Jimmy Walker went wire-to-wire to win the PGA Championship by one shot over his closest pursuant. Walker made 9 straight pars to start his final round. On the tenth hole, Walker holed his greenside bunker shot for birdie. He added another birdie on the next hole to increase his lead. On the 600+ plus yard par-5 17th, Walker rolled in another birdie to reach 14-under par. Needing a par on the last Walker calmly hit the final green in regulation and two putted for the victory.
"Golf is not an easy game...sometimes pars are hard, but we got it." Said Walker post round, "there was a ton of support from the crowd and the fans and it was a battle all day."
This is Jimmy's first major championship and 6th PGA Tour Title.
Jimmy relied on FJ Icon Black golf shoes and the StaSof golf glove. Walker also was outfitted in the latest from the FJ Performance Apparel line.
