In one sense Jimmy Walker's steady play was the opposite of what fans commonly associate with the mercurial Phil Mickelson. But as Jimmy Walker finished off a 65-66-68-67 PGA Championship that even Jason Day's late heroics couldn't top, the 37-year-old Texan became the first golfer to grab the Wanamaker Trophy after leading wire-to-wire since Phil Mickelson did it -- also at Baltusrol -- in 2005.
Walker's two-putt par on the 18th hole was enough to withstand World No. 1 Jason Day's eagle on the same hole minutes earlier. It was Walker's first major. Mickelson won two more majors since that Baltusrol domination-- he was 35. Walker will be hoping for similar results going forward.
