PGA Championship previous winners

Based on recent history, Koepka has an edge to win the PGA Championship and win each of the last two tournaments. Koepka is on par with McIlroy for the second-most wins in the millennium (two), with only four behind Tiger Woods. Besides Tiger, Koepka is also the only golfer to have won this event in successive years since 2000; Woods won in 2006 and ’07.

That said, Thomas joins the event after winning the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational and is the last golfer prior to Koepka to win the PGA Championship. Tiger (World No. 15) last won the event in 2007. Here is a full breakdown of the winners (and their share) for each of the last 20 PGA championships:
