A month before he would arrive at steamy Southern Hills Country Club, Nick Price needed a rally on the final nine holes to win the British Open Championship. Price didn't need a spark at Southern Hills, he had all the fireworks stored in his bag in dominating the year's strongest field. Leading wire-to-wire, Price recorded a memorable final-round 67 for a PGA Championship record of 271 and the lowest 72 hole total in any U.S. major championship. Price became the first golfer since Tom Watson in 1982 to win back-to-back major championships. It was Price's 15th victory since winning the 1992 PGA Championship. With his victory, Price officially earned the world's No. 1 ranking. The 76th PGA Championship involved a record 37 international players, the top 40 players in the Sony world rankings and 75 of the top 100.
