2016 PGA Championship results: Jason Day pushes Jimmy Walker to the limit

That the PGA Championship ended on time Sunday night made us all winners. It’s a saccharine and horrible cliche, but it’s a miracle that we got through the third and fourth rounds at Baltusrol and doled out the Wanamaker Trophy to new champion Jimmy Walker before Monday.

The interminable Sunday started at 7 a.m., with Walker still needing to wait 40 minutes just to tee off in his third round. The entire day felt a little off from there. My colleague made the argument at the start of the week that the PGA is the best major in golf because of the finishes it delivers, providing a course setup that yields lots of birdies and dramatic Sunday leaderboard movement. We thought we would get that on Sunday, with a wet and soft golf course and the PGA making the dramatic step to put lift, clean, and place conditions in effect for the final round. That low 60s number, however, never came. No one could put much of a scare into the wire-to-wire winner … until the final hole.

There was little indication that Walker was ready to turn in this kind of performance. His results on Tour have been middling, and his advanced statistics were nothing special. But he’s a five-time winner on the PGA Tour and had sustained runs
