73rd PGA Championship
Every sport has that one magical moment when an unknown or longshot emerges to inspire people everywhere by winning an event few believed possible. For golf, the 1991 PGA Championship produced long-driving John Daly of Dardanelle, Ark. Daly, the ninth alternate, got his chance to compete when Nick Price withdrew to be present at the birth of his child, and three alternates ahead of Daly declined. Without the benefit of a practice round, Daly posted an opening-round 69 to share eighth place. He seized the lead for good, closing the Championship with rounds of 67, 69 and 71 for a 276 total, and a three-stroke victory over Bruce Lietzke.
