The 1958 PGA Championship was the 40th PGA Championship played July 17-20 at Llanerch Country Club in Havertown, Pennsylvania. It was the first PGA Championship held in its current stroke play format; previous editions of the tournament had been contested at match play. Dow Finsterwald won the tournament by two shots over Billy Casper for what would be his only major title.
