1920 PGA Championship

The 1920 PGA Championship was the third PGA Championship, which is now considered one of golf's major championships. It was played from August 17–21 at the Flossmoor Country Club outside Flossmoor, Illinois, a suburb south of Chicago. The field of 32 golfers qualified by sectional tournaments. They competed in 36-hole match play rounds in a single-elimination tournament.

Harry Hampton made a surprising run by winning three consecutive matches before finally succumbing to Jock Hutchison in a semi-final match 4 and 3. James Douglas Edgar won the other semi-final over George McLean by a resounding 8 and 7 margin. Hutchison defeated Edgar, 1 up, in the final.

Two-time defending champion Jim Barnes lost in the second round to Clarence Hackney, 5 and 4.
