The Wall Street Journal: Another major, another first-time winner: Jimmy Walker takes PGA Championship

Springfield, N.J. — The golf season began with a hierarchy that seemed clear. There were three elite players at the top of the sport. Then there was everybody else. But the four major championships conspired to show just how small the gap is between the trio of Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Jason Day and some of their competitors.

This became the year of the first-time major winner, none more improbable than the 37-year-old Texan who walked off with the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday evening.

Jimmy Walker sank a 3-foot par putt on the 18th green at Baltusrol to win the PGA Championship by one stroke over Day, the defending champion.
