We all remember Dustin Johnson's ordeal at Whistling Straits last year, but do you remember who hit a perfect 7-iron on the 72nd hole of the 2003 PGA Championship? How about who stole a major championship from Colin Montgomerie in 1995 at Riviera?

GolfDigest.com's Alex Myers broke down some of the most memorable PGA Championship finishes in a slide show: The PGA Championship's Craziest Finishes

TELL US: Which one was the most memorable finish? Read Alex's slide show and sound off below!

And remember to check back with Golf Digest throughout the week for comprehensive coverage of golf's final major championship.

Recently, the PGA has had some great finishes.  The last three have been really good.  I think the Sergio/Paddy battle at Oakland Hills should be on that list.  Paddy made some great putts coming down at the end.  Sergio hitting the pin on 15 and getting hosed and then choking on 16 over shadowed the shots they both hit on 17.

Any of you not old enough to watch Greg Norman get "Twayed" at the '86 PGA and then get "Mized" in the very next major missed one of the most incredulous one-two punches in the history of golf.  

Something that just made you shake your head if you saw both live as they unfolded, which I did.  Unbelievable stuff.

Shaun Micheel. Might not be the correct spelling.

I remember that.  Also throw in 86 Masters and getting beat by a 46 year old shooting 30 on the back nine.
