Jimmy Walker Wins PGA Title in Longest-Ever Finale
You can’t putt anything past him. Saturday’s rain meant Sunday’s final day at Baltusrol Golf Club was a 36-hole slog, and Walker soldiered through to capture victory by a single shot over Jason Day, the world’s No. 1 golfer. The 37-year-old Texan slipped in a 3-foot par on the final hole to nip Day, who charged back into the mix with a late eagle. But Walker’s calm consistency won out, completing this season’s peculiar sweep of the majors by first-time winners.
