Played at difficult Oak Tree Golf Club in Edmond, Okla., rated as one of the hardest courses in the country, players were concerned that scores would be high. Instead, the 1988 PGA Championship turned out to be the second easiest in Championship history. This made for some exciting golf, as second-round leader Paul Azinger made a hole-in-one, which was witnessed live by millions on TV during the third round. Even with Azinger having a hot hand the entire week, Jeff Sluman proved to be hotter, when he fired a final-round 65. The round included an eagle-3 on the par-5 fifth hole, where Sluman holed a 100-yard wedge.
