Walker Wins US PGA Championship

American Jimmy Walker secured his first major title with a one-shot victory at the US PGA Championship at Baltusrol.

The 37-year-old shot a final round three-under-par 67 to finish on 14 under four the tournament, holding off Australia’s world number one Jason Day.

American Daniel Summerhays was third on 10 under, while Open champion Henrik Stenson fell away with a 71 to finish joint seventh on eight under.

This is the first time since 2011 that each of the year’s four majors would be claimed by first-time winners.

England’s Danny Willett won the Masters in April, American Dustin Johnson took the US Open in June, while Swede Stenson won the Open two weeks ago.
