Aug. 20

1931–Helen Wills Moody beats Eileen B. Whitingstall 6-4, 6-1 to capture the women's title in the U.S. Lawn Tennis Association championship.

1944–Robert Hamilton upsets Byron Nelson in the final round 1 up to win the PGA championship.

1960–Holland's Hairos II, driven by Willem Geersen, wins the second International Trot at Roosevelt Raceway by a half-length over Italy's Crevacore. A record crowd of 54,861 watches the race.

1995–Monica Seles completes a remarkable first week back in tournament tennis play, demolishing Amanda Coetzer 6-0, 6-1 to capture the Canadian Open. She wins in 74 games, setting a tournament record for fewest number played by a champion.

2000–Tiger Woods wins the PGA Championship in a playoff over Bob May, becoming the first player since Ben Hogan in 1953 to win three majors in one year. He's the first player to repeat as PGA champion since Denny Shute in 1937.

2003–The United States wins the women's overall team gold medal at the World Gymnastics Championships, the first gold in history for the Americans–men or women–at the biggest international event this side of the Olympics. Romania takes the silver medal and Australia wins bronze.

2004–Michael Phelps matches Mark Spitz's record of four individual gold medals in the Olympic pool with a stirring comeback in the 100-meter butterfly, then removes himself from further competition at the games. Phelps nips teammate Ian Crocker at the wall by four-hundredths of a second to win his fifth gold medal. Shortly after winning his seventh medal of these Olympics, Phelps gives up his spot in the medley relay to Crocker.

2006–Tiger Woods wins the PGA Championship closing with a 4-under 68 for a five-shot victory over Shaun Micheel and his 12th career major. He became the first player to win the PGA Championship twice on the same course, having beaten Sergio Garcia by one shot at Medinah in 1999.

2008–In Beijing, Usain Bolt of Jamaica breaks the world record in the 200 meters, winning in 19.30 seconds. Bolt is the first man since Carl Lewis in 1984, to sweep the 100 and 200 gold medals at an Olympics. Bolt is the first man to break the world marks in both sprints at an Olympics–a feat that neither Lewis nor Jesse Owens accomplished. He beat the record of 19.32 set by Michael Johnson at the 1996 Atlanta Games.

2009–Trey Hardee of the United States wins the decathlon gold medal at the world championships in Berlin for his first major title. Hardee has personal bests in three of the 10 events and collects 8,790 points for the gold medal, his highest total to date and the best in the world this year.

2010–Florida Marlins catcher Ronny Paulino is suspended for 50 games after he tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

2012–In a historic change at one of the world's most exclusive golf clubs, Augusta National invites former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore to become the first female members since the club was founded in 1932.
