The 1945 PGA Championship was the 27th PGA Championship, held July 9–15 at Moraine Country Club in Kettering, Ohio, a suburb south of Dayton. Then a match play championship, Byron Nelson won 4 & 3 in the final over Sam Byrd,[4] a former major league baseball player.[5]

It was Nelson's fifth and final major title and his second win at the PGA Championship; he also won in 1940 and was a runner-up three times (1939, 1941, 1944). The winner's share of the purse was $5,000 in war bonds.[3][4] The victory was the ninth of Nelson's record eleven consecutive wins in 1945.

Defending champion Bob Hamilton was defeated in the first round by Jack Grout, 4 & 3.

Due to World War II, the PGA Championship was the sole major played in 1945 (and 1944). The three others returned in 1946.
