Best Answer

Tom Watson won it in 1987 when it was known as The Nabisco Championship. But Craig Stadler won it in 1991 when it was known as The Tour Championship.

To improve on the answer to this question, we have to clarify the question. The PGA of America runs the PGA Championship which is the final of four "major" championships held each year. The PGA Tour Championship does not exist. There is, however, a PGA Tour Player's Championship. It was formerly known as "The Nabisco" which was won in 1987 by Tom Watson. The first ever PGA Championship was played in 1916 and was won by Jim Barnes. Jim won $500. Lastly, if the questioner meant, "who won the first ever PGA Tour event?", that would be a tuff one to answer. The PGA was formed in 1968 when some of the touring players broke off from the PGA of America to create their own association. Since that happened mid-season, I can't answer specifically. But I do know that Lee Trevino won his first Major Championship, The U.S. Open...and Roberto De Vicenzo lost his only Major, The Masters, by signing an incorrect score card...and Julius Boros won The PGA Championship in my home town of San Antonio, Texas, at the Pecan Valley Golf Club (my dad took me to see it), all in 1968.
