1995 PGA Championship at Riviera CC
The 1995 PGA Championship was the 77th PGA Championship, held August 10–13 at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, California. Steve Elkington shot a final round 64 and won his only major championship in a sudden-death playoff. Elkington sank a 20-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to defeat Colin Montgomerie.
Elkington became the fourth Australian-born player to win the PGA Championship, preceded by Jim Ferrier in 1947, David Graham in 1979, and Wayne Grady in 1990.
Brad Faxon shot a final round 63 to climb to fifth place and earned a spot on the Ryder Cup team. His record was 1–2–0 in his first Ryder Cup, as the U.S. team narrowly lost at home.
This was the third major championship at Riviera, which previously hosted the U.S. Open in 1948 and the PGA Championship in 1983. It was the fourth and most recent PGA Championship held in the state of California, with none scheduled through 2018.
