At the 1987 British Open, Paul Azinger bogied the final two holes to lose to Nick Faldo. At the 1993 PGA Championship, it was a different story for Azinger: This time, he rallied down the stretch.

Azinger began the final round one stroke off Greg Norman's lead. But Azinger birdied four of the last seven holes and shot 30 on the back nine (the course record) to tie Norman at the end of regulation. The two matched scores on the first hole of the sudden-death playoff.

But on the second hole Norman missed a 4-foot putt for par, giving Azinger the win.

It was Norman's second runner-up finish in PGA Championships played at Ohio's Inverness Club. He also finished second here in 1986. Norman had previously in his career lost playoffs at The Masters, U.S. Open and British Open. In losing a playoff in the 1993 PGA Championship, Norman became the second golfer (after Craig Wood) to lose in extra holes at all four professional majors.

Phil Mickelson made his first appearance in a PGA Championship here and finished in a large group tied for sixth.

Vijay Singh shot 63 in the second round, tying the tournament and major championship scoring record.
