Walker wins US PGA title


American Jimmy Walker held off a determined Jason Day fightback to win his first major title at the US PGA Championship at Baltusrol.

The 37-year-old carded a bogey-free three-under-par 67 in the final round to edge out the world number one in New Jersey.

The Australian kept up the pressure with a brilliant eagle at the 18th, but Walker held his nerve to sink a par putt and win by one stroke.

"I said when I birdied 17 that'd probably end it. Then we made birdie but sometimes things just don't come easy," he said.

"Jason is a true champion...eagle on 18, that's unreal. That really put it on me to make a par and pars are hard sometimes. But we got it."

England's Tyrrell Hatton and Paul Casey finished on seven under, seven shots behind champion Walker.

Padraig Harrington was a shot further behind, the Dubliner carding a final-round 68 to finish six under for the tournament.

The 2009 USPGA champion birdied the third and fifth holes, but says the saturated greens stopped him from scoring heavily on the back nine.

"They've put a lot of back pins out there and it's difficult to get close to them with these soft greens," Harrington said.

"I didn't really give myself many chances and it was a little disappointing not to birdie the last, but such is life.

"I probably played my best on Thursday and shot the worst score, which is interesting. Six under is probably a good return on the week, although it's obviously not good enough.

"If it hangs in the top 10 it certainly pushes me up in the FedEx Cup play-offs, which will be nice to know my schedule."
