The 2001 PGA Championship was the 83rd PGA Championship held from August 16-19 at the Atlanta Athletic Club, Highland Course in Duluth, Georgia. David Toms won his first major championship by one stroke over Phil Mickelson. The two started out the final round tied for first and were in the final grouping together. They battled for the lead back-and-forth throughout the day, until Toms made a clutch 20-foot putt on the last hole to deny Mickelson his first major. The 265 total for Toms is the record for the lowest number of strokes at a major championship.[1]
