PGA CHAMPIONSHIP
WALKER EDGES DAY
 
Jimmy Walker held his nerve and parred the 18th hole to hold off World No. 1 Jason Day by one stroke and secure his first ever major championship. The 37-year-old drained a three-foot putt on his 36th hole of the day after heavy rain all weekend caused Sunday to be the longest final day in the 64-year history of the event. Walker's win at the final major of the season completes the sweep for first-time winners at 2016 Grand Slam events. Random fact: Walker is also an amazing astrophotographer
