Jack Nicklaus and Walter Hagen have won five PGA Championship titles.

The PGA Championship, first played in 1916, transitioned from a match-play event to a stroke-play format in 1958. Since then, there have been 72 total champions, with only a few repeat winners, including stalwarts like Jack Nicklaus and Walter Hagen.

Jack Nicklaus and Walter Hagen have won five PGA Championship titles, marking a historic moment in golf. Nicklaus, known as the “Golden Bear,” won the tournament in 1963 and has since won four more times.

Hagen, a trailblazer in the early 20th century, claimed his first PGA Championship title in 1921 and continued his winning streak in 1924, 1925, 1926 and 1927. Their five PGA Championship victories serve as a testament to their enduring impact on the sport and will continue to inspire generations of golfers and fans.

PGA Championship multiple wins in history

Brooks Koepka won the 2023 PGA Championship, becoming the sixth player in history to win the tournament at least three times. Overcoming injuries, Koepka defended the Wanamaker Trophy, becoming the first LIV Golf player to win a major championship.
