his Ryder Cup debut later that year, and he assumed the No. 1 spot on the Official World Golf Ranking in early 2011.
